So what is stress?
Stress is a physical response. Under stress, the body thinks it is under attack and switches to ‘fight or flight’ mode, releasing a complex mix of hormones and chemicals to prepare the body for physical action. This causes a number of reactions, from blood being diverted to muscles to shutting down unnecessary bodily functions such as digestion.
There are very few situations in modern working life where this response is useful. In fact, it needs to be controlled to avoid problems of poor health and burnout.
How does it affect us?
Research shows sometimes stress can be a good response. Stress enhances chemicals such as adrenalin and cortisol. This helps in strenuous activities such as a race. as it pumps and prepares the body.
