Anyone knows the difference? To me physical stress is the normal stress that we feel when we get symptoms like high pulse and sweating. Mental stress to me is a vague term that doesn't really have a definition. However recently I was talking with a psychologist and she was talking about mental stress and mentioned stressors. Those however are part of physical stress from what I know. So anyone knows the full story? What is the difference between physical and mental stress? I googled around but there doesn't seem to be some trustful resource with clear definitions about these two.
