Stress effects everyone in their life at one time or another, no one can escape it. The difference is how each person deals with stress and if the stress you are dealing with is the good or bad kind. Last year was a hot bed of stress for Peter and I; Peter had a ton of stuff going on with work and I had a bunch of random medical stuff to deal with. Both work stress and illness stress are ranked in the Top 10 High Stress Situations. Here are all 10 if you would like to see if you are experiencing any, some or all of these factors that can be known to cause stress: Death of a family member, chronic pain or chronic illness, divorce, marriage, loss of job or job change, moving, primary relationship problems, occupational problems, and severe financial problems.
I have listed a few websites that I mentioned in the video if you would like to get more information on the difference between Good Stress and Bad Stress and some of the techniques I like to use for relaxation.

What is bad stress?
Bad stress can also be termed as distress, and is chronic or ongoing stress that takes over your everyday life.
What is good stress?
Good stress is a type of mild stress that can motivate a person to complete a task or goal. Instead of being harmful and detrimental to the body, it has been proven that mild bouts to actually enhance and improve cognitive brain function. It is important that it only is for a short period.
How can you identify good stress and bad stress?
That’s why it is up to us all as individuals to determine what kind of stress we are under. If it makes us feel invigorated, challenged and motivated, it is probably good stress. If it leaves us tired, worn and unenthusiastic, it is probably bad stress.
Signals of Too Much Stress
It may be tough to tell when you’re experiencing good or bad stress, but there are important ways that your body lets you know that you’re struggling with too much stress. Watch out for the following warning signs:
• Inability to concentrate or complete tasks
• Get sick more often with colds
• Body aches
• Other illnesses like autoimmune diseases flare up
• Trouble falling sleeping or staying awake
• Changes in appetite
• More angry or anxious than usual
5 Fast Relaxation Tips
1. Meditation: App I like Headspace (10 sessions free)
2. Aromatherapy: (lavender, rose, chamomile, jasmine, sandalwood, and sage) I like vanilla
3. Exercise also has some direct stress-busting benefits. Physical activity helps bump up the production of your brain’s feel-good neurotransmitters, called endorphins.
4. Create a Positive Reality (Temporary Escape)
5. Bath with candles, music, Epsom salts (detox)
1. Spa Day (Create one at home)
2. Retail Therapy (One I use regularly and then my husband is stressed)
3. Wine and any of the above (used in moderation) 😉
