I believe that Stress can have many positive effects both for your mental and physical health. Stress motivates people to do things that they know they have to do even though they are difficult. It has many mental positive effects such as boosting your brain power by boosting the production of neurons that improves performance and improving your brain strength so you will be better at managing your stress next time you are in a stressful situation. Some of the physical positive effects are that it can enhance child development if the stress is good stress, The children would be more developed and would have more problem solving skills as they grow up than the children born without stress. Stress helps give us a lower risk of early death in life and improves short term immunity. Studies show that it also increases you your senses to avoid physically stressful situations (such as jumping away from a moving car).

To start of, I will express stress as a state. Though stress has never been given a definition that all people agree with, The most relevant meaning for the word is; the physical, Mental, Or emotional strain or tension that alters one"s ability to function properly. In some instances, Stress is thought to motivate one to complete challenges or desired tasks. Whilst the satisfaction of finishing a task is quite pleasing, This does not disregard the feeling of nervousness. Stress causes physical pains like headaches, Body aches and even fatigue, It also causes behavioural and emotional habits and problems like constant anger outbursts, Alters in eating pattern, Anxiety, Worry, Pressure, Irritability and overwhelmed feeling. All these outcomes somewhat assist to gaining more stress because of the extra attention needed to one"s well being. Statistics show that 16% of Australians (that suffer from stress) report that is majorly from study and homework load.

Although my opponent makes great points about the negative effects of stress as she said there are many different definitions some of which say that stress is a positive thing not a negative thing. The physical reactions that she mentioned like headaches and fatigue only occur when the stress cannot be managed even though stress can be easily managed by doing simple exercises that will help future development and problem solving skills. Although the feeling of being nervous to some is uncomfortable this can also be easily channeled to excitement. All of these habits such as anger outbursts and eating habits are not entirely linked to stress, When managed correctly, Stress is a stimulant for doing whatever it is that needs to be done. Homework and work load are difficult to manage but the stress that is endured is essential to success in life. If you develop organisational skills from a young age then the stress that comes from this workload will be much lesser and can even be avoided.

My next argument is to show that whilst stress is said to motivate themselves to get things done, This can also later amount to future stress and rushing to get other tasks done. To further explain, If one is rushing to complete many tasks in a set time period this potentially lead to inaccuracy and poorly done work. It is evident that my opponent"s point made; "Studies show that it also increases you your senses to avoid physically stressful situations, " also hints that you need to endure stressful situations in order to improve one"s reflexes. Study shows that 35 percent of Australians report having a significant level of distress in their lives. Stress also results in bad outcomes like bad eating habits, Overreacting, Sadness and irritability on the human body. To conclude, Whilst my opponent made good points on how stress can have positive effects, Bad stress seems to outweigh the good kind of stress, Leading to future or current mental health issues.
