Stress. It makes your heart pound, your breathing quicken and your forehead sweat. But while stress has been made into a public health enemy, new research suggests that stress may only be bad for you if you believe that to be the case. Psychologist Kelly McGonigal urges us to see stress as a positive, and introduces us to an unsung mechanism for stress reduction: reaching out to others.

  10. Why are people hate me because I wanna be happier without stress. I I’m very irritated by the thoughts of the other people perception of me and it’s not good; I see I have problems mentally but I do not deserve to be laugh at and think most people do not react to the world under stress, I’m seeking help and when I do things that I need to to do to be a better humming I’m be told that I will be killed if I react in the way I once did I was wrong and I don’t want or need to live with the truth anymore what shouldn’t or should I do I don’t wanna live this way I want change? Marquis Wilson the artist

  11. Stress is harmful to the body and the brain. Tons of research shows that. As McGonigal says, our thinking/beliefs/emotions to stressful situations can keep us from meeting the stress in healthy ways. Will take more effort than just thinking positively (can't change your feelings by thinking). Still very helpful to reduce stress in your life.

    There's a flaw in her conclusion: Correlation does not imply causation: perhaps people who believed stress was harmful could feel stress harming them, that's why they got that belief. While people who didn't feel stress harming them didn't believe it. So the believers were actually harmed and died. So it's not the belief that killed them, but the stress and their bodies that are harmed by stress. So changing your belief might actually bring you more harm, because if you have a body that is harmed by stress and doesn't believe stress is harming you, you'll allow yourself to suffer more stress and die faster

  16. What if

    People with most stress tends to view stress as harmful

    So stress is still a killer
