A constantly runaway life and an accumulation of responsibilities can lead to the proverbial “hysterical crisis”.

Consequences of prolonged stress
It is difficult to define stress clearly. Doctors, pharmacists and other specialists define it as a state of chronic and at the same time excessive nervous tension, which in the long run leads to persistent disturbing excitement and disruption of the natural balance of the body. It is not difficult to guess that the consequence of such a state is a sharp deterioration in the psychosomatic state and a significant hindrance in the performance of daily activities.
The intense effect of stressful stimuli over time leads to imbalances in the economy of neurotransmitters - chemical compounds that allow neuronal information to be communicated between nerve cells and between the nervous system, glands and muscles. The result of stress can be the appearance of a number of unpleasant symptoms:
- excessive dryness of the oral cavity,
- marked decrease in the level of concentration,
- discomfort and feelings of low self-esteem,
- an appetite for sweets that is difficult to control,
- sleep problems and difficulty falling asleep,
- painful and uncontrolled muscle spasms,
- Constant fatigue and a constant feeling of lack of energy,
How do you manage stress?

Sports have always been considered the best way to deal with many problems, especially those that affect well-being and emotional sphere. During physical activity, the body releases endorphins - hormones of happiness - that significantly improve mood and help
reduce the constant feeling of tiredness. Any form of physical activity is good - the most important thing is that the exercises performed are entertaining and do not cause additional frustration. 30 minutes a day is enough to deal with stress.

All this to counter pressure in a firm manner and from several sides.
Good sleep and recovery
Stress is often caused by intermittent nights and sleep deprivation. Discomfort and exaggerated nervousness do not lead to sleep, and shortening the duration of sleep affects the total amount of available energy. It's like insufficient regeneration, for example after an exhausting workout, or a very long and stressful day at work. Rest is a very important aspect in the context of stress management - it must be remembered that everyone needs a moment of rest to catch their breath.
