ARE YOU VELCRO OR TEFLON?

According to researchers at Penn State University, there are two types of people – “Velcro people” and “Teflon people.”

When Velcro people get upset about something, the negative emotion sticks and, at the end of the day, they are still grumpy and thinking about what bothers them.

Teflon people, on the other hand, let things slide right off.

And, a recent study has shown that Velcro people end up suffering much greater health problems down the road because of the way they handle stress.

So, it’s not the stress itself that’s a problem. Everybody has stress in their lives. Instead, it’s the way we handle stress that affects our health over the long term.
