Stress is the body and mind’s response to the demands of life. In a biological sense, stress can enhance survival (our reaction to meeting a bear in the woods, for example). In small amounts in everyday life, stress can be positive, such as when it helps you conquer a fear or provides extra endurance or motivation to complete a difficult task. Prolonged or intense stress however, can contribute to serious health problems (such as heart disease, obesity, depression, insomnia, high blood pressure and diabetes) through the release of hormones that were meant to protect us against threats.
