Stress is a common factor in today's busy and competitive world. There is a lot of pressure and stress about literally everything, be it a career, relationships, friendship, etc. We face a lot of challenging situations in our day-to-day lives that stress us out. So what exactly is stress?

Stress is something that we experience in situations where we are unable to control or decide anything. Emotional strain and pressure caused by this inability are called psychological stress. Rapid heart rate, feeling overwhelmed, fatigue, difficulty sleeping, frustration, and persistent thoughts about one or more stressors are signs of psychological stress.

Have you ever thought stress could be beneficial? Well, a small amount of stress may be beneficial. It helps with focus, energy, performance, and motivation. Stress helps you make fast decisions, which is good in some situations. Good stress is called eustress.

Stress, on the other hand, has a negative impact. It also has some physical effects. Mild effects like headaches, digestive issues, body pains, and chronic stress can cause serious health issues such as heart disease, high blood pressure, depression, diabetes, and obesity. Identifying problems is always the first step toward solving or managing them.

Be kind to yourself - You have to understand that just because you are under stress, you are not weak, less talented, or not capable.

Count on the people you can trust - Whenever you feel stressed, reach out to someone that you trust.
