Stress Can Help You Live Longer

StressOct 08, 05

According to research from the US, stress can be good for you. Bursts of short-term stress, such as the kind you get before an interview, can help you live longer and reduce your chances of developing arthritis, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.

This type of stress triggers the release of protective proteins in your body that help repair cells, and it also boosts your immune system.

Of course, prolonged stress, such as always staying late at work or constant worrying, is definitely not good for you and it has been linked with ulcers, heart disease and high blood pressure - and it encourages you to engage in bad habits like smoking, drinking and eating badly.
