Hello, my name is Drabuziu Taisymas
 Very interesting piece!! Stress is a normal response to difficult situations. We often confuse it as some form of mental pressure caused due to our own inability to deal with things. But that’s not what it is. Stress is not an action, it’s a reaction. Stress is our reaction to various external factors.
Before we get to the whole coping part, first we need to understand a few things about stress that are essential.
According to me Stress is not always bad.
Stress is the body’s way of reacting to a challenge. When faced with a tough situation, there are a whole lot of reactions that the body goes through. Increased pulse rate, adrenaline boost, faster response to stimuli and among those, stress is one.
But the same stress that ‘stresses us out’, also makes us quicker and more prone to handle situations better. Stress makes us do our best. So it isn’t always a bad thing.

I agree before publicizing any alternative medicine or treatment it should be backed and approved by detailed research and before publishing, you should mention the exact source so that the people who read it or follow it can make the correct decision.

the possibilities of this approach while simultaneously demonstrating the technique. In this essay, Walker writes about her life as a child which now informs her political and personal landscape. In so doing, she weaves in and out scientific explanations of the environment, religious affiliations, common misconceptions and generalizations, as well as a discussion of the essay format itself. I think that this technique offers an interesting avenue towards self-discovery. In braiding, one can literally write about anything as long as some connection is made between the self of the story and the thing being discussed. In other words, Happy New Year it forces abstract thought. I wonder if creating connections with something completely outside of ourselves will allow for more empathy?
