Stress is hard to define because it means different things to different people; however, it's clear that most stress is a negative feeling rather than a positive feeling. Stress may manifest itself through physical symptoms such as fatigue, headaches, and muscle pains. If you begin to notice that are suffering from physical symptoms such as insomnia, backaches, headaches, or high blood pressure on a regular basis, you may be suffering from stress. Similarly, if you notice that you feel “out of control”, constantly irritable, or lack a general peace of mind, you might also be dealing with the effects of having too much stress in your life.
