Fighting stress

Why does stress appear ?

Whenever you find yourself in an emergency situation, your adrenal glands start producing adrenaline.

Stress can play a positive role and can even prove necessary in emergency or stressful situations (fighting, being assaulted, working out, etc.).

The higher adrenaline levels that can be observed when you are faced with stress or when you prepare to work out are in fact an alarm signal. They mean that your body needs more energy to respond to danger: in a matter of seconds, your heart rate and your tension increase, and you breathe much more quickly. This helps provide your muscles and your brain with more oxygen.

Your glycemia levels also increase sharply - this allows your body to produce enough energy as it prepares to face up to danger - or to flee it.

The negative impact of stress on our health

When it not properly managed, however, stress has a negative impact on your well-being and on your health. It contributes to several disorders - anxiety, nervous breakdown, migraines. It also has a negative impact on people with cardiovascular disease.

Negative stress is useless. We experience negative stress because of stressful events in our personal lives: a relative who passes away, a divorce, a break-up...Negative stress is also experienced in professional settings, for example when someone gets laid off, is unemployed, is overworked...Negative stress can also be due to social phobias, natural disasters, etc.

Negative stress drains the energy of our system. When faced with negative stress, we become irritable and nervous. Negative stress fosters several disorders - hyper-emotional behavior, hyper-vigilance, nervous depression, anxiety, functional diseases (hypertension, migraines, headaches, etc.), or even organic diseases, such as cardio-vascular diseases.
