On a basic level, stress can be defined as “a psychological feeling of strain and pressure.” It can be caused by big changes in a person’s circumstances, even positive ones such as having a baby. Stress can also be caused by a feeling that you are not in control of your life.

Stress can cause physical changes to the body, such as increased heart rate and shortness of breath. On a more emotional level, it may cause you to feel anxious or irritable and may lead to feelings of being overwhelmed by life.
