Stressed? Make It Work for You!

Stressed is Desserts

We are taught to “fight” stress, get rid of it and, if possible, avoid it altogether.

We all have those days, when tasks just seem to be piling up on top of you and no matter how hard you try – stress still sets in.

However, stress may not be such a bad thing.

According to the author of Raising Happiness Christine Carter, Ph.D.,

one of the quickest ways to reverse that overwhelmed feeling is to view stress as a positive thing. “Simply changing your belief and seeing your body’s response to the stress—like rising blood pressure—as something that is helping you can change the biology of your stress.” Translation? Your body won’t freak out by responding negatively to the anxiety—and neither will you.
