Stress and you

A bit of stress is normal and can help push you to do something new or difficult, but too much stress can take its toll.

There are many reasons which can cause stress, including work, relationships and money problems. Stress can affect how you feel, think, behave and how your body works – from how well you sleep to your immune system.

In the short-term that’s not really a bad thing, but long-term stress puts your health at risk.
