What causes stress in our body?
Of course, stress can also be positive in that we have a run or work our way through a task quickly and at full speed. In this case, stress increases lower performance. And once we have successfully mastered a task, our self-confidence increases. So stress also has its good sides. We like to say: “I just work better under pressure”.
And there is a simple reason for that. Because your body goes into a different mode in stressful situations. One of the reasons for this is the stress hormone cortisol, which is released by the adrenal cortex.

The blood pressure goes up and so does the pulse. The body is now ready to react quickly and effectively. A very simple survival trick.
