Meaningful stress is challenging stress

A 40-year-long study shows that people who experienced a moderate (4-7) amount of traumatic events rated their life satisfaction the highest.

One may conclude that stressful events alone are not enough to deteriorate us and the meaning we assign to those events matters.

Stressing about stress is meaningless, driving us towards a downwards spiral, while, for example, stressing about raising a child is meaningful.
