What is stress?

Stress is a burst of energy that basically advises you on what to do. In small doses, stress has many advantages - it can help you meet daily challenges, motivate you to reach your goals and help you accomplish tasks more efficiently giving you a memory boost.

Stress is also a vital warning system, producing the fight-or-flight response. When the brain perceives some kind of stress, it starts flooding the body with chemicals like epinephrine, norepinephrine and cortisol. There are two types of stress - good stress and bad stress.

Good stress vs. bad stress

Millions of people suffer from stress each year - 3 out of 4 people say they suffer from high levels of stress at least twice a month.

Unfortunately, our nervous system is bad at distinguishing between good and bad stress, making us more vulnerable and less equipped to fight stress on a daily basis.

Symptoms of stress

Your body may not distinguish between good and bad stress, but it can tell you when you're dealing with too much stress altogether. These are the most commons symptoms of stress:

  • Inability to concentrate or complete tasks
  • Get sick more often with colds
  • Body aches
  • Other illnesses like autoimmune diseases flare up
  • Headaches
  • Irritability
  • Trouble falling sleeping (insomnia) or staying awake
  • Changes in appetite
  • More angry or anxious than usual
