What is actual stress?
Stress is a natural human emotion that affects everyone at some point in their lives. In fact, every human body is designed to recognize and respond to stress. Your body develops a physical response to changes or difficulties (stress). That's the tension.
Your body's stress responses help it adapt to the new environment. Stress is beneficial, it keeps us alert, motivated, and ready to avoid danger. The stress response, for example, helps your body work harder and stay awake as an important event approaches. When stress persists without rest or relaxation moments, it becomes a problem.
What happens to your body when you are stressed?
The autonomic nervous system controls your heart rate, respiration, vision, and other functions. The body's built-in stress response, called the 'Fight-or-Flight Response', helps to cope with stressful situations.
When a person is exposed to (long-term) stress for a long time, constant exposure to the stress response results in dehydration of the body. Symptoms manifest as physical, emotional, and behavioral manifestations.
The physical properties of stress are as follows:
- Pain is a common phenomenon.
- Chest pain or feeling like your heart is beating is a sign that your heart is beating.
- Insomnia or fatigue.
- Headache, dizziness, or chills may occur.
