Stress, stress and more stress

As someone who doesn't handle stress well at all, I found this article on how the body reacts and deals with stress to be quite enlightening. I have read similar articles before, but this one seemed to provide a much clear presentation.

Learn How The Brain Handles Stress

Over at The Franklin Institute Online they've got some great resources about the brain and how we handle stress. It's no surprise stress can do some real damage:

A chronic overreaction to stress overloads the brain with powerful hormones that are intended only for short-term duty in emergency situations. Their cumulative effect damages and kills brain cells.

Stress isn't all bad though and a little understanding can go along way when it comes to managing a healthy stress level.
