Food for thought: stress
We generally perceive stress to be a bad thing, it is a sign we can’t cope with the stimulus around us, it’s negative and overwhelming. But is that true? In reality, it should be considered a state of arousal or stimulation. If we are bored then this will be low, if it is too low and we have no stimulus this can lead to depression (like, too much can lead to anxiety and depression). If we are angry, nervous, afraid or excited the level of stimulation or stress will be higher.
