What exactly is stress? People use the term stress to describe a variety of different symptoms and circumstances. Stress is sometimes seen as difficult situations occurring, or feeling overwhelmed, mentally and/or physically.
Most people are sedentary, malnourished but overindulge, and are psychologically overstimulated. Overstimulation can occur through electronic devices such as computers, phones, televisions, overworking, and dealing with instability or change. All these factors will have an accumulative toxic effect on the body causing it to operate in overdrive.
Stress is an indicator that you are finding it hard to adapt to the challenges you may be facing in your life. Our ability to adjust will depend on our internal systems functioning adequately, including our immune, hormonal and nervous system. These challenges do not just include stressful events or situations but also stress on the body resulting from poor diet, lack of exercise, poor sleep, and exposure to toxins. Stress can be a thought, a physical entity, or a reaction to something.
