Some information about stress
Stress is a state of alert whose primary objective is to prepare us for the action and be on the alert for problems and threatening situations. The majority of doctors think that stress can be considered an intermediate state between health and disease, evolving over three stages - alarm stage, resistance stage and exhaustion stage. A balanced state of stress is therefore benign and desirable. It is reflected by a small excitement that enhances our ability to face different situations of life with a positive attitude and a healthy sense of enthusiasm and motivation.
But the same is not true when it reaches levels considered hazardous to health and becomes permanent. If the lack of any stress (shaking) in our lives keeps us under-excited, apathetic and already bored high stress and, even worse, the chronic stress pushes us to a overexcitation state of adverse effects on the body and quality of our performances (intellectual, social, etc).

Conviction in court
Serious health problems
Great mortgage or loan money problems
