Stress is a form of psychological reaction that normally occurs when there is an increase in the burden of life, social, work, and so on. Stress arises as a self-warning that the brain is under excessive pressure. Life challenges, interpersonal problems, and difficult social situations can all contribute to the feeling of stress. However, not everyone's stress is bad. Some level of stress is good for a person and can help achieve peak performance and manage minor distress. However, stress can become a 'crisis' when a person faces constant challenges without any relief or relaxation and this stress can cause body wear and deterioration on a physical and psychological level. It only becomes dangerous when the situation becomes permanent and the body cannot break down the stress hormones released. Before this point is reached, the body shows signs and symptoms of stress.
