Stress is a very real epidemic, especially for men. It ferments inside all of us and its origins can vary drastically from person-to-person. It can be spiked by social pressures, financial woes and even your genetic makeup. As a man, you might have been discouraged to talk about the ‘S’ word in the past: “Man up and crack on,” and all that nonsense. The reality is that wherever your stress comes from, it should be taken seriously. You can be mighty ill off just a little bit of stress, so don’t let it get the better of you. Don’t let it snowball out of control.
