What is Stress?

Stress is the physical and emotional response our body has to challenging situation that we perceive as a threat. A certain amount of fear can be generated resulting in the activation of the Fight/Flight response in the body. This results in stress response hormones such as Adrenalin, Noradrenalin and Cortisol, flooding the body resulting in a racing heart rate, rapid breathing, muscle tension and a sense of confusion.

In small amounts, stress is useful to help us respond quickly in a dangerous situation or to keep us motivated to achieve our goals.

When stress levels are high or chronic stress is experienced, our general health and wellbeing can be negatively affected due to the constant action of stress hormones.

Signs of Stress


  • Irritability

  • Poor concentration
  • High blood pressure
  • Poor sleeping/insomnia

  • Anxiety

  • Headaches

  • Reduced immune function

High levels of stress and prolonged stress are detrimental to our health and wellbeing and reduce our ability to lead a full and meaningful life.
