Nowadays, all people lead a stressful lifestyle, constantly under pressure of their work, success, financial burden, everyday obligations, and so on.
It just isn’t easy to balance love, relationships, family, friends, work, hobbies, and responsibilities. This constant pressure affects the abilities and skills of the person, mood, thoughts, emotions, relationships, social life, performance at work, and much more.
In these cases, the body, that it, the hypothalamus in the brain, sends some warnings in the form of signals to the adrenal glands, via hormonal and nerve signs, in order to urge them to produce adrenaline hormones or cortisol.
Cortisol is the primary stress hormone, and it tries to help the body by suppressing the growth, reproductive, and digestive system, which are not needed in a fight or flight situation.
