What Is Stress???

Stress is a feeling that is created when we react to certain events, its the body's way of preparing itself to deal with a tough situation. But there are good and bad types of stress. The good kind of stress is called Eustress(short term), like when you get really nervous right before a sports event or going to give a speech to a crowd. Those are all good things that you get stress about for just a little bit. And then there is bad kind of stress which is called Distress(long term), this is when you would be like preparing for a test or moving to a new school or house.
