Stress is activated by anxiety, injustices and pressure. It is when a person perceives that they have too little time, energy, skill and resources to meet the demands of the situation. This then activates the fight/flight system releasing adrenaline, norepinephrine and cortisol. Every person has the ability to sustain pressure for a limited period of time but constant stress has significant impact on a person’s physical and emotional health. Traumatic life experiences can lead to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Significant loss and injustice can lead to a depressed state. Defining life events leave people hurt, confused and often emotionally handicapped. They need to go on a journey of healing.
