Stress is a result of natural forces from the outside world affecting the individual. The individual responds to stress in ways that affect the then as well as their environment. It includes a state of alarm and adrenaline hormone production, short-term resistance as a coping mechanism, and exhaustion.
Common stress symptoms include irritability, muscular tension, aches, pain, stiffness, inability to concentrate and a variety of physical reactions, such as headaches and elevated heart rate. In general, stress is related to both external and internal factors. External factors include the physical environment, including your job, your relationships with others, your home, and all the situations, challenges, difficulties, and expectations you're confronted with on a daily basis. Internal factors determine your body's ability to respond to, and deal with, the external stress-inducing factors. One of the common stresses in London is job stress or work stress. A little pressure is good and helps to keep us motivated but too much can lead to stress, which can affect your health and performance.
