What is Stress?

Stress is common these days. Stress is the emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or demanding circumstances. If a person overthinks a lot, it amounts to unnecessary stress. Your mind and body both can be stressed. Muscle pain, fatigue, and chest pain are the physical symptoms of stress. Body stress is linked to mental stress. When your mind is troubled, your body reacts to it and as a result, you experience aches and pains.

Causes of Stress

People of all age groups and gender face stress in life. A lot of things can cause stress. At the workplace, if targets are not achieved it leads to stress. For a school student, an upcoming exam or a debate or a race might cause stress. For some people, their personal appearance might cause stress. Stress is even caused by relationship issues, competition and financial worries. The same situation might cause stress to one person and make another person excited. For example, going to a social gathering might excite an extrovert but might leave an introvert worried.

We should however not indulge ourselves in addictions like smoking, drinking etc. which only provide temporary relief but not a permanent solution. Ignoring our problems and dwelling on the negatives will make the problem worse. Another thing to be avoided during stress is eating high calorie, high sugar comfort food which can actually cause weight gain and health problems making us feel worse about ourselves. Learning how to cope properly with stress can go a long way in our everyday health and happy life.
