Stress is a normal reaction the body has when changes occur. Our body can respond to these changes physically, mentally, or emotionally. Stress is the body’s reaction to any change that requires an adjustment or response. The body reacts to these changes with physical, mental, and emotional responses. You can experience stress from your environment, your body, and your thoughts. Even positive life changes such as a promotion, a mortgage, or the birth of a child produce stress.
The human body was designed to experience stress and react to it. Stress can be positive, keeping us alert, motivated, and ready to avoid danger. However, stress becomes negative when a person faces continuous challenges without relief or relaxation between stressors. As a result, the person becomes overworked, and stress-related tension builds.
