When people talk about the stress, they usually think of an unpleasant situation in our lives that causes us to ‘stress out’. In fact, the terminology is not to our understanding of what stress is. Stress happens when our body and mind is going through something we have not encountered before, a situation that is full of changes and different experiences. This may be positive as well.
The stressful situations require that we adapt and change ourselves, which is often achieved with our bodies making tons of hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol to help us slow down the time and give us enough time to react to the new situation. If this makes sense, then you will easy understand how some of the most beautiful periods in everyone’s life can cause great stress. Here are some of the stressful situations all of us will go through in a lifetime, and the situations that we will not be able to avoid, only to deal with and learn how to handle.
