I don’t run away from a challenge because I am afraid. Instead, I run towards it because the only way to escape fear is to trample it beneath your foot. -Nadia Comaneci
Life can be stressful. Sometimes it can feel like too much to take. Believe me, I know that feeling too.
It makes you want to run away, crawl under a blanket and hide.
But did you know that stress, in small measure, can actually make you stronger and help you deal with stress in the future? Scientific American MIND editor Ingrid Wickelgren explains.
Stress Gives You Strength
The [tweetable]next time you feel stress coming, don’t run. Face it head on and it will make you stronger.[/tweetable]
With every stressful situation you survive (and you will survive them all) you’ll become better prepared for dealing with stress the next time it comes around.
And it will come.
