Web Desk. Everyone faces stress in their daily lives. But there are some people who have never experienced it and surprisingly it has some negative effects on them. This was disclosed in a medical study conducted in the United States.
Research from Penn State University has shown that people who have never experienced stress have a better daily life and are less prone to chronic illnesses, but may also experience a decline in mental functioning.
According to the research, in fact, minor stress in daily life is seemingly unsatisfactory, but it can be beneficial for the brain. Researchers say that it is possible to find a solution to a problem when tensions are high.
While running a computer suddenly breaks down, as soon as you fix it immediately then facing such stress does not seem to feel good but it forces you to solve the problem, which is best for brain functions, especially with the age.
The researcher said previous research reports have shown that stress causes a number of mental problems, but new research suggests that mild stress is good for your health. He added stress is thought to be harmful, but we discovered that people who never had it may experience a decline in mental functioning.
The study involved 2,711 people and took a mental test before starting. Volunteers were then interviewed every night for 8 days and asked about their mood, chronic illness, and physical symptoms.
They were also asked about the causes of stress, such as fights with friends and family, problems at work, etc., and positive experiences.
Analyzing the data, the researchers found that people who did not experience stress during the study had a lower risk of chronic illness and a better mood throughout the day. However, their score on the mental test is low.
The researchers stated that mild stress in daily routines has been shown to be beneficial for the brain and indicates a connection to life. The study’s findings were published in the Journal Emotion, and experts say that avoiding stress is not as important as reacting to it.
