Stress vs strain

It’s not stress that gets to you. There are a lot of people who deal with high stress but also manage mentally and physically healthy. It’s when you have strain, which results when we can’t resolve a problems in our lives and start to feel stuck. People in high strain environments have higher cortisol in their systems, have more heart attacks, and have more problems with substance abuse and addiction [1].

The key seems to be finding ways to solve the problems we are faced with so they don’t fester and cause strain.
