Stress! Everyone experiences it. There is no escape because it is a part of life. However, ninety percent of the stress we feel is created in our own minds. There is good and bad stress. Good stress, called eustress, is essential for optimum performance. It stimulates and makes us alert and provides the motivation and drive for us to meet life's challenges. For example, when taking a test in school, students may not do their best if they are too relaxed. Feeling a little stress makes them more alert. Their recall is improved and they do better. If good stress is managed, it is helpful and not a problem. However, there can be too much of a good thing. An excessive amount of eustress, as a result of too many challenges all at once, can cause distress. If students experience too much stress, called distress, their bodies become alarmed. They do poorly because they cannot concentrate and recall what they studied. As a result they feel anxious and panicky. Too much distress can create a stress overload and become unmanageable resulting in physical and mental problems.
