Deepak Chopra defined stress as, “the accumulation of normal and abnormal pressures of daily living that test the individual’s ability to cope.”.
Chopra also stated that stress is “a major cause of disease and even death”.
Resilience and perseverence in the face of stressors can help individuals to build confidence.
Appropriate stress helps an individual to adapt and grow as a person.
Inappropriate stress, however, serves no useful purpose and may result in disease.
