Stress refers to the ways in which your body responds to the high demands of everyday living. And, although we’re about to highlight the bad rap that stress has acquired in our modern world, stress itself isn’t always a bad thing. In fact, there are times when your body’s reaction to stress serves an adaptive, or performance enhancing function. “Good” stress can equip you with the adrenaline-fueled laser focus that you need in order to ace that impossible Physics exam or prepare for that make-or-break board meeting. And then, there are those times when stress isn’t so constructive—like when the pressure to achieve perfection works against you to diminish your performance and hamper your quality of life.
For a surprising number of Americans—77% to be exact—chronic stress is the background fuzz of everyday existence. Even non-crippling stress can take its toll: 60% of all human illnesses can be attributed to the long-term destructive impact of stress. Partnering with a stress management counselor, they can help you identify major stressors and triggers in your life, recognize maladaptive thought patterns, and develop skills to practice good stress hygiene.
