How do we manage stress? Before we get to that, first we need to understand what stress is all about.

It is exhausting

When we are under stress, our body releases cortisol that came from our adrenal glands. Ever heard of adrenaline? Whenever we are in a tight situation our body is pumped up to overcome that situation by giving us a boost. So we are in flight mode that means we are using more energy more than we used to but after that our body tires out easily, leaving us physically drained. How much more if we perceive more stress in our coming days? Our body will be so stressed to the point of breaking down.
