What is Stress?

  • What Is Stress? or how it  affect?

Psychologically, when we are in stress we face..

  • vivid images and heightened sensitivity to feelings.
  • higher concentration on the present
  • and thoughts about the next few minutes.

Physiologically we experiencing similar problems like-

  •  higher metabolism rapid heartbeatanxiety
  • and breathing,
  • active sweat glands
  • and so on.

 Many of us think ‘stress’ word has particular meaning which is something horrible.

But, many psychologists have different opinions about stress. Which is , something that can have positive effects in our life too!!

Why is so?

Why this confusion is ……. This is because, how an individual evaluates his or her own mental and physical state may differ from others.

So there are actually two meanings of the word ‘stress’  sometimes get mixed together.

  •  One refers simply to the heightened awareness and the physiological symptoms described above.
  •  The other is essentially equivalent to the combination of worry and those symptoms. The latter can have negative health consequences, since those symptoms can be physically harmful. But since humans are both mind and body and the two aspects affect one another, the psychological part is just as important.

But there are key differences, at least psychologically. Whether you feel stress or elation can often turn on how you evaluate external circumstances and your own inner state.
