Stress is the physical and emotional "wear and tear" that people experience as they cope with their environment, whether at home, work or school. When people's coping abilities are able to meet the expectations or demands placed on them, stress is minimized. When the expectations or demands are too heavy, individuals may become  “stressed out.” The key is to either reduce those expectations or to improve one's coping abilities.
