I've recently been travelling in Central America and whilst we were on an early morning hike, one of my group started jumping in puddles like a young child, declaring “If you’re ever feeling sad, just put on your wellies!”
People used to refer to the word or phrase of the state of their ‘nerves’ rather than the word ‘stress’.
It was Walter Cannon who actually developed the term stress in his work relating to the flight-or-flight response in 1932.
In research terms stress now embraces biochemical, behavioural, physiological and psychological effects.
Stress is a normal part of life. Many events that happen to you and around you, and many things that you do yourself, put stress on your body.
You can experience stress from your environment, your body and your thoughts and other people’s responses to you!
