Health Education 44 Chapter 3 1. Stress and strain are associated with most daily activities. Generally, positive stress, or stress that presents the opportunity for personal growth and satisfaction, is called eustress. Getting married, starting school, beginning a career, developing new friendships, and learning a new physical skill all give rise to eustress. Distress, or negative stress, is caused by events that result in debilitative stress and strain including financial problems, the death of a loved one, academic difficulties, and the breakup of a relationship. Distress can have a negative effect on health. We cannot get rid of distress entirely: like eustress, it is a part of life. However, we can train ourselves to recognize the events that cause distress and to anticipate our reactions to them. We can learn coping skills and strategies that will help us mange stress more effectively. 2.
