Trillions of years in the future, a member of some vaguely humanoid species will be stressing out about an archeology exam they have. One of the questions will read, "What do we believe the purpose of artifact 00284-B9 (recovered from ancient mud pit) was? A. Primitive footwear. B. Sacrificial totem used to lower academic stress. C. Used to honor Master Nike of the Justdoït lineage. D. All of the above."

I don't know what world you live in, but too much stress can cause mental and/or physical issues. The potential symptoms list probably stretches out mile. For example, stress causes you to produce cortisol which, while it has a good antiflammatory use, most stress causes don't need that (e.g. stress due to an upcoming exam) and cortisol also causes the appetite to be stimulated (not good for people on a diet), and when comb8ned with adrenaline which also is released by stress it will raise your heart rate and create a fight or flight response will absolutely not help one to de-stress. This is among other bad effects not to mention all the other bad side effects of stress beyond cortisol levels. Yes, one, has the power to overcome stress. But it isn't easy and the more practical thing to do would be to take precautions to avoid stress such as studying in advance and get a good sleep and the stuff the college students [typically] never do. Long story short, stress is a bitch. ugh.

#15 I never said stress doesn't lead to issues. I'm saying stress will harm if you let it harm you. If you let it harm you, it will lead to the issues you've mentioned. The point is, don't let it hurt you.
