Stressors can be chronic pain, infections, extreme cold, extreme heat, dehydration, poor diet, smoking, alcohol, too little exercise, too much exercise, too happy, too upset, too much work, too little work, too much responsibility or only thinking about yourself. You get the idea.

Take care over the holidays.
