Stress can directly affect your behavioral, cognitive, emotional and physical health. But not all stress is bad and can even improve productivity and performance when occurring over short durations. However, when stress is chronic, this is when problems can arise, leading to serious conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression and anxiety disorder.
