According to Selyle (1956), ―Stress is defined as the pressure experienced by a person in response to life demands. These demands are referred to as stressors and include a range of life events, physical factors (e.g.: cold, hunger, hemorrhage, pain), environmental conditions and personal thoughts.According to him, stress is a process of adjusting to or dealing with circumstances that disrupt or threaten to disrupt a person’s physical or psychological functioning. Stress is tension, strain, or pressure from a situation that requires us to use, adapt, or develop new coping skills.People experience stress in different ways and for different reasons. The reaction is based on your perception of an event or situation. If you view a situation negatively, you will likely feel distressed—overwhelmed, oppressed, or out of control. Distress is the more familiar form of stress. The other form, eustress, results from a “positive” view of an event or situation, which is why it is also called “good stress.”Eustress helps you rise to a challenge and can be an antidote to boredom because it engages focused energy. That energy can easily turn to distress, however, if something causes you to view the situation as unmanageable or out of control. Many people regard public speaking or airplane flights as very stressful—causing physical reactions such as an increased heart rate and a loss of appetite—while others look forward to the event. It’s often a question of perception: A positive stress or for one person can be a negative stress or for another.
