Studies show correlations between stress arousal on performance. Boredom and disengagement trigger too little of the stress hormones secreted by the HPA axis - and performance lags. As we get more motivated and engaged, "good stress" brings us to the optimal zone, where we perform at our best. If the challenges get too great and we become overwhelmed, we go into the zone of burnout, where stress hormone levels get too high and hamper performance.
