The matter of fact is "stress is not necessarily something bad”. It is said that you perform better under stress. It all depends on how you take it. The stress of exhilarating, creative successful work is beneficial, while that of failure, humiliation or infection is detrimental. In fact, the simple realization that you’re in control of your life is the foundation of Stress Management.

Don’t be serious, be sincere”.
