  2. Thanks for the list of herbs. Pressure is a part of life, but unless we convert stress into energy and enthusiasm, and become resilient to whatever life throws at us, stress will continue to drain our work performance, health, relationships (both professional and personal) and our ability to accomplish what we want in work and life.
