Everybody would have thought that life can be stressful.
Many people wants to get rid of their stress.
But is the stress a completely BAD thing?
Do we have to struggle against the stress all the time?
Do you have a positive image of the stress? Well, I do. I think we need the stress to some extent.
A psychologist experimented what happens if people have to be in the no-stress situation. After 80 to 90 hours, the subjects lost their power of resistance to the external stimulus. They had a problem with their thermoregulation. And they suffered from a groundless imagination, become suggestible. They couldn't stand still when they were said "You cannot stand!"
Dr.Yerkers-Ddson's experiment showed that the stress shouldn't be too less or too much. The proper amount of stress can lead the best performance.
To begin with, the stress is a necessary react to survive for animals (and for primitive man). Their stress is caused when they must run away from enemies or when they lash on its prey. It raises their heart rate, blood pressure, breathing rate, and the pupils of the eyes expand, the body temperature rises...
That is to say, the stress is the function so as to protect your life, to fight, to escape from the danger. Some people say the animals which have a certain stress (it doesn't mean very stressful situation) even can live longer than the animals with no stress!
Anyway, the life without any stress... sounds very boring, isn't it?!
The stress is spice of life, I think :) Of course I hate the stressful life, though!
One's impression of the stress can be effect on his body reacting to the stress.
