What is it?

Stress is a feeling that is created when we react to certain events. The reaction is the way the body prepares itself for tough situations.

Good OR Bad?

Stress isn't all bad. There is good stress too. When you worry about things, you might think you're stressed out. But it could be good. Worrying about things that ARE necessary to get you ready for a situation, can be good. Also, good stress can protect us from tougher situations.
