Stress Unit 2 Handout *Questions you will be graded on in Week 3*What is stress?In eastern philosophy it is known as an absence of inner peace. In Westernphilosophy, it is a loss of emotional control. The current definition of stress is:the inability to handle a perceived (imagined or real) threat to their mental,emotional, physical or spiritual well-being. This results in a series ofphysiological responses and adaptations made by the body in response.Does the body know the difference between good stress and bad stress?No, the body’s reaction/response is the same whether the demand is pleasureor pain. The physiological response is the same: flight or fight. The amygdaladetermines if the stimuli creating the response is dangerous or not. If it isfound to be a danger, the body will have a reaction in the nervous andendocrine systems to fight the stimuli or run away (flight) to avoid pain.Types of StressEustress is the “good” stress. It could mean a job promotion, homework, orstarting a new relationship. It puts pressure on the body but is positive sinceit results in a good outcome and motivates the person to do better.Neustress is sensory stimuli with no consequential effect.
