Exhaustion stage

You can’t function in perpetuity with some of the body processes being shut down. When the organism uses up all of the resources, you enter into the exhaustion phase. What happens here, your exhaustion will manifest in your mental and physical conditions – you may get burnout, depression, and weak body, including the immune system.

Cortisol can stay in a heightened state much longer than adrenaline. Whereas periodic moderate stress exposure can prove beneficial to you, being stressed longer is not. Prolonged and chronic stress that keep your cortisol levels up can be hazardous and deteriorating to your physical and mental health. It can lead to memory impairment, insomnia, chronic fatigue, and depression just to mention a few consequences of chronically high cortisol for your brain.
