Resistance Phase

A part of your nervous system, which is responsible for “rest-and-digest” mode gets activated to counteract the effects of stress. This is a further adaptation to a stressor.

Cortisol in this stage slowly falls, trying to reach normal levels but remains alleviated. After the initial fighting, because many organs in your body were not getting enough resources (which were all diverted to the organs which are the most used in fight-or-flight response), the nervous system tries to restore the balance and repair the body.

You may be still slightly stressed during the interview, but to a lesser extent than before, so that your body starts functioning better, your digestive system returns to normal, heartbeat slows down and breathing returns to normal.
