It spreads like a virus! Stress is contagious, here's what is recommended

Do nervous people make us nervous too? Yes, and science already says this: stress is contagious. The anxious behavior of a family member, a colleague at work, or even a stranger on the street, can be transmitted to others just like a virus, especially to empathic people, that is, they perceive very quickly the feelings and state of mind of others. others.

This has been proven in a study by the Max Planck Institute in Leipzig and the University of Dresden in Germany. The researchers forced some volunteers to observe other people, while the latter were subjected to stressful psychological situations.

They then measured their cortisol levels. The stress hormone was increased by 26 percent in the observers. And in case there was an intimate relationship with the person under pressure, the percentage of cases in which there was an increase in the hormone increased to 40 percent.

Why? This "viral" effect of stress occurs because of empathy, which leads to identification with what the stressed person is experiencing. And this is true even when the latter is seen in a video. According to the researchers, it was also found that suspenseful movies and TV shows can increase the stress levels of the viewers.

What is the solution?
In such cases the solution is more than obvious: avoid meetings (even for a long time if possible) with people who are going through a stressful period. However, according to a study, if 2 stressed people talk to each other, they can relax.

In a study by the USC Marshall School of Business in the United States, 52 students who had to face a very stressful test were invited to face each other. And after they shared all their concerns, it was seen that their cortisol levels dropped significantly.
