Almost inevitable consequence of any conflict — stress. Its unpleasant symptoms (irritability, inability to concentrate, and then fatigue and unreasoning, etc.) appear instantly and are visible to the naked eye.

The word "stress" in English means "power." In scientific use the term introduced in 1936 by the Canadian physiologist Hans Selye developed a general concept of stress as an adaptive response of the body to the effects of extreme factors. The extraordinary popularity of both the concept and the concept of "stress" has arisen due to the fact that they help to easily explain many of the phenomena of our daily lives: response to emerging challenges, conflicts and unexpected events.

The classic definition of Selye, stress — is a non-specific response of the body to which the claim. This response is the voltage of the body, aimed at overcoming the difficulties encountered and the adaptation to increased requirements.

Any stress, there are three phases:

1) reaction anxiety, which manifests itself in the urgent mobilization of defense forces and resources of the body;

2) the phase of resistance, allowing the body to cope with the recalled stress effects;

3) the phase of exhaustion, if too prolonged and too intense battle reduces the adaptive capacity of the organism.

Stress state is a biochemical reaction associated with the release of adrenaline. Its physiological significance — instant mobilization of all the forces of the body needed to fight the enemy or escape from it. But the modern man, in contrast to the primitive, not that often solves its problems through physical force or fast running. That circulate our blood is not found use hormones that excite the body and do not give calm the nervous system. In this stressful condition is not dangerous in itself, but because it is able to provoke a whole bunch of organic disorders as cardiovascular, allergic, immune and other diseases. Not to mention the fact that human performance drops dramatically, his life and creative activity. Causeless like lethargy, passivity, insomnia or not giving rest sleep, irritability, resentment over the world — the typical symptoms of stress. This naturally raises the question: is it possible to do anything about it all? Is it possible to reduce the stress?

Unfortunately, stress can not be avoided in principle. It is a mechanism of adaptation to the environment. Stress can not only lower, but also enhance the body's resistance to negative factors. For breeding of polar functions there is a concept of stress and distress.

Stress — this voltage, mobilizing, activating organism to deal with the source of negative emotions;

distress — this excessive stress that reduces the body's ability to respond adequately to the demands of the environment.

Thus, to avoid stress at all — wrong policy. As well as the search for them on the head on purpose.
