Understanding Stress – The 3 Types of Stress!


When people think of stress, they usually think of it as a bad thing, certainly not good, but stress can actually be beneficial. Stress is classified into three types: Eustress, Neustress and Distress. They differ from how they affect a person or individual. Let's tackle them one by one.

Eustress is the good kind of stress. It is stress that gives motivation and inspiration. This stress stems from many situations. For example, being promoted or winning a new job gives a person a little stress in the sense that they need to adapt to new working conditions and create new relationships with new employees along with expectations for job performance. However, it is a good stress because it gives you motivation to make your work work well and the offer or job offer serves as a reward or a prize for the hard work you have done.

The other type of stress is needed. It is basically the complete opposite of Eustress with regard to its effect on an individual. This type of stress causes bad effects to a person and is what people usually refer to when talking about stress. If someone talks about stress, it's almost always worried about negative distress. Concern causes despair, sadness and sadness or more simply interferes with the equilibrium in the body. An example of a stressor that may cause distress is the death of a minor, major medical difficulties or a major loss of property or position. At worst, it will certainly cause sadness and depression and will often be a life-changing event.

The last type of stressor is called neustress. Neustress comes from prefix & # 39; neu & # 39; means neutral and is basically a type of stress that lies in the neutral reaction zone. It is a stress that does not cause any particular harm or justice for the individual to the extent that it causes distress. It is also not necessarily positive or stimulating change stress.

For an example, imagine that a person in a store hears someone else's conversation. This person may talk about their son's illness or accident or even death with their friend. While a person can react to it and feel sympathetic to that person, but it will only last moments and it will not affect the person either negative or in a positive way, certainly not in the same way or to the same extent as knowing that person would affect them and it is therefore considered a neutral effect. Simply put, think of it as a referee who hears a case of murder, the referee does not take sides but only looks at the facts and decides what's right and right.

The ultimate effect, although the types of stress you experience come down to how you perceive or see the stressor in the light of your own opinions and worldview. What seriously affects a person at all, but has a major influence on another. Whether you take an event as good, bad or neutral is … well … at the end of the day … up to you.
