All of us feel stress at some point in our lives. Actually, some measure of pressure is beneficial to propel us and increase our performance, which is referred to as Eu – Stress.
“Eustress occurs when the gap between what one has and what one wants is slightly pushed, but not overwhelmed. The goal is not too far out of reach but is still slightly more than one can handle. This fosters challenge and motivation since the goal is in sight. The function of the challenge is to motivate a person toward improvement and a goal. Challenge is an opportunity-related emotion that allows people to achieve unmet goals. Eustress is indicated by hope and active engagement. Eustress has a significantly positive correlation with life satisfaction and hope.”- Wikipedia

Jaw, neck, shoulders, and head are the most affected areas that usually end up as storehouses of tension in the body.
When you feel stressful, try doing gentle neck rolls, shoulder rolls, facial exercises, and deep breathing, you would instantly feel better.
