We know exactly what causes stress in our body!

Turn stress as much as possible to try to limit him. If that sounds like a wild challenge, see what makes its harmfulness and what it can do to the body. Maybe it will force you to at least try to calm the rhythm of his life.

The body is developmentally destined to physically respond to stress - to protect themselves from threats and hazards of various kinds. In the current conception of life is an example of this threat workload, a wide variety of duties, responsibility, personal relationships, but also challenging life situations.

Quick action

If the body finds itself in the short-term threat (you must imagine him as a threat to assault or single working hard task) starts several processes:
Part of the brain called the hypothalamus triggered "alarm" and activates neural and hormonal reactions.
Adrenal glands near the kidneys are instructed to release hormones - such as adrenaline and cortisol.
Adrenaline accelerated rate, increased blood pressure and activates the organism to the action.
Cortisol raises blood sugar levels and support the global body's ability to respond to stressful situations.

Once the threat has passed, hormone levels return to normal, reduced heart rate and the speed returns to the normal functioning of the body.

Permanent emergency exhausts

If the long-term stress and the body because it is "alert" permanent, cortisol levels remain high and many disrupts natural processes. This can cause problems such as:
heart disease,
disturbed digestion,
difficulty sleeping,
impaired concentration.

From panic to peace

Reaction of the organism to stressful situations affecting among other things, heredity or previous experiences. It is partially genes involved in how strong the body's response to prolonged exertion. A significant role is also played out with difficult situations as you had in the past and how to deal generally receive individual moments of stress, which belongs to life. How to protect your body?
Try to remember what situations and circumstances you stressing, and actively Avoid them.
Do not forget to get enough rest and sleep.
The body will react in difficult situations better if it is in good physical shape - regular exercise and a good diet because they have meaning.
Maintain a "healthy" relationship with others and spend some energy and hobbies, not obligations.
