Abstract:The article reveals the anatomy of mental and physical stress and suggests some ways to relief from stress. Scientists differentiate between acute stress and chronic stress. Acute stress evokes physical and emotional responses that activate the body and mind to deal with an immediate threat. When the threat passes, the reactions subside. Chronic stress evokes similar responses, usually at a lower intensity, but keeps repeating them day after day without respite. One of the best stress busters is yoga. It directly counteracts both the physiological and psychological components of stress.
