The effects of Stress on Your Body

The response in the human’s body to many changes that requires a physical, mental or emotional adjustment is called stress. This reaction is very common in our daily life because of the different events that happen to us or in our environment.
According to the author stress can be positive or negative, leading good or bad consequences in our behavior.
I think that we have the power to make the stress positive, changing our mind to a much challenging and successful attitude.

Our body was specially made to lived stress and react to it; trying to make it positive and maintaining us prepared to avoid danger. When a person lived many challenges without being relaxed between them, the stress becomes negative. This condition can lead to a negative stress reaction called distress. Distress can damage our internal balance making headaches, stomachaches, high blood pressure, and other problems.
Stress also becomes harmful when people use different substances like alcohol or drugs to relieved it because these substances caused more stress.

I totally agree with the author when he says that there is a positive and a negative stress. I think in my family they manage stress well because they are very responsible and they seem to have everything planed. On the other hand, I have a friend who manage stress very bad, because she is always worried and stress out; I remember that in high school she was always angry because “of the homework we have for tomorrow”. I think that is a really unhealthy way to manage stress, because as a result, my friend was always sick.
I also have an aunt that suffers of ulcers because she have never anything under control, she is always worried about work, or about her son; he solution for those people is to have some time alone, and reflect on the way they can be better. They have to learn how to transform stress in a positive one, making it a challenge and no an excuse to be unfriendly.
Personally I think that I manage stress well, because I don’t like to leave thinks for last hour; to be a person who have most of the work things planned and under control is always good, and I hope not to change in my future when I’ll work. =)
