Stress and Stress Management

Stress = the body's reaction to change specifically, change it does not expect, does not want or feels threatened by
Eustress = positive stress    Distress = negative stress.

All stress can be negative if we don't know how to handle it.  For example, a wedding is a wonderful, beautiful time for husband and wife and all the bridal party, families and friends.  It
is however a very stressful time.  If wedding planning is done 1 thing at a time in a realistic goal with shared responsibilities, it will stay positive.  If the wife is doing everything herself and
things start going wrong..it's negative.

Stress ends up effecting all areas of PISES and can lead to heart disease, muscle tension, confusion, loss of sleep, depression, isolation from friends, poor grades and bad decisions.

When a person is effected by a stressor (something that causes stress), which is different for everyone, their body reacts the fight or flight response.  Heart rate increases, breathing rate
increases, digestive system slows down, and the body prepares itself as if it was a real fight.  This is because of primitive animal instincts within all animals.

Stress management techniques such as creating lists of things to do, deep breathing, making "me time", goal setting, object manipulation, exercise and many others, can be helpful in
assisting someone in managing stress
