Stress And Our Response To It by James Foster

Stress consists of those many events, circumstances, situations and processes that seemingly jump out at us from unexpected places. It is those issues and things that get in the way of what we are trying to do or have to do. They are the distractions, disruptions and interferences in life that impede progress, derail success and complete new tasks that must be completed before we can get back on track. Stress then is the external pressure we feel from the world around us. It pushes in at us, blocks us and bothers us. Stress may be caused by another person’s purposeful behavior but most frequently is an unpredictable, unplanned circumstance or event.

In all of nature these are equal and opposite forces that maintain delicate states of balance. In this case we individually respond to the external pressure of stress with an equal and opposite force referred to as press. These two forces push against each other. With some exception and within reason stress does not usually do us much harm. The press we ourselves exert to push back stress on the other hand may severely damage and deplete us. We have little to no control over stress directly but a full range of choices over the press we use to push it back. This latter force may be experienced as mindless aggressive push or an all consuming state of worry or a well chosen tactical effort designed to help us find a state of calm, organize ourselves and systematically work against the stress we find in our lives. To hear more about recommended methods and strategies of applying well designed responses to stress join us at the teleseminar.
