According to Cleveland Clinic, Stress is a normal reaction the body has when changes occur, resulting in physical, emotional and intellectual responses.
Stress can be positive, keeping us alert, motivated and ready to avoid danger. For example, if you have an important test coming up, a stress response might help your body work harder and stay awake longer. But stress becomes a problem when stressors continue without relief or periods of relaxation.
The two types of stress;
Acute stress. This is short-term stress that goes away quickly. You feel it when you slam on the brakes, have a fight with your partner, or ski down a steep slope
Chronic stress. This is stress that lasts for a longer period of time. You may have chronic stress if you have money problems, an unhappy marriage, or trouble at work.
Signs that you are stressed;
Anger, irritability,and, restlessness
Anxiety and depression
Feeling overwhelmed, unfocused and unmotivated
Lack of concentration/ memory
Making wrong decision
Incessant worry and racing thoughts
