Stress hormones play a vital role in our survival response system, which helps to keep us safe and alive. An optimal amount of stress can motivate us to achieve important goals. So, short bursts of stress are a natural part of everyday life. Normal activities such as exercise, nature, or being with people we love, can help re-cycle stress right back out of our bodies, keeping us healthy.
However, even low levels of constant daily stress that are not re-cycled can cause us to become less productive, less focused and less creative. The effects of unmanaged stress can accumulate and manifest as chronic pain and generalised anxiety, ultimately leading to physical and mental health issues, such as burnout and depression.
Generally, the more often we experience stressful events, the less resilient and more vulnerable we become to new events and trauma. In our modern way of living, our survival response system, designed by nature to protect us, can end up trapping us in a state of constant vigilance, where we no longer feel supported or safe.
