White Paper Summary

We all have stress. The stress response is how our brain and body work together to overcome a challenge. This could be the routine stress of getting home from work, getting your kids to sports, and making dinner within a specific timeframe. It could be more sudden like an illness or loss of a friend or family member. Or it could be traumatic like an act of war, an assault or a natural disaster.

Sometimes we feel stress after we’ve had an argument or when we have a deadline. However, once the argument is resolved or the deadline has passed, we should feel relief. Humans are wired to solve problems or difficult situations.

What happens if the stress is constant? This is “chronic stress,” a consistent sense of feeling pressured and overwhelmed during a long period of time.
