Stress is a natural state of the body, which was developed by evolution as a reaction to danger or a complicated situation. It mobilizes all the resources of the human body and helps to develop effective protection for it.
When you have stress, the concentration of certain hormones increases in the blood, especially adrenal hormones - adrenaline and cortisol. They increase the frequency of heartbeats, breathing, and metabolism. In other words, stress is a protective mechanism inherited by humans from the animal world.
Does this mean that stress is not dangerous? This is not so. After all, not always the level of stress can be adequate. In addition, prolonged unceasing stress, albeit of low intensity, unambiguously harms the nervous system and the entire body as a whole. Look at 10 stress-relief strategies for the busiest days:
