While stress has got a lot of negative consequences, short term stress can improve your performance (Menkes, 2011). Yet, this same stress does not help much if you are already anxious (Chicago 2011). However, it can also lead to unpleasant sensations such as an increased heart rate, or stomach pains (Stress.org n.d.). On the long term, the increase blood pressure and heart rate can increase wear on your blood vessels, which in turn can sometimes lead to a slightly increased chance at cardiovascular problems. (Collingwood 2016). In any case, stress is usually not a very nice feeling, so knowing a bit more about it might help you deal with stress in your life.
