Stressed at work?

Take a moment to reflect on your levels of stress during the past month. What would you think if I told you right now that stress is a blessing and it is actually trying to help us?

The word stress can have plenty of different definitions, specially if we are trying to define it based on our own experience with stress. Personally I like to use Heidi Hanna's definition due to its simplicity and applicability: “stress is what happens when demand exceeds capacity”. This definition parts from the perspective of physical energy, meaning that stress is what happens when I perceive that the amount of energy demanded from me exceeds how much energy I have or at least perceive that I have.

There are five key components of this physical energy which are: nutrition, movement, rest, sleep and social support. Each of these can be a demand or capacity depending on our experience and habits in each of them.

Details around each of these components exceed this blog’s purpose so I will just leave y…

DRY using props in React

When we are learning about React and we just begin to understand its structure we can face the need to avoid the repetition of logic in the application we are creating, for that reason today we are going to know about the use of props to reuse code and implement DRY ( Don’t Repeat Yourself) in our React project.

First of all, what are the props?
The props are the way in which React can send information between its components, the props are passed from superior components called parent components to inferior components also called child components.

Some features of the props are that they are immutable, which means that the child component should not change the value of the prop since they are used as read values, using props we can pass any type of data such as strings, numbers, booleans, arrays, objects or functions.

Ok, after what we have read, it’s time to put it into practice what the theory says.

In the next example we can see the use of props to send a string  from one component …
