January 8, 2022
What is stress?
Explain that this stress is such a condition and that it triggers a particular biological response. When you experience a threat or a great challenge, it is only in your body that chemicals and hormones increase throughout your body.
Explain that it is this stress that triggers your own fight-or-flight response to fight the stress and either run away from it. Usually, after the reaction has occurred, it is only then that your body should rest. That too much constant stress can have a negative impact on your long-term health as well.
Is all stress bad?
Let me tell you that it is not necessary that this stress is a bad thing. It also helped our hunter-gatherer ancestors survive, and at the same time is just as important in today’s world. And at the same time it can be healthy and that while it helps you avoid accidents, and also meet a tight deadline, and either it is about itself in the midst of chaos. So he keeps his intellect.
And we all feel stressed at some point or the other, but what one person finds stressful as well as another person feels stressful and it can be very different from that. And friends, that would be an example of this in public speaking. And only one likes the thrill of it and at the same time, he gets paralyzed by thinking of it.
Keep in mind that stress isn’t always a bad thing either. For example, your wedding day can be considered a very good form of stress.
Please note that this tension should be temporary. And that’s all, once you get past the fight-or-flight moment, your heart rate, along with it, your breathing should slow down and your muscles should relax. And let us tell you that in a short time, it is your own body that it should come back to its natural state without any permanent negative effects.
On the other hand, severe, persistent and prolonged stress can be very harmful both mentally and physically.
Note that this and that are quite common. And with that, when asked about it, 80 percent of Americans said they had at least one symptom of stress in the past month. And in addition, that twenty percent reported being under extreme stress.
Life is like that, and it is not possible to eliminate stress completely. And with that, but we can learn to avoid it when possible and manage it when it’s unavoidable.
Explain that this stress is a normal biological response to a potentially dangerous situation. When you encounter that sudden stress, your brain floods your body with chemicals and its hormones like adrenaline as well as cortisol.
Let me tell you that more than this, your heart also beats very fast and along with this it also sends a lot of blood to the muscles and vital organs so that’s your feels energized or have heightened awareness and so that you can focus on your immediate needs. And with that I am all those different stages of stress and also how do I handle those people.
Friends, tell that when you feel danger, and that is the hypothalamus reaction based on your brain that’s sends to nerve or hormone signals to your adrenal glands so that it releases an a abundance of the hormones.
Let us tell you that these hormones are nature’s way and they prepare you to face danger and at the same time they increase your chances of survival.
One of these hormones is adrenaline. And you may also know it as epinephrine, or the fight-or-flight hormone. And at the same time it works adrenaline, in very rapid fashion:
- raise your heart rate
- and let you increase your breathing rate
- and you make it easier for your muscles to use the glucose
- and that make your blood vessels contract and that so that this blood can be directed to the muscles
- make you sweat
- you stop that insulin production
Friends, although this is helpful at this time, and this but due to repeated adrenaline surges, these can also happen:
- and this damaged blood vessels
- as well as this high blood pressure, and either that high blood pressure
- You have a higher risk of heart attack as well as stroke
- your headache
- worry you
- you have insomnia
- you gain weight
- And friends, here’s what else you should know about Adrenaline Rush.
Note that adrenaline is important, however, and it is not the primary stress hormone. That’s cortisol.
Stress and cortisol
It should be noted that as the main stress hormone, it is that cortisol itself plays an essential role in stressful situations. And these are among its functions:
- And this is to increase the amount of glucose in your own bloodstream.
- And it can also help your brain use glucose more effectively.
- as well as increasing access to substances that help with tissue repair.
- stopping unnecessary actions in case you have a life-threatening situation
- and it then alter the immune system response
- Reducing the reproductive system as well as the development process
- affecting the parts of the brain that control fear, motivation, as well as mood
Let us tell you that all this helps you to deal with high-stress situations much more effectively. And at the same time it is a normal process and at the same time important for human existence.
But if that, then your cortisol level remains high for a very long time, and that is the only negative effect on your health. And friends he can contribute to:
- you gain weight
- you have high blood pressure
- you have sleep problems
- you lack strength
- and type 2 diabetes
- and this osteoporosis
- You have brain fog and memory problems
- you have a weakened immune system, and that makes you more vulnerable to infection
And that it can have a negative effect on your own mood, and you can naturally lower your own cortisol levels by simply doing this:

Explain that this intense stress can also come from something that you really enjoy very much. So that’s somewhat a frightening and now so thrillings feeling when a skiing on a roller a coaster or down a steep mountain of slope.
Be aware that these incidents of acute stress usually do not cause you any harm. And with that I think they can be good for you too. Stressful situations give your body and mind the exercise to develop this best response to future stressful situations.
Please note that this is once the danger has passed, and only then should your body systems return to normal.
