    There’s actually nothing wrong with being stressed. We have all been there. It’s kind of an ordinary thing now.

    We usually get stressed when we have a problem, a lot of things to do but little time, or a lot of bills to pay, right?

    According to Ted of TED-Ed, stress isn’t a bad thing especially when you use it to be productive, but chronic stress is a different thing.
