Stress – Effects And Ways To Stop It
Stress is defined as “a specific response by the body to a stimulus that disturbs or interferes with the normal physiological equilibrium of an organism.” Stress effects millions of people every day. It can be caused by physical, mental, or emotional stimuli. Physical stress is caused by things such as the burden of recent injury or illness that makes performing normal, daily activities extremely difficult or performing hard labor that is physically taxing and that demands more of you than you are physically able to do. Mental stress is a kind of stress that is often experienced by students who are over burdened by their course load or on the job when you under pressure to meet a deadline or to do extensive research. Perhaps the most common stress is emotional. This is caused by the death or illness of a loved one, a horrible boss, negative love relationship, the depression associated with a loss or illness, divorce, or a wide number of other factors.
