Stress responses originate from one of the most primitive parts of the brain, the hypothalamus. In situations of real danger, this response is useful – but when we’re experiencing this chemical rush day in, day out, it can leave us feeling very worn-down and unhappy.
Experiencing chronic stress during childhood can have a negative effect on childrens’ emotional, social, and academic development and their future health:
• Stressed children have on average diminished educational achievement at the milestones of 7, 13, and 16.
• Children experiencing stressful situations such as divorce and bereavement have lower levels of emotional wellbeing.
• In the long term, stress can cause other mental health issues such as depression and anxiety disorders.
