      Stress can be good when it comes in small doses and not intensively for long periods of time. It is a motivator and it also challenges you. The last thing you need is to become too complacent and stop learning or striving for more.

I found myself at that point of the stress curve when I do things I enjoy and I'm good at. An example would be when I took 2 modules within one semester in university instead of 1. (to be contd)

The motivation and challenge helps me stay on track for assignments, and also enable me to go beyond what the tutor expects of me. I felt very fulfilled everyday, seeing that I'm making progress and improving. No day felt wasted. I also got better grades for 2 modules than when I only took 1 module the previous semester."

      A little bit of stress is good as it also serve as a motivation for us to do well. Example, new job assignment.

      Yes, stress is good if it is not excessive or for prolonged period of time. It gives us the opportunity to get out of our comfort zone, to acquire new skills, and grow as a person. One example is to set personal goals to challenge ourselves. Another kind of good stress can be from simple enjoyable activities that is also a little challenging eg: learning a new hobby or plan a family overseas vacation
