Everyone experiences stress and some experience it more than others. If you're a college student like me, the stress is always handed to you with your classes. If you work, your job may be the source. If you're an athlete, the timing of practices could be your reason.
Overall, no matter what type of life you're living, you most likely know what experiencing stress feels like; it happens to everyone! Whether you're stressed about an exam coming up, a huge sporting game, a musical production you're a part of or absolutely anything else, we all experience it. Stressors vary from small to large, but no matter how small a source of stress seems, it still has an impact.
