Stress, anxiety, and depression can make your life hell. At times, it has been found that people don't take stress seriously. Though a small amount of daily stress keeps us motivated and focused still keeping track high-intensity negative stress is very important.
Chronic stress can lead to anxiety and other health problems in the long run. Let's understand first the way our body reacts when it encounters a stressful situation. 
When we as a human being encounters a stressful situation, our brain sends a signal to the body, as a result, the body goes into "fight" or "flight" mode. 
So, what is basically a "fight" or "flight" mode?
In the layman language, it's a preparation by the body to fight any perceived threat.

The body releases cortisol aka "stress hormones" and adrenaline. These hormones increase the sugar level, blood pressure, and heartbeats. After the stressful situation is handled successfully, the original state of the body and mind is restored. The hormone secretion also gets neutralized. 
The process is pretty simple and easy but the problem arises when the encounter of the body is very frequent with the stressful situation. In this case, the restoration of the body function to normal becomes a tedious and delayed task and thus, leads to severe complications.

Examples of a stressful situation:
  • Loss of family members.
  • Fired from a high paying job.
  • Prolonged health problems.
  • Financial instability.
There are can be many other numerous problems that can cause you stress.

Types of Stress:
  • Long-term stress.
  • Short-term stress.
The impact and effect of short-term stress on health and mind goes away with time but long-term stress needs proper treatment. You can inculcate meditation, yoga, and other physical activities like jogging, exercising in your daily routine to balance the ill-effect of long-term stress.
