Stress is a natural emotion that every human being experiences. Without stress, What force us to study for a test, Complete homework, Or train for a sporting event? Stress pushes us to our limits and enables to show off our full potential. A study at the University of California, Showed that stress boosts the production of neurons that improves performance. Stress has also been found by Stanford University to boost our immune system which results in a healthier lifestyle.

Stress has a lot more negative impacts than positive. The research of neuroscience website by Lupien, S states that glucocorticoids produced by stress can change brain behaviour. The body may suffer from inefficiency because stress heightens the muscles for a flight/fight response, This then causes neglect on important organs throughout the body such as your liver. With this neglect the organs can develop many problems some with could threaten your life.

Although people may think that stress is bad for our health and it can affect our lifestyle, That doesn't mean that we should rule it out completely. Stress may seem like an annoying feeling that you just want to get rid of, However, If we are feeling this emotion so strongly and so often then doesn't that say something? I believe it does, I also believe that stress plays an important factor in the decisions that we make and the actions that we take.

I understand that stress "improves" somethings but is it worth the negative effects on your health. Your muscles tense up to prevent injury which is irrelevant if the stress is meant to positively help you perform test or anything not involving physical activity. But if your constantly stress your body doesn"t have the chance to relax your muscles afterwards, Tight muscles cause headaches, Back and shoulder pain, And body aches. I just don"t want stress encourage because it can be negative.
