Ask somebody about stress, and you're likely to hear an outpouring about all the bad things that cause it -- and the bad things that result. But if you ask a biologist, you'll hear that stress can be good.

A controlled degree of stress stimulates us, without any stimulation life would be pretty awful.

We only need stress hormones in times of danger - fight or flight - no more,
life is happy & peaceful without it.

No stress is good, when we feel stress will also bad feelings to turn out as uncertainty inadequacy and feelings of insecurity.
When we are free from the stress brought feelings that peace, security, safety and desire and then we can start to get creative

Since, we know that life is full of stress, it's obviously, ridiculous to try and ignore it.
It's better to learn to deal with it.
