Not chronic stress - or the kind of stress that keeps going and going and going and gaining in intensity.

“In small doses, however, experts say stress can actually have some positive effects. Moderate levels of daily, manageable stress — also known as ‘eustress’ — may help protect against oxidative damage, which is linked to aging and disease, a 2013 study published in Psychoneuroendocrinology found.”

  1. Stress enhances motivation
