I’m Freaking Out, Man.
Thanksgiving is coming up and we’re all pumped to go home, see our families, and grub out on some home-cooked food. I know I am at least.
But once this unflustered break comes to an end most of us will start migrating towards the library and make up for a lot of lost alone time with our textbooks. This is because we have finals. Our finals bring on a lot of unwanted but somewhat necessary stress, and sometimes this stress can make or break us.
I found this article that talks about the physical and emotional consequences stress has on us and the toll it can take on your body over a long period of time. The article actually goes on to say that research has found the more bad things that happen in your life, the worse you become at dealing with adversity, which is pretty depressing.
So what do you think? What kind of physical and emotional toll does stress take on you? Do you think stress has more positive or negative effects on a person? And do you really think that the amount of bad things in someone’s life hinders their ability to recover from them?
