Stress involves your body and your mind, which is why you need to learn how to not let it get out of control, but before you can begin to control it, you have to know what it feels like. Some people will NEVER learn this in a whole lifetime, but you can learn to manage stress if you want to. Stress management programs teach workers about the nature and sources of stress, the effects of stress on health, and personal skills to reduce stress-for example, time management or relaxation exercises. Stress may be regarded as a physical and/or emotional response to the demands being made on us. Our response, which will vary from individual to individual, is determined by our ability to cope with such pressures.

Stress can significantly affect many of the body's immune systems, as can an individual's perceptions of, and reactions to, stress. The term psychoneuroimmunology is used to describe the interactions between the mental state, nervous and immune systems, as well as research on the interconnections of these systems. Stress affects the mind, body, and behavior in many ways- all directly tied to the physiological changes of the fight-or-flight response. The specific signs and symptoms of stress vary widely from person to person. Stress overload often results from having too many responsibilities. You can free up time and decrease stress by delegating responsibilities.

Stress can affect anyone - even kids - who feels overwhelmed. Toddlers, for example, may be anxious if the person they most need to feel safe - a parent - isn't around enough. Stress may be caused either by major upheavals and life events such as divorce, unemployment, moving house and bereavement, or by a series of minor irritations such as feeling undervalued at work or dealing with difficult children. Sometimes there are no obvious causes. Stress causes more glucose to be delivered to the brain, which makes more energy available to neurons. This, in turn, enhances memory formation and retrieval.

Stress hormones increase blood pressure, heart rate, and blood sugar levels. Small amounts of stress are believed to be beneficial, but chronic (persisting or progressing over a long period of time) high levels of stress are thought to be harmful (1 ). Stress releases powerful neurochemicals and hormones that prepare us for action (to fight or flee). If we don't take action, the stress response can lead to health problems.
