Stress generally refers to ‘events or events that cause unbearable pressure and distress that adversely affect the health of the body and mind’. Continuous stress reduces the function of the autonomic nervous system that maintains homeostasis in our body. The autonomic nervous system is the nervous system that controls the heartbeat, control of breathing, and movement of the gastrointestinal tract. Continued stress can cause imbalances in the autonomic nervous system, which can lead to indigestion, sleep disorders, depression, and memory loss.

The balance of the autonomic nervous system can be checked by examining minute changes in heartbeat through a stress test. This will help you understand the effects of accumulated excessive stress on your body and mind.

◇ Stress test results

– Normal findings: autonomic nervous system health
· Heart rate variability: large and complex

“The changes in heart rate are large and complex.”
The large and complex changes in heart rate mean that the autonomic nervous system is activated. It can be said that the autonomic nervous system is in a balanced, healthy state.

– Abnormal findings: excessive stress
· Heart rate variation: small and simple


“The change in heart rate is small and simple.”

If the change in heart rate is small and simple, it means that the autonomic nervous system is not sufficiently activated. It can be said that it is a state in which it is difficult to adapt to the changing environment due to excessive stress.
