Stress is the response that all living beings have in face of events that present as real (being eaten or attacked) or symbolic (watch distressing images on the TV) that threaten them. The latter is only a threat to humans as no animal suffers stress when faced with the statue of its predator.
Stress is a short-lived response and prepares the body-mind unit to be safe either by fighting danger or fleeing from it.Once safe from danger, stress disappears and repair mechanisms come into play to recover the damage caused by stress. As you can see, stress is
thus a short-term situation.
In nature, the stress suffered from the animal quickly disappears as it feels safe from danger without any further significance.
When it comes to humans, however, life in society means that stress cannot dealt with the same way. As an example, a boss can make his employee feel stressed out. The latter simply cannot fight him off due to the risk of being fired, it cannot flee either because he would lose his job. So, what to do? Usually nothing. Body and mind unit which automatically prepares to fight or flee freezes. All the chemical substances that give to the muscles the strength and nutrients are not burnt out in the process become a cause of illness.
The sum of our undealt with stresses create lead to even more stress causing aches and pains and at times, illnesses. There are other ways to lessen the stress produced by the lack of action in face of fight or flight response; meditation is one of them along with many other practices of Eastern origin.
There have been many epidemics and plagues in the history of human kind, although today’s man faces stress as the new culprit for several deceases affecting mind and body. Furthermore, modern society is facing yet more health challenges such obesity, diabetes, hypertension, immune disorders, gastritis, muscle stiffness, reproductive problems, phobias, panic attacks, anxiety and other psychiatric pathologies.
