When you start a job for the first time you are so excited. It was an exciting process. Not only did you have to provide all your credentials, but you also had to show up multiple interviews to prove that you would be a good fit. Then you had to wait for their response. That is the worst and best part of finding a job. There is this sweet time between final interviews and waiting for their answer. You are excited and nervous, stressed but not stressed. Maybe you already had a job and you are waiting for the sweet relief of leaving your current gig. Maybe you don’t have a job and by waiting for the final call you can finally get out for that big victory dinner you have been planning. All that time waiting has been stressful, but good stress.
It seems like an oxymoron, but some stress is good stress. Our body needs the stress. Unfortunately, lounging around all day doing nothing isn’t that healthy for our heart or immune system. Good stress is like working out or engaging in social activities. Good stress helps pump blood into our hearts and body. It helps us feel alive and that we are participating in this great big world. Good stress is the kind of stress that comes in low doses and is manageable, Bad stress is the opposite.
Bad stress is when you are overwhelmed with information, work, or feelings. Bad stress can take good stress and turn into something awful. For example, good stress gets our hearts pumping with excitement. Bad stress sets our bodies up with an anxiety attack. Bad stress makes us feel bad and makes us lose interest in our jobs or life. It changes our appetite, creates body aches, gets us sick more, and amongst other things, makes us irritable and has had headaches. Imagine trying to perform your best when you are dealing with bad stress?
