A limited amount of stress can actually be beneficial. Situations and circumstances like a deadline, or a sports competition can boost the body in constructive and positive ways.

In less extreme situations, the body and brain produce adrenaline, and the heart provides more blood, the brain is sharper and the body releases stress hormones, which can be beneficial in coping up and handling those situations.

The American Psychological Association (APA) says that the most common causes of stress (in the US) are finance, work, and family-related and that they affect more of the younger generations.

Stress is a state of mental tension or emotional strain due to adverse or demanding circumstances, events, and situations.
