Unfortunately this can lead to other, not so pleasant symptoms such as insomnia, digestive problems and exhaustion along with a lowering of the immune system which may lead to further illness.


Exercise is one of the best ways to relieve stress. Start now by going for a walk, swim, jog or cycle. You could even take up dancing, like Darren Gough, and change your life forever.
