What is Stress?
When we become stressed or under pressure the brain sends out a signal to your adrenal gland to produce adrenalin and cortisol.
Adrenalin is secreted into the blood stream to trigger your heart rate and lung capacity to increase and to work in harmony to pump extra blood and oxygen to your legs and arms which is preparing your body for the “fight or flight” response – its there to protect you from danger so your muscles are more responsive to do just that, fight or fly (run).
