Raise your hand if you think that stress is tearing you apart and you can’t take it anymore. Looks like you are in the same boat as everyone else is. And why not? Thanks to the pandemic, stress has become an inevitable part of everyone’s life—now more than ever before. 

The sad part is that stress just doesn’t make you irritable, but also impacts your emotions, physical health, and productivity. It puts a halt on the way you think and growing stress can also lead to a situation where you might be vulnerable to a mental disorder. 

There are multiple things that can lead to stress. It can either be professional or personal. Although, not every kind of stress needs medical attention but prolonged stress can make things really tricky.
