Stress is a natural physiological and psychological response to challenging or threatening situations. It triggers the release of stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline, preparing the body for a "fight or flight" response. While stress in moderation can be motivating and help us navigate difficulties, chronic or excessive stress can have detrimental effects on mental well-being. Prolonged stress can lead to symptoms such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, and physical health issues. Managing stress is crucial for maintaining good mental health, as it allows individuals to build resilience and cope effectively with life's challenges.
