Stress & Burn Out

Stress is not always bad for us …

It’s simply our body’s response to changes that create challenging demands. There is a difference between what we perceive as positive stress (eustress), and negative stress (distress).

However, we should not endure stress for any length of time, and it is imperative to find resolve as quickly as possible, to prevent damage to vital organs, reduce the outcome of it developing into anxiety, or burnout, protect our immune system, and prevent physical illness.

Stress appears when we feel under a lot of pressure, whether this is from our environment, or from others around. It may occur when we have too many changes in our lives, or worried about something we have no control over. It can arise when we have too much on our plate, or if we do not have balance between work and play.
