Stress isn’t always a bad thing; it can be handy for a burst of extra energy and focus, like when you’re playing a competitive sport or have to speak in public. But when it’s continuous, it actually begins to change your brain. Madhumita Murgia shows how chronic stress can affect brain size, its structure, and how it functions, right down to the level of your genes.

Lesson by Madhumita Murgia, animation by Andrew Zimbelman.

Sushant Saurabh says:

I have horrible GERD, anxiety, Gastroparesis, IBS -C, gastritis, fibromyalgia, Anxiety , no interest in anything and 24×7 my mind is on the my horrible symptoms .
Guess what? nothing is found in the medical test just inflammation in stomach. And all these new research is saying is *phycosomatic * .
What is more worse is when your mind start thinking How you were living healthy and happy before all this came into your life and is not getting out.
I know the saying "Happiness is choice" . But how you will remain happy if your own body is going through this much pain.

Marcelina Zawada says:

Walczę ze stresem od kilku lat. Póki co sama próbuje go w jakimś stopniu 'okiełznać' co nie jest łatwe. Pomaga regulacja medycja a przede wszystkim aktywnosc fizyczna. Staram sie też dbac o mikrobiote stosujac probiotyki lub psychobiotyki sanprobi stress, bo jak pokazują badania rozregulowany mikrobiom moze byc przyczyną nadmiernego napiecia

I normally felt stressed whenever there an important exams happening, because enable to get good grades I would need to think carefully in every question and to be able to focus or else my life wouldn’t be easy for my academic performance so I would need to remember some important additional subjects I done to do well in those exam without being to stressful

BaruchJW says:

I want to share three tips that help me deal with stress myself.

* Stress can cause anxiety. So try this: First, recognize that some stress is inevitable. Fretting over things you cannot prevent increases your stress. Second, understand that quite often things do not turn out the way we may fear they will.

* Be modest, set reasonable standards, and know both your limitations and those of others. When you do this, you will reduce stress all around and even encourage greater success. Also, keep a sense of humor. When you laugh​—even when something goes wrong—​you relieve tension and brighten your mood.

* play chess and solve chess puzzles.
If you want to play with me, write me, I will be very happy!
