Stress Management – Emotional stress is directly responsible for many illnesses, and indirectly has a role in promoting the majority all illness. People are more likely to smoke, overeat, drink too much, work too hard, and argue with others when they are feeling stressed. Stress management is an important part of a healthy lifestyle.
