Stress is perfectly normal and it surely can’t be avoided. In stressful conditions, some hormones are released in the blood and consequently our heartbeat and breathing rate increases. More oxygen goes to the brain and the body copes up with the tough situation quite easily. When the body experiences constant challenges without getting any rest, the health deteriorates significantly. Negative stress causes headaches, high blood pressure, chest pain, stomach problems, insomnia and headaches. The conditions can worsen, if the stress keeps on increasing. Identifying the cause of stress is extremely important as it can solve most of the problems. Some people consume drugs, alcohol and other harmful substances to get temporary relief from stress, but it causes even more damage. A psychologist should be consulted if the problem persists, as it helps in managing unnecessary stress effectively.
