Protecting Mental Health During Periods of Sustained Stress
Mental health, a person’s psychological and emotional well-being, is defined by our ability to cope with the daily stresses of life. During periods of high or sustained stress, humans can have a hard time navigating normal life stressors. Our stress response system is designed to protect us but often turns on during non-life threatening situations, which has adverse impacts on our bodies and brains. We can optimally support ourselves when we have an understanding of how our brains and bodies operate while we are experiencing stress.
