Stress And Its Consequence

Stress can be defined as any type of change that causes physical, emotional, or psychological strain. Stress is your body's response to anything that requires attention or action. Stress can be short-term or long-term. Both can lead to a variety of symptoms, but chronic stress can take a serious toll on the body over time and have long-lasting health effects. Some common signs of stress include,

1.Changes in mood
2.Clammy or sweaty palms
3.Decreased sex drive
5.Difficulty sleeping.
6.Digestive problems
8.Feeling anxious
9.Frequent sickness
10.Grinding teeth
11.Headaches etc.

The physical consequences of stress.
Stress has, despite its being a psychological phenomenon, many physical consequences. Examples include heart palpitations, aching muscles, tension headaches.  This is caused by the hormone cortisol which is secreted during stress. Previous consequences are linked to the physical response to this hormone. In case of long-term stress, these symptoms will therefore appear. Furthermore, it will influence other functions. These include memory, focus, and sleep. Stress makes it so that we have memory issues, problems focusing, and that we have a hard time falling asleep/staying asleep. These, in turn, have negative effects on our body.

The psychological consequences of stress.
Stress in itself is a psychological phenomenon. But, long-term stress can still lead to worse psychological symptoms, such as burnout or depression. If stress is long-term, you will become physically and psychologically exhausted. You continuously worry, do not sleep enough, which causes even more stress. This can become too much after a while, and this is one way in which stress can cause a burnout. Something else that often is found in stress, is the existence of somber moods and crying spells. With increased stress, these spells can worsen, and after a while, depression could be developed.

While the human race is locked inside the house to fight COVID 19, a pandemic which held the entire world hostage in unprecedented and unparalleled manners, while one is even debarred to visit neighborhood milk booth and one is prohibited to cross over to another district in a same state, every piece of literary work is an expression of paranoia in one way or other. View of shillong from Shillong Peak Nation is facing most harsh form of lockdown, and consequent toll on human, psychological as well as physiological, is pushing to the limit of tolerance. At this crossroad in life, picturesque lush green meadow, hills covered with pine trees, fresh air and country roads driven me nostalgic and take me far away from new normal, every time I remembered of Shillong. ‘Scotland of India’ title it rightfully defended perched in East Khasi Hill district of Meghalaya, Shillong lies at north eastern corner on Indian Map.

Pandemic from the eyes of a Villager
