Stress is the human body’s physical response to situations or events that are threatening or that cause one’s balance to be upset in one way or the other. This is a natural procedure of the body and is primarily designed for survival purposes. Indeed, when one senses danger, the body engages its defense mechanism, known as the ‘fight-or-flight’ reaction or stress response. Therefore, in small doses, stress in itself is not bad. However, it becomes dangerous when present in large amounts. This is what in the long term can lead to anxiety, depression, impaired immunity, musculoskeletal problems and cardiovascular disease. It is thus very important for one’s health to know how to relieve stress as well as how to reduce stress.
