It’s been said that we can’t exist without stress.
Stress is the body’s response to a perceived threatening situation. It’s meant to protect us. Positive stress allows us to perform at higher levels and to face challenges in life.
We’ve all heard of situations where individuals perform unimaginable feats of strength and courage to save the life of another person.
That is positive stress. This type of stress provides us with the extra physical and emotional resources needed when our life or the life of someone we love is threatened.
On a smaller scale, positive stress creates great athletes, allows us to ace a test, speak in front of an audience or obtain a job promotion.
We can face and overcome all sorts of situations due to positive stress. Normally when the situation ends our stress levels return to normal.
However, negative or bad stress has reached epidemic proportions in the United States. Research has shown that 90% of office visits to the doctor can be attributed to stress related symptoms. Most modern stress can be attributed to how we perceive a situation.
