Tell Me Why podcast host Maria Botros speaks to Dr. Saliha Afridi, Clinical Psychologist and Managing Director of The Lighthouse Arabia, about the difference between stress and anxiety

  • Anxiety is a mobilizing response to something that will occur in the future
  • Research shows that 80% of our health issues are a result of stress
  • Stress gets out of hand when the demands of your life over exceed your resources
  • People should pay attention to the 'little' stress that occurs regularly, rather than the occasional 'big' stress
  • Stress becomes dangerous when people resort to other habits like smoking, shopping or even eating
