Stress generally refers to two aspects. The first is the psychological perception of pressure and the second is the body’s response to it. A stressful event triggers a release of hormones that generates an increase heart rate and circulation of blood. The body mobilizes fat and sugar for fast energy. Attention is increased and muscles are prepared for action. It generally takes time for the body to calm down after the stress response has been triggered. Changing the stress mindset not only can minimize the effects but can enhance performance and productivity.
