Eustress, or good stress, is thought to be helpful for getting your motivated, upping your performance and emotional well-being. It’s the stress of a worthwhile challenge and feels exciting. It isn’t linked to any of the effects of bad stress.
So my question for you is: are you using eustress in your life? Examples include working on meaningful projects that require long hours or hard work, exercising, engaging in challenging hobbies, cold, and heat exposure (such as saunas and cryotherapy).
Get some eustress today! And if you’re suffering from regular stress, explore how you could make whatever is stressing you out into a eustress activity. Perhaps you could divide a project into manageable, bite-sized chunks.
