What is stress and can it be good for you?

Does it kill off your brain cells and can it cause depression?
 
How does your brain perceive a terrifying situation and prepare your body for survival?
 
"Grant me the courage to change the things I can change, the serenity to accept the things I can't change, and the wisdom to know the difference." ~ Reinhold Niebuhr
 
A healthy lifestyle is an essential companion to any stress-reduction program. General health and stress resistance can be enhanced by regular exercise, a diet rich in a variety of whole grains, vegetables, and fruits, and by avoiding excessive alcohol, caffeine, and tobacco.
