What is Stress?

Stress, in the most basic of explanations, is when you are overwhelmed and you start to feel emotional and can’t seem to stop feeling or being restless; stress is your body’s natural response to any extreme events happening in your life. You may have heard the term “fight or flight” while either watching a nature or science documentary as they describe how either a human or an animal can choose to either fight back the threat that they may be up against, or to simply run away screaming like a little girl.

This is when adrenaline is pumped into your body thanks to your adrenal glands (located just above your kidneys); as well as from danger, you can get adrenaline from exercise, on an amusement park ride, or even from playing a tense video game. Placed in any situation that requires you to be on your guard at an immense level, your body tells the glands to produce adrenaline to help you in your rash decision-making.

So how does this play out when it comes to stress?

Simply, when your boss tasks you with an insane amount of work, or you’re faced with a stupid amount of housework which needs to be done pronto, your body will start to pump out adrenaline from the sudden onslaught of added pressure, causing you to feel emotional and restless; no matter how hard you try, you can’t stop your leg from jiggling up and down, or your fingers from tapping loudly on the table.

So, how can you stop these uncomfortable feelings and restless feet/fingers?

You have to remember that stress is a natural thing; it’s what kept our ancestors alive for thousands of years, and it will continue to keep us alive for as long as humans exist in the universe. You can, however, soothe the amount of stress you may be under. Of course, a minute hint of it will still be around, but it won’t be as much to the point where it will be affecting your working progress or general emotions.
