Homeostasis is the harmonious state between mind and body. The body’s instinctive response to danger, real or imagined, is to activate the fight or flight response. Continuous stressful encounters may disrupt the state of homeostasis. This will result in experiencing the symptoms of stress and anxiety.. If symptoms continue this is a sign that your body and mind are not working harmoniously as one.
Stress is the reaction of the autonomic nervous system to real or imagined danger. It is the human body's instinctive defense against attack. In the event of a threatened or actual physical attack the fight or flight mechanisms kick in and system releases adrenaline to boost the body's ability to fight off the attacker or run away quicker than normal.
Most common symptoms of stress are:
• Anxiety, panic attack, depression

• Low self esteem
• Constantly worrying and thinking negatively
