Stress is unavoidable. A common belief is that stress is bad for us. This does not have to be the case. Some stress can even be beneficial and a challenge to a better performance. It’s the ongoing strain and pressure that can be harmful for our health and wellbeing. In other words: when one's resources meet the demands, stress acts as a stimulating factor that contributes to success. However, when demands exceed resources, one experiences the type of stress associated with health problems and deteriorating relationships.
