Stress, it seems unavoidable because life itself is full of situations that cause stress and anxiety.
Things that seem out of our control just stack up until we feel overwhelmed and unable to cope.
What is stress? Stress is pretty much anything that causes strain to our bodies; it can be physical, emotional, or psychological.
Basically, stress is our body’s natural reaction to something that has happened. Some stress is not harmful to us; that sort of stress is referred to as eustress.
Eustress can be called positive stress, which seems at odds with how we normally think of stress. However, according to the above definition, stress is anything that causes strain on our bodies, so what kind of stress causes strain in a good way?
The rush you get when playing sports, that adrenaline rush is a type of stress, but it is a good feeling.
You might feel the same thing on a roller coaster, skiing, or anything that we find exciting and thrilling; it releases adrenaline and cortisol, which causes the heart rate to increase, diverts blood flow to our main muscle groups all of which give us a push of energy and a quick increase in strength.
