What caused your stress???
The possible answers may fall under the following category,(if not one among the below.. congrats you are out of box!!)

Effects of Stress:
Stress is highly related to the physical well being, it is important to notice your physical changes when you undergo stress because stress affects almost all the parts of your body!!! worse than you ever thought!! let us have a look on few health problems caused by stress,
Do not think i am gonna take medical lectures!!!
The idea behind briefing the medical disorders is to tell you how mischief you are doing to your health!!
Your central nervous system (CNS) is in charge of your “fight or flight” response. In your brain, the hypothalamus gets the ball rolling, telling your adrenal glands to release the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol. These hormones rev up your heartbeat and send blood rushing to the areas that need it most in an emergency, such as your muscles, heart, and other important organs.
When the perceived fear is gone, the hypothalamus should tell all systems to go back to normal. If the CNS fails to return to normal, or if the stressor doesn’t go away, the response will continue.
Respiratory and cardiovascular systems
As a result, frequent or chronic stress will make your heart work too hard for too long. When your blood pressure rises, so do your risks for having a stroke or heart attack.
The rush of hormones, rapid breathing, and increased heart rate can also upset your digestive system. You’re more likely to have heartburn or acid reflux thanks to an increase in stomach acid. Stress doesn’t cause ulcers (a bacterium called H. pylori often does), but it can increase your risk for them and cause existing ulcers to act up.
Stress can also affect the way food moves through your body, leading to diarrhea or constipation. You might also experience nausea, vomiting, or a stomachache.

Nothing will affect you when you have the strong mind!!!
A strong mind is built from FEEDING it with positive thoughts and learning new things every day. Not every now and then. Not for a little while, EVERY SINGLE DAY.
A strong mind is built with daily gratitude. When you are grateful for everything you DO have, you have no room for negativity, no room for doubt or anxiety.
A strong mind is built with GOALS. GOALS that give you a reason to get out of bed and attack the day. A strong mind is built from knowing YOU are responsible for your life. Your results. Your success and your failures.
GROWTH is the key to life. If you are GROWING and challenging yourself every day you’ll lead a happy life, if you’re not, you will suffer.
The mind is like a muscle, it get’s stronger when you embrace challenges. When you push it to it’s limits. When you learn what works and apply that to your life.
A strong mind is one that surrounds itself with the right people. A strong mind does not let OPINIONS alter their course in life. They follow their own path, no matter what.
