Stress is something that everyone deals with on a daily basis, however come holiday season the stress tends to grow greater compared to the rest of the year.
Ed Lacheta is the Clinical Director with Shelby County Community Services. He says stress can be a difficult term to understand.
Lacheta says not all stress is bad stress, dealing with a little bit of stress can in fact boost concentration and retention for instance when studying for a test. Chronic stress is something to watch out for and the holiday season can bring that out.
Lacheta appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
