Emotional stress is a complex interplay of physiological and psychological responses that can lead to the development of anxiety. It involves the body’s "fight or flight" response, which releases stress hormones like cortisol and adrenaline. The brain plays a critical role in this response, detecting potential threats and sending distress signals to the hypothalamus. Chronic stress can interfere with normal bodily functions, leading to fatigue, disrupted sleep patterns, and impaired cognitive function. Prolonged emotional stress can influence an individual’s emotions, leading to heightened feelings of unease, worry, and apprehension. Chronic stress can also affect cognitive processes, leading to negative cognitive bias and the development of anxiety disorders. The anticipation of stress or anxiety-inducing situations can trigger the stress response, reinforcing anxious feelings. Unresolved emotional stress can lead to anxiety disorders, impacting an individual’s quality of life.
