The majority of Australians feel that stress impacts their physical health (72%) and mental health (64%) but very few reported seeking professional help. (Stress and Wellbeing in Australia Survey 2015)
How does stress affect you?
Do you thrive from stress or is it affecting your mental and physical well-being?
Do you continue what you are doing or is it time for change?
Let’s look at both sides of the coin with the upcoming debate on Good Stress vs Bad stress.
