To understand what stress does to us, imagine living thousands of years ago, when humans were threatened by hungry animals and lived a difficult existence. Our ancestors had to be able to react instantly, either by fighting or running away.

This "fight or flight" instinct has evolved over time and still aids our ability to respond to stressful situations. It explains why when under sudden stress a burst of exceptional strength occurs and adrenaline surges, as the body pumps out stress hormones.

Stress also causes the following:
Your heart speeds up
Blood flow to your brain and muscles increases up to 400 percent
Your digestion stops (so it doesn't use up energy that's needed elsewhere)
Your muscle tension increases
You breathe faster, and bring more oxygen to your muscles

Stress isn't necessarily a bad thing, and though we still benefit from our "fight or flight" instincts, many of the complex stresses of modern life are not easily soothed by this response. Stress hormones still flood the body preparing you for physical action, which contributes to damage in the body's physical systems. If you are under stress frequently, it causes great harm to your physical and mental health. The key to living a better and healthier life is being able to recognize where stress is coming from and "reset" those "fight or flight" responses.
