I agree Natalya . Life is impossible without stress. Now I'm feeling very stressed. The easiest ways to reduce my stress are going somewhere with friends , listening to the music and sleeping. I agree stress may be the motivation of the life. In my opinion , when we have got the stress , we ever try to escape from that feeling. We never want that feeling again. This thing will help people to motivate their personality to improve their lives.

I think life is impossible without stress. We experience it on different stages of our life. We can't eliminate stress from our life altogether.  To some extent it can be even useful because stressful situations in life make us psychologically stronger, give us moral strength. In the course of time we learn to combat stress and everyone has his or her own ways for beating stress. I, for example, eat some chocolates,  take a wander around the town. When I have vacations I like to go to the mountains (the Carpathian mountains). The nature is fabulous there. There are lots of beauty spots where you can take great pictures and relax. Every time I go there I fall in love with that place.

I agree with you Natalya. Some stress is good for you but not too much. I also love to get away from the hectic bustle of city life and into the countryside to relax. 

alot of thanks it is realy amazing ! i noticed the progress in listining  as for me.

We have to take it easy to reduce stress. There are many good things to do do while we have stress, and perhabs  the best thing is thinking of those people who are suffering from great problems. They are living a worse life than we do.

Today this topic is very urgent. People who live in big cities are more influenced by any stress. They face it almost every day in different forms. I think everyone must learn how to beat the stress because it may cause awful consequences in future such as arguments and quarrels in family, low-self esteem, deseases and so on.

I' m agree with  you. The stress is the first caused  of  the  suisidual.
