Stress management and revitalization
Stress is the mechanism of our body responing to any type of insecurity or threat. When you feel the danger – whether that is real or imaginary – the body’s defense begins to enter the whole organism in a higher state through a rapid, automatic process known as the “stress response” reaction.
The response to stress is how the body protects you. When you work, it helps you stay focused, energetic and attentive. In emergencies, stress can save your life – giving you more strength to defend yourself.
