We are all faced with varying levels of stress many times throughout the day. Stress is a naturally occurring part of life and in some instances can even be good for us. Stress can act as a motivator for completing tasks. Have you ever worked on a project that has no deadline? How motivated were you to complete it? Answer honestly folks! On the flip side, high levels of stress can negatively impact production and motivation and can lead to toxic stress that often feels debilitating and difficult to manage.
