However, chronic stress can be problematic for your health.  It’s hard not to get overwhelmed between work, school, family, and other commitments.  It is important to take a bit of time out of your busy schedule to unwind and relax, otherwise your body will suffer both physically and mentally.  Learn to manage your stress in a positive way to minimize your risks.  Exercise, meditation, and self care (for example a massage) are all good options to help manage your stress.
