In our daily life, we are very much stressed with stress. So, let’s see what stress is. Stress is the pain we inflict on ourselves through our negative through patterns. In a biological or medical context stress is a physical, emotional, or mental factor that causes mental or bodily tension. It can grow by external factors (from the social situations, psychological, or environment,) or internal factors (illness, or from a medical procedure). It causes the body to be full of hormones that prepare its systems to avoid or deal with danger. Stress can start with “fight or flight” response, a depth reaction of neurologic and endocrinologic systems.
Men’s body is designed to experience stress and react to it. Sometimes it can be positive. It keeps us alert for our upcoming challenges. For stress we can be ready for any danger. That’s why we have a hurry nature to make our duty complete. For example: Suddenly, You received an assignment. It will be submitted within seven days. But the assignment is very large. It will make you stressed. It has a good sign. For this stress, you will complete your duty in time. But if you haven’t this stress, you will complete your assignment in very slow way.
But it has negative sites too. It will be negative when a person faces continuous challenges without relief or relaxation from it. As a result, stress-related tension builds in that person. In hazardous or challenging situation, people’s stress can be grown. e.g. When a person deliver speech he/she is sweating. It is a sign of a stresses. There are more symptoms like depression, pain in the back or chest, headaches, anger, nail biting, restlessness, social withdrawal, anxiety, sleeping problems, relationship difficulties, sadness, higher rate of tobacco consumption, frequently crying etc.

There are uncertainty, waiting for an important outcome, retirement issue, family problems like relationships, marriage, divorce, abortion or pregnancy loss, lack of time for oneself, long term illness, social issues like fear of crime or problems of neighbors etc.
But we can less our stress. what we should do. There are plenty of ways stress management. Negative self-talk is a major causes for stress. We think that we are nothing. Nothing will happen by us.
