The Lavender Basket
A guide to stress reduction
Stress comes in many forms: positive stress, negative stress and distress. In small amounts, stress can help keep us on our toes in order to respond to demands and expectations in our daily lives. Examples of positive stress are, being a recipient of a surprise party or planning a vacation for the family. Examples of negative stress would include running late for work, cramming for a test or finding out the washer no longer works. Distress occurs when negative stressors become long term and take over your physical and emotional states. You then find it difficult to handle activities of daily living. Examples of distress are: being in a divorce situation, having a long term illness or financial problems.
