Long-term stress can accelerate aging and cause inflammation in our bodies.

A psychologist with the Cleveland Clinic said stress can make people more vulnerable to chronic diseases.

Unchecked stress can also lead to anxiety and depression. If it starts to prevent you from doing everyday tasks, you should reach out for help.

Another recommendation is to try meditation, which can be as simple as taking some deep breaths.
