PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - Stress plays a part in all of our lives and it can, over time, make things worse and worse. If you feel you’re under stress, you have to do what you can, obviously, to relieve the stress, but more important than that, you have to understand what is going on beyond the stress.

What is leading to those problems? If you can actually look at what’s leading to it, try to identify those issues and deal with it, you’re going to be so much better.

Stress is certainly frustrating, but it is something that can be handled as long as you take an optimistic and appropriate approach.
