Let me ask you… on a scale of 1-5 how would you rate your stress level? 5 being like, WHOA and 1 being a struggle to find stress..
So, where did you fall on the scale? 1? 3? 5?.. 25?!?
Well, we all have it… and unfortunately its not going anywhere. In order to manage it, you have to know what exactly is it.
Stress is the body’s response to any demand placed on it; whether the demand is pleasant or not.
Positive Stress: allows us to accomplish difficult tasks and rise to the challenge.
Negative Stress: causes physical damage, decreased immune system function and deterioration of the body.
- An example of Positive Stress is getting a new job, graduating or getting married.
- Negative stress is something everyone has experienced in life and I want to help you to focus on how you can manage NEGATIVE STRESS.
