Identifying the sources of your stress can help you better manage your stress levels
and mitigate the negative effects of stressful situations. Major stressors such as
changing jobs, moving, or going through a divorce may be obvious and easy to identify,
but more subtle stressors like everyday worries, family conflicts, and financial strain
may also be the factors ultimately impacting your health. Below, we have categorized
