How to use stress in a sentence?

  1. Dale Bredesen:

    We are now looking at what is causing illness in order to make a big impact on it, if you're not deteriorating, it's a good idea to do what our moms told us to do: Exercise, get sleep, keep stress down and don't eat junk food.

  2. Arisa Hosaka:

    Exercise relieves stress. Nothing relieves exercise.

  3. Emily Pankhurst:

    I was going through an extremely stressful time, trying to complete deadlines for essays and everything on top of me, i started complaining of fatigue, high temperature and constant headaches, which I believed were stress-related. However, down below I noticed abnormal discharge appear straight after my regular period.

  4. David Herro:

    What we certainly got wrong here is that, when we first started buying, we should probably have stress-tested the balance sheet to price movements a little better, because they were carrying too much debt given the volatility, but they have gone through the right steps to basically de-risk that, and if you look at what they have done since the summer - the equity sale, the asset sales and the asset sales to come - and given that they are taking costs out the business, this company isn't going under. It isn't a black hole, which is what the shorts' story was.

  5. Jessica Matthews:

    Pilot studies have pointed to reduced stress levels after even a single bout of exercise.
