Under Pressure: The Science of Stress
Did you know that everyone experiences stress? Not only people but animals too. There are many types of stress and guess what: not all stress is bad. There are scientists who have made their whole careers learning about stress, how it affects people and how people can learn to manage it better. Under Pressure: The Science of Stress starts off by explaining the basic type of stress: fight or flight. This is a type of stress that people don’t have much control over. If your body is exposed to something scary or shocking a part of your brain takes over and causes automatic responses. The book also talks about different types of stress like PTSD.
The best part of this book is that along with telling about the science behind stress and all the different research that was done on stress it also tells about the research that has been done to help people deal with stress. There was a lot of advice on ways to help your body deal with stress which I found useful, especially when they spoke about breathing techniques and getting the right kind of sleep.
