When you hear the word stress, what is usually your first thoughts? Most of you would probably start thinking of the negative aspects associated with the word. Not only does it have adverse associations but on the flip side it can prove to be very beneficial in some cases. It can be classified into two types based on the intensity and level your tension is at. These types of anxiety can help you to cope in an effective manner.
What is Eustress? - Pronounced - [yoo¯'stres]
Eustress is the first type and by simple definition states "a positive form of stress". It is an essential ingredient of your life as it provides the necessary motivation to perform well in challenges such as competitions, interviews and even exams to name a few. This type helps you to move forward and keeps you fired up to face all the hurdles that get in your way.
What is the second type of stress?
The second type, as you may have already guessed, carries unfavorable side effects and is of no use to you - it is known as Distress. You will experience this type when you are faced with major changes and alterations of your daily living, most times they are unexpected changes. This type can have a huge impact on your health leading to such things as:
Distress is further divided into two types one being acute anxiety and the other being Chronic. Now acute accompanies a sudden change in your daily routine. This is usually very powerful and strong but is only a temporary phase. The positive thing here is you can be free from this type in a very short period of time and it helps to adjust your body to the new challenge.
Is Chronic Stress caused by one major alteration?
Chronic is a relatively permanent phase which you may experience at some point in time. It can be caused by continous alterations in your daily routine creating constant pressure and anxiety which leads to this development. A few years back one of my students lost her mother, brother and family pet within a period of 18 months, now I would agree this is to the extreme for an example but it happens. As a result she developed this condition which lasted well into two years - after some therapy and using the proper tools she was able to regain control of her life.
With the proper professional therapy and self-help tools you can lessen the negative side effects of these types of hardship.
