Article Body:
Stress is a person’s physical and mental response to environmental pressure. The body has a built in physical
reaction to stressful events. When a person encounters pressure, challenge or danger, he needs to respond
quickly and the body elicits hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline.


This hormones form part of the so called “fight and flight” response, which affects the rate of metabolism,
heart beat and blood pressure resulting to a heightened state, that signals the body for optimum performance
in engaging with stressful situation.


It is necessary to distinguish between temporary stress that will subside when a situation is settled and
chronic or long term stress. Oftentimes, an individual can adjust with short term stress. It can be resolved by
meditation, taking walks and interaction with friend or simply rest/sleep. While chronic or long term, on the
other hand, is more difficult to deal, and eventually result to physical and emotional imbalance.


Walter Cannon, (1896) advocate on stress, made use of an x-ray instrument known as fluoroscope to
observe the digestive system of a dog under stress. He also observed that it causes hormonal imbalance in
the body. With this experiment, Cannon used the term Homeostasis, an equilibrium state of the body.


A Canadian Scientist, Hans Selye (1907–1982), observed that individuals who suffered from chronic
diseases revealed some symptoms related to it. This time, the experiment on rats was done. When rats are
exposed to various physical trauma factors: shock, poison, high temperature, and noise, their glands
enlarged, and thymus gland and lymph nodes shrunken. Selye then created the three Stages of Stress
Response consisting alarm, resistance and exhaustion.


Among the causes of physical or mental stress are unpleasant events such as death of a loved one,
divorce/separation, imprisonment, injury or ailment, marital problem, loss of job, pregnancy or change of
ones financial condition.


Stress is mediated by the hormone, cortisol which is released when a person is stressed over confrontation
with other people or their environment that is thought to overpower their adaptation and threaten their
welfare.


The perception elements of human beings and their reaction to it differ in various aspects. It all depends on
the physical attributes, personality, coping mechanism and general health of an individual.


When one suffers from this, it is important to identify the aspect of life that causes it. Although it cannot be
avoided, simply changing ones lifestyle makes a difference.
