It's not easy to defind stress. We think we all have experienced stress at some point in our life so the definition for stress should be obvious. Usually we talk about stress when we mean a feeling of mental overload which we have experienced.
There are many definitions for stress - depending on the field of science of the researchers.
Stress has physical and emotional effects on us. Stress creates positive or negative feelings.
Stress can also make changes in our behaviour - usually these changes in our behaviour make us feel even more stressed. For example, we start to consume more alcohol, we increase smoking, we start to leave out hobbies etc, we skip physical work out sessions etc.
So how can we tell what is the optimal level of stress which we can take? We are all individual human beings and we all have our unique requirements. So there is no single level of stress which is optimal for all of us. We all tolerate different amounts of stress. Our optimal stress level also changes with our ages.
People can be devided into three different groups according to how they react to stress.
