We all need a certain amount of pressure to work but stress occurs when we feel more pressure than we can cope with. Individuals vary in their capacity to deal with stress.
Excessive stress can result in a reduced quality of work as concentration, memory and thought processes are affected. It can also affect our social relationships.
The more relaxed we are, the better the mind works. We become more capable and adaptable to periods of greater pressure as well as coping more effectively with the day-to-day stresses of life.
