From time to time we can all feel “stressed” and need to dig deep for robust stress management techniques. However stress isn’t always bad… There is a sliding scale of stress that ranges from eustress (positive, good, inspiring and empowering stress) through to distress (powerlessness, frozen, negative stress).
We need stress to live our lives – after all, without positive stress (known as eustress) we wouldn’t feel inspired to tackle problems, or to make changes in our lives. We wouldn’t enjoy the thrill of a job well done, or of rising above a challenge.
When you just can’t cope…
The real issue arises when the level of stress we experience, surpasses the levels of stress we can cope with. And these can change at any given time. For example, on one day you may feel on top of the world, and able to take on anything. Something that might usually “stress” you, is nothing more than a minor irritation and you can tackle it readily.
On another day you may feel totally overwhelmed. The areas of your life that carry stress seem to have combined together to cause you extreme distress, and you don’t know which way to turn.
