Stress is your body’s response to certain situations. Stress is a subjective. Not all stresses are “bad”; for example, graduating from college may be considered a “good” stress. Stress can affect your physical health, your mental health, and your behaviour. Your heart rate increases, your brain works faster and becomes razor sharp, you have a sudden burst of energy. This response is natural and basic. Stress overload, however, can have harmful effects. You can’t run away from stress but you can avoid the situation which will lead to stress. Here are some rules that will help you cope up with stress.
