Resilience to stress
Stress is our naturally occurring physical, behavioral, emotional and cognitive response to situations that are perceived as threatening or pressurizing. Experiencing stress is an inevitable part of our life and it cannot be vanished completely. However, the levels of experienced stress can be modified.
In fact, some amount of stress is necessary for energizing us to work towards our goal and it definitely adds to our performance. This kind of stress is called Eustress (good stress). The problem begins once this minimal level of stress reaches high levels, making Eustress into distress (bad stress).
If you’re living with disturbing levels of stress, your wellbeing might be at risk. It may seem like there’s nothing you can do about stress. But you have a lot more control than you might think.
Effective stress management can help you break the hold stress has on your life, so you can be happier, healthier, and more productive. The ultimate goal is a balanced life, with time for work, relationships, relaxation, and fun—and the resilience to hold up under pressure and meet challenges head on.
