All stress is, is tension. We all need a bit of tension to function properly, because your body is ready for action. Too much tension, however, can cause problems and pain.
If your body experiences stress, it readies itself for fight or flight.
Your brain sends a signal for your body to start making the hormone adrenaline. Your heartrate and breathing pattern speed up and your muscles contract. Now, more oxygen-rich blood travels to your heart and muscles than to for example your digestive system which helps you to optimally react to the “danger”. If the danger hasn’t passed in a few minutes, your body starts making a different stress hormone (cortisol) that keeps you alert and ready. Its effects are normally short term. After that, your body needs a while to recuperate. If the stress continues for a long period of time, you can become overworked or burned out.
