Types of Stress

The feeling of stress is a common one. There are two main types:

Acute Stress Disorder:

 This type can be felt when someone experiences short-term, high levels that disappear quickly and may cause them to act upon their fears by pressing brakes during driving or skiing down mountain sides which helps them control dangerous situations respectively; also occurs in new contexts exciting but stressful events because we all experience some form of acute worry at times while dealing with various issues throughout life such as work responsibilities etc.

Chronic Stress:

When a person never finds relief in their situation. This can be because they are under relentless pressure and expectations for long periods of time, with no hope left to solace them from these troubles; some types come from painful childhood memories that have been internalized over time.

The term “stress” has many meanings, but often means worrying about things outside oneself such as career or family issues rather than being concerned primarily within one’s self—this form would thus qualify as chronic instead.

Stress and your body

Your body reacts to stress by releasing hormones. These in turn make you more alert, cause your muscles to tension and increase heart rate for a short period of time until it wears off-this is how we protect ourselves from the effects that stressful situations may have on us over long periods or chronic stresses where our bodies are not able to handle them any more due their age/health condition etc. However, there comes some sacrifice: when faced with these problems often enough, eventually one will experience mood swings like anger episodes, legal difficulties such as increased crime rates associated.
