True, you shouldn’t worry about stress; you should do something about it. Medical science has shown that physical and emotional health cannot be separated. Being stressed over a long period of time has been linked to problems like depression, heart disease, diabetes, hair loss, sexual dysfunction, and many others. Stress can even make existing medical conditions worse. And no one has to tell you that being unemployed is highly stressful.
