Stress is a sensation of being under unusual pressure. The pressure may come from multiple areas in our day-to-day lives. It may include a transitional period in life, workplace issues, an argument or a fallout with family members or loved ones, and underlying financial concerns. When exposed to one or more stressors, they may cumulatively build upon each other and have severe emotional effects. You may feel upset or threatened when stressed, and the body may develop a stress response. The response can cause more intense emotions, change your behavior, and cause various symptoms because stress can manifest itself emotionally and physically (Seaward, 2021).
