What is chronic stress?
Did you know that when we find ourselves under negative stress, whether due to the constant demands of our daily lives at a professional, family, social, financial or health level, the body reacts as if it is in imminent danger and the fight or flight reaction is triggered, leading to the release of several hormones, including cortisol (known as the stress hormone). Excess cortisol in the body for a prolonged period of time, what we call chronic stress affects us, causing symptoms on an emotional, cognitive, physical level.
Difference between stress and anxiety
As they have several similar symptoms, stress is often confused with anxiety.
Stress - At its origin are factors external to the individual and thus easier to identify the cause. It focuses on current situations and there is a feeling of inability to face the present
Anxiety - (exaggerated) In its origin are factors projected by the individual that are caused by internal and deeper emotional issues. Adverse situations are anticipated, causing a fear of something that has not yet happened, causing a frightening vision in relation to the future
