Doctor discusses importance of getting help for stress

There is no single definition for stress, but the most common explanation is physical, mental, or emotional strain or tension.

While not all stress is bad, long-term stress can have harmful impacts on physical and mental health.

Dr. Marius Commodore, with Nurx, says it’s important to recognize quickly if your stress is a real problem or just the blues.

Commodore says data is showing stress and depression has increased a fair amount during the pandemic.

He says it’s important to know when to seek help – starting with when you become unable to do the basic functions of your day.
