Troubled relationships, difficult workplace conditions, financial complications, racial issues, and medical problems are only some of the matters that may contribute to emotional and psychological distress. Stress and worry are feelings that develop out of difficult hardships. Stress is inevitable, and some levels of stress can be healthy. However, persistent, long-lasting, and strong feelings of stress and worry can cause anxiety disorders. Managing your emotions in order to control your levels of stress and worry are key to living a balanced and harmonious life, free of overwhelming stress and worry.
