Is all stress bad?

Stress is a powerful word. Just by reading it, you can feel weird pinches in your stomach. Especially if you had some bad experiences with it before.

But, is all stress bad? What about the stress that pushes you to do something, or be a better person? It can not be a bad one right?

I made some research, and learned a new word:

Eustress
a positive form of stress having a beneficial effect on health, motivation, performance, and emotional well-being.

It makes sense now.

Not all stress is bad. We want to avoid stress, but we need more eustress in our life 🙂
