Stress is a condition that activates a feeling of tension, pressure or strain in a person’s mind. When you sense or face any kind of threat, provocation, danger or challenge, some chemicals and hormones (as adrenaline and cortisol) flow in your body. The flow of hormones creates a feeling of stress in the body and it provokes you to choose from a fight-or-flight response.
Normally after a stressful situation, your body and mind get relaxed but if the feeling stays for a longer time then it could affect your health. It makes the heart beat faster and increases the blood flow in all the organs
