Stress is a natural response that is often related to one’s life events, such as losing a loved one, going through divorce, losing a job or falling ill. It can also be triggered by the day-to-day tasks such as constant work deadlines, tense relationships with spouse and children or even with traffic jam.

Developing a positive mindset is imperative to cope with stress and achieving work life balance. People who have got optimism thinking and coping skills are able to manage their stress better.

Yet if your stress levels are not controlled, it can elevate far longer than necessary and that can take a toll on your health. Chronic stress can cause a variety of symptoms and affect your overall well-being. Symptoms of chronic stress include irritability, anxiety, depression, headaches and insomnia. You can change this by deciding to take action to improve how you understand and manage your stress levels.
