Stress (Definition)

Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body.

Can you please recommend some effective relaxation / stress management techniques?

Breathing: Many good books/sites exist. All will include certain components like correct breathing. The exhale is the part we often get most wrong.
