Stress And Its Effects On Your Body

May 6, 2008
Stress can be defined as a nature's way of letting you know that your mind and body have had enough. In case of stress, forces present in the outside world affect the individual in an adverse manner. People tend to respond to stress in many ways.

These responses in turn, affect both the individual and the environment in different ways. This is the reason that all living being constantly interchange with their surroundings in terms of behavior as well as physically.

There are major differences in the way a living creature relate to the environment. These differences play an important role in the survival of an individual.

A lot of stress experienced in daily life can make one think negatively or take stress as a negative experience. However, experts feel that biologically stress can be either of the below:

* Negative experience

* Positive experience

* Neutral experience

Generally, stress is associated to internal as well as external factors. The internal factors include your body's capacity to respond to stress producing factors, your body's ability to deal with external factors that induce stress.

The external factors include the following:

* The physical environment

* Your job

* Your relationship with people around you

* Your home

* Challenges

* Difficulties

* Expectations

* Obstructions

The internal factors tend to put an impact to your ability to handle stress. The nutrition that you get, your health, level of fitness, emotional state, and amount of sleep and rest you get are responsible for your ability to handle stress.

Stress has known to result in evolutionary change. Experts feel that the species that tend to adapt the best to major causes of stress survived. These evolved in to the planet and different animal kingdoms we get to see around us.

The human being is considered to be the most adaptive creature existing on this planet. This is because the evolution of human brain and the important part known as the neo-cortex existed. This adaptability is contributed by the transformation and stressors that one has suffered and mastered.
