tress as a word is getting thoroughly devalued through over-use.
“I’m so stressed!!”
We hear it all the time.
People complain about it frequently and blame it for a range of problems, from mistakes at work to the breakdown of relationships, from fatigue to major health issues.
Everyone is ‘under stress’ and, as a result, there is little sympathy when someone else claims to be feeling the pressure.
Stress, however, has a massive impact on general health and wellbeing and that means it matters in business.
