Stress affects your mind and your body

Some stress is normal, like taking a driving test or before a date. But when it's affecting your health, it s time to act. That can mean working on what's causing your stress and changing the way you react to it.

When you're stressed, your body releases hormones to help you cope in the moment. For example, your heart rate might increase. High levels of stress, over a long time, can harm your mental health. So it's important to reduce stress where you can.
