If you see your mother or wife talking at the top of their voice, ask what is stressing them off lately. If your boyfriend/ husband speaks less, ask them what makes them feel so low. If your kids have suddenly stopped talking to you, ask if they were bullied or not. 


It solves many problems in life if your approach is positive. There can be many reasons why someone is so stressed. After all, there is so much happening around us that it makes us vulnerable or feel overwhelmed. 

There is a verse in Bhagwat Gita that says,


For him who has conquered the mind, the mind is the best of friends; but for one who has failed to do so, his mind will remain the greatest enemy.

Bhagvad Gita


Stress is an emotional or physical state of tension. Any situation or concept that causes annoyance, rage, or anxiety can make you stressed.  Stress is your body’s reaction to a demand or task.  Your body’s stress responses help it to integrate into new surroundings. Stress can be remedial because it keeps us attentive, motivated, and set to avoid danger. For example, If you have an important test, your reaction to that stress may help your body work harder and make you stay awake a little longer.  However, when stressors persist without release or moments of relaxation, it becomes a problem, so yelling out louder helps a lot.

There are Different Types of Stress


Eustress is a form of Positive Stress and positively impacts motivation, performance, and emotional well-being. It releases happy hormones dopamine and oxytocin throughout the body.


Distress is a form of negative stress, and the body overpowers with emergency hormones such as Cortisol and Adrenaline during negative stress.


Hypostress is a lack of stress that causes under-stimulation, resulting in boredom, restlessness, and demotivation. 

It’s not the same as recreation (time for relaxation after the period of work).


Hyper stress is the state of being overloaded with work; high quantities of stress can beget fear occurrences, frustration, and extreme responses.

Why Does One Feel Stressed?

Feeling Overworked

If you expect to do everything perfectly all of the time, you’ll be stressed out when things don’t go as planned.

Significant Life Changes

Any major life transition, even a pleasant event like a wedding or a job promotion, may be stressful. More negative situations, such as a divorce, a significant financial setback, or personal loss, can be massive sources of stress.

Experiencing Dilemma

A dilemma could be a dispute, a problem, or a circumstance with two different outcomes. If you stand up against them, an individual either gets to choose between two great consequences or second to chose between two terrible choices.

Not having little or any control over Situation

When you hear about the possibility of global warming, natural disasters, and toxic chemicals on the news regularly, it might make you feel concerned, especially if you think you have no power to stop them.

Too many Obligation

When one takes on more than what they can handle, the person feels stressed.

Not enough work or activities to perform

When people are bored and frustrated because they have no task to perform, they become restless, causing stress.

What Happens When One Experiences Stress?

Stress Managment

When any changes occur within the body, stress could be a traditional reaction that causes physical, emotional, and psychological responses in the human body.

Final Thoughts

It is normal and healthy to experience stress from time to time. Long-term stress, on the other hand, can cause physical, mental, and behavioral changes.

We can do yoga, meditation, painting, and other simple techniques to relieve and manage stress. However, if you’re feeling overwhelmed, talk to someone. It helps a lot.
