Even though a small amount of stress can be good for you, multiple daily challenges can take a toll on your physical and emotional health. Stress can contribute to high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity and diabetes. To reduce stress, make time to move more, eat well, connect with others and explore new things. Making simple changes can boost your mood, help prevent long-term diseases and improve your immune system.
