Stress is a physical, mental, or emotional process that initiates the "fight or flight" response. This response involves a complex combination of neurological, physiological, and chemical responses. There is often an external component of stress (a stressor from the environment or situation) and an internal component of stress (one's subjective response to the stressor).
