Stress in simple words-

Tension is a feeling of emotional or physical tension. It can come from any event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, or nervous. Stress is your body’s response to a challenge or demand. In short bursts, stress can be positive, like when it helps you avoid danger or meet deadlines.

Effects of stress on your mental or physical health –
When you are in a stressful situation, your body initiates a physiological response. Your nervous system kicks into action, releasing hormones that prepare you to fight or take off. This is called the “fight or flight” response, and that’s why, when you’re in a stressful situation, you may notice your heart beating faster, your breathing faster, your muscles tense up, and you break out in a sweat. This type of stress is short-lived and temporary and your body usually recovers quickly from it.
