When we're stressed at work, our reaction is often to work harder, longer or faster - which creates even more stress and usually still doesn't get the job done. If we're stressed because of our personal circumstances, it can be tempting just to ignore the problem or put others first, especially if the stress is caused by caring responsibilities. Stress is a fact of life - we just can't avoid it, but prolonged stress can be dangerous
