Stress and Behavoir

Studies suggest that the inability to adapt to stress is associated with the onset of depression or anxiety.

Some evidence suggests that the repeated release of stress hormones produces hyperactivity in the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) system, and disrupts normal levels of serotonin, the brain chemical that is critical for feelings of well-being. Some people appear to be more at risk for an overactive HPA system under psychological disorders, including those with personality traits that cause perfectionism. On a more obvious level, stress reduces quality of life by affecting feelings of pleasure and accomplishment. In addition, relationships are often threatened in times of stress.

Oxidative stress reflects an imbalance between the systemic manifestation of reactive oxygen species and a biological system's ability to readily detoxify the reactive intermediates or to repair the resulting damage. Disturbances in the normal redox state of cells can cause toxic effects through the production of peroxides and free radicals that damage all components of the cell, including proteins, lipids, and DNA.
