People nowadays seem to have very busy lifestyles. Most people work from 9 in the morning to 5 or 6 in the afternoon, in addition, many people spend up to 2 or 3hours a day commuting to and from work, which leaves little time for leisure activities.
Stress has both good sides and bad sides. It can motivate you to be more productive. However, too much stress, or a strong response to stress, is harmful.
It can cause poor health as well as physical or psychological illnesses like infection, heart disease, or depression.
