GOOD STRESS VS BAD STRESS

EUSTRESS

Honestly, not all stress is bad! Feeling stressed can be good for you in small doses.

There is such a thing as good stress (which is also known as eustress) and this can drive you to reach your goals and ambitions. It can also push you to be productive and creative. Your mood will improve when you have projects going on that stimulate your mind and in turn, will enhance your performance at work. For example, if you are on track to get a promotion, you feel nervous to do well in order to gain that promotion.

BAD STRESS

Bad stress tends to happen when you have a lot going on in your life and everything starts to pile up to a point where it affects your mood in a negative way. It can affect you both physically and emotionally. When stress gets bad, it tends to create tension and you may burnout. Emotional stress that lingers for months can actually affect your immune system. All this bad stress can disrupt your workflow and potentially have a domino effect, impacting on the team around you.

GOOD STRESS

However, it is possible for bad stress to become good stress. This can be achieved by focusing on what you have around you to cope with something that is deemed challenging, looking at the advantages of a situation you find yourself in, constantly reminding yourself of what strengths you have and having a positive mindset.

ARE YOU STRESSED?

Signs of too much stress may include:

  • Lack of concentration
  • Becoming ill more often
  • Aching body
  • Headaches
  • Irritation
  • Trouble sleeping/staying awake
  • Change in appetite
  • Anxious
  • Becoming more angry

STAY HEALTHY!

The key to staying healthy is to have a good work-life balance. Working until 10pm every night is not fun for anyone. As they say, you only live once, so make sure you are actually living! Make sure you take control and start to manage your stress. You can do this by exercising, knowing what your stress triggers are, relaxing, managing your time, staying away from caffeine and reaching out. But at the same time don’t become too comfortable in your daily routines… or you’ll risk losing your edge.

Either way, keep an eye out for you and for those close to you. Help, and don’t hesitate to ask for help, there is nothing wrong with it – after all, a problem shared is a problem halved.
