It can happen when you're late and stuck in traffic, about to make the presentation that may save your job, or opening yet another due bill – heart-racing, stomach-churning stress.

Learning how to recognise stressors and stress-management techniques is a practical investment in your own good health. Write to the Stress Reduction Expert for advice on how to reduce the impact of tension and pressure.
