You may wonder what the difference between good and bad stress means to you. Many mental health experts agree that stress can be of two kinds, negative or positive, or distress and eustress. Both can have a detrimental impact on your health.
Negative or bad stress is generally concerned with distress and can either be short or long- term and it brings about prolonged feelings of helplessness, discomfort and negativity. Good stress, also known as eustress leads to feelings of enthusiasm, motivation, success, elation and feeling you are in control helping you to accomplish your goals.
No matter what the situation, how you channel your feelings will determine the level of stress. In small doses, stress can actually be really good for you. It helps you become more focused and can lead to success, happiness and fulfilment. Bad stress, on the other hand, is detrimental to emotional, mental as well as physical wellbeing.
Stress activates the fight-or-flight response in the brain, Whether you choose to confront the problem or flee from it is up to you. So it is basically you who decides whether your stress will negatively impact your life.
The answer to dealing with stress really does lie in your own hands. Why is it that some people burn out after a few years of work, while others go on to become extremely successful? Chronic stress over a long period of time will eventually wear your body and mind down.
Perhaps a good start is learning to control your reaction to the stimuli around you. Rather than letting the stress overtake your mind, you can choose to redirect it to slow down. Meditation, stress management and exercise can go a long way in helping you to slow your mind traffic down.
