Chronic stress can have a number of physiological effects. For instance, the immune system can become suppressed leaving a person more vulnerable to harmful bacteria and viruses. ¬†Continuously elevated levels of cortisol, the stress hormone, can lead to cardiovascular problems and other diseases later in life. Psychological stress influenced from traumatic events can lead to depressed mood and lack of interest in social interaction. It is important for people to develop positive coping mechanisms for managing stress. Effective management of stress promotes wellness. ¬† Positive coping skills and wellness can be observed through a person’s positive attitude, sense of self-efficacy, self-esteem and their social supports.
