    pressure and stress

    Hi there,

    Can stress and pressure go with the following verbs?


    I relieve /reduce/combat / release my stress or pressure by doing more exercises.

    In this context, stress, not pressure.

    You could say "I reduce the pressures in my life by doing lots of exercise".

    Ok teacher, but I think I can say: Iím feeling pressure (or Iím going under pressure) and Iíve to combat by doing exercises.
    Sometimes changing some words the result is the same : All roads lead to Rome!
    bye
