Stress is a key biological function designed for survival. Stress has many positive and negative effects in modern day life. Stress increases alertness and focus motivating us for optimal performance, however if our stress hormones are not turned off or persist in unnecessary situations stress can turn to distress, and mental health issues can arise.
