Concept of Stress

The word “stress” can be replaced with words pressure, strain, or tension. Stress can be defined as the reaction of a body to any change that has taken place in one's life, which requires adjustment either physically, mentally, or emotionally. Stress can occur by any kind of situation or even thought that makes feel frustrated, mad, annoy, or nervous (Cotton, 1990, pp. 27-28). Stress has certain stages, which includes,

The first stage refers to as “alarm” which is characterized by the raised activity of sympathetic nervous system. This system prepares the person's body for some kind of emergency response.

In the second stage “resistance”, the person is able to maintain the prolonged alertness, struggle with infections, and cure wounds.

The third stage of stress “exhaustion” makes the person extremely tired and inactive because his/her immune systems are no longer in a position to bear the height of stress (Kalat, 2008, p.366).

If it has been noticed at the first stage of alarm, then it is easier to overcome the chances of the worst situation that might occur in the future as a response.
