People can experience high stress when there is an unbalance between the demands on their energy and the resources available to meet these demands, although the degree of stress can be moderated by different factors such as thinking styles, personality and coping skills. Many people need some degree of stress or pressure to motivate them to get things done, however health and performance can be negatively impacted by chronic high stress. Consequences of chronic stress can be cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, fatigue, anxiety or depression.
