Everyone experiences stress. As we go through life, stress can ebb and flow, depending on our experiences. Our body has a natural reaction to stress called our “fight-or-flight” response. Our stress response is crucial for survival as it allows us to respond to environmental challenges and keeps us safe from danger. However, staying in a state of high stress for a long period of time can lead to a variety of negative psychological and physiological effects on our health. Therefore, it’s important to learn effective ways to manage your stress.
