When does stress turn into anxiety?
That is a very good question. And in order to answer it we first need to look at the difference between stress and anxiety.
There is a lot of stress that comes from simply being overheated; and this causes all sorts of stress disturbances regardless of whether this happens in the office or at work, in your home, during travel, or even at the beach with your family and loved ones.
Here are some quick tips on how to avoid "heat stress" and keep a cool head this summer.
Stress and depression are inextricably linked. Stress often leads to depression and depression certainly causes a person to be stressed out.
It's also easy to think of stress and depression being at different ends of the same stick.

Health stress - If you are ill or worried about your health, the stress is doubled by the worry, and it is especially important to de-stress often, and to pay attention to steering the mind away from worrying.
The body needs all the help it can get to restore itself, and the best thing we can do from our end is to reduce health stress by staying calm and to keep the mind as peaceful as possible.
Many people are not aware of one of the biggest stressors in their life: the emotional baggage that comes with an unhappy childhood.
If you have been ridiculed, neglected, or abused, if you never felt appreciated and cared for as a child, you carry these wounds into your adult life. You are constantly on "high alert", you feel unsafe, and you over-react when painful themes like abandonment and rejection are triggered.
This site is called "StressFish.com" - so of course, we get visitors who are looking for help on fish stress, rather than humans who are being stressfish, as they saying goes!
So we have found a list of reasons for why fish get stressed and what you can do to avoid fish stress - and we've appended a human equivalency because amazingly, stress is stress, whether you are a fish, or a human! This comparison really shows up the basic principles of stress in general as well - so check it out. Are you a stress fish?

What is the best method against stress?
Is it hypnosis, or is it meditation?
Lady Hypnotist Dr Silvia Hartmann reveals all.
A lot of people think of aromatherapy as a slightly "woowoo" hippie thing that doesn't pack a punch, but let me tell you that I've got a deep hole in my computer case. I got it because I placed a bottle of Rose Geranium essential oil on it and it must have leaked a drop or two - and burned straight through the space age plastic!
Apart from the fact that aromatherapy essential oils are madly concentrated - over a million flowers go into a single bottle of Jasmine, for example! - it is their intensive effects on the olfactory system, human smell, that makes them such a perfect choice for stress relieving.
Smell is the only one of our major senses that is not routed through the neo cortex and goes straight into the "reptilian brain" - the oldest parts of our brain, and the ones that have a lot to do with how we experience especially danger and stress.
Herbs are not second best to "chemical medicine" in helping to fight stress. In the contrary - herbs are much more intelligent, have many more components that all work together, and of course, they have EVOLVED TOGETHER with our likewise immensely complicated human bodies, side by side.
Especially when it comes to reducing the effects of stress on the body - which is so more than "just a chemical reaction"! - herbs are a perfect solution to reduce stress related build ups of toxins, to calm the overactive mind, to help break down adrenaline, to strengthen the heart and breathing systems, all of which are under attack by ongoing stress.
Here are the 7 best herbs to reduce stress and the effects of stress.
Imagination is a two edged sword. On the one hand, most of the stress experienced by human being isn't a response to any kind of real danger - like a lion appearing around the corner would be to a gazelle - but is in fact a response to IMAGINED horrors, terrors and worst case scenarios.
So imagination has a lot to answer for - but what is the answer? Should we switch imagination off so we can stress less, or can we use the very thing that causes us the most stress to live beautiful and worthwhile lives?
I am a true expert on the topic of how stupid stress makes a person, and the child of another expert.
Only, my mother never really noticed how BADLY her stress and fear levels influenced her, what TERRIBLE business and life decisions she made, and how her constant stress and fear about health, safety, money and survival issues COMPLETELY RUINED HER LIFE.
HER stress very nearly ruined mine, into the bargain. Here’s just a single grandiose example of hundreds. She was offered a field to buy as a courtesy by a farmer for just $50,000. She could have easily raised a mortgage but was too afraid to take the opportunity. Just one year later, a new road was built and that same field sold for 1 ¾ MILLION Dollars.
Did she cry?
