Managing Stress Workbook — Calm Blog
Our bodies are designed for stress (but, not too much).
Stress is inevitable and a part of our everyday lives. In fact, half of our autonomic nervous system, known as the Sympathetic Nervous System (famous for activating our “fight or flight” response), is designed to support us in the daily activities that cause us stress. While the other half, the Parasympathetic Nervous System (responsible for promoting our “rest and digest” response), is designed to help us to recover from the stressors of our daily life.
