Balance Life Roles & Stress
Transcript of Balance Life Roles & Stress
In fact, a little bit of stress is good. Most of us couldn't push ourselves to do well at things--sports, music, dance,
work, school--without feeling the pressure of wanting to do well.
Without the stress caused by a deadline, most of us also wouldn't be able to finish projects or get to work or school on time.
