Can you cope with stress as well as you used to? For many folks, it gets harder and harder these days. In practice, stress belongs to a physiological phenomenon that can be observed and measured rather than a vague feeling of being exhausted, anxious or overwhelmed.
When you are under physical, mental or emotional stress, your body releases a complex mix of hormones and chemicals. Such release increases the risks for chronic disease, to which the body has been more vulnerable after a lifetime of wear and tear.
Thankfully data collected by your KOPSET smartwatch regarding self-monitoring can scientifically evaluate your daily physical state. The lower the data, the more active the body functions. Otherwise, it demonstrates the body is in a high-loaded state and requires more rest for recovery.
Nevertheless stress is not necessarily adverse. Positive stress helps you further concentrate on work and accomplish tasks, and high-level stress may indicate that something thrilling in your life is about to happen. Negative stress, on the other hand, triggers anxiety and discomfort, making you less energetic and hindering your performance.
Since both types of stress are inescapable, we never aim to eliminate stress but to manage it while seeking the balance between stress and recovery, followed by 5 simple tips。
