Coping with stress can be challenging in our fast-paced society. But before you set out to confront stress, it pays to understand a little more about it.

Your thoughts can run at a hundred miles an hour and you start to engage in a negative internal dialogue. You believe that if you could only change your thinking you could cope with your stress.
