Stress is the brain and body’s response to change, challenge, or demand. It is the body’s natural defense against danger brought on by an event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, or nervous.  Employees at all levels feel stress. Many people feel that the demands of the workplace combined with the demands of home are overwhelming.
