How is your juggling technique these days? Are all types of stress being managed or are you dropping some of the balls?
Do you feel like you've bitten off more than you can chew, like this man juggling swords and chainsaws!
We live in a faced paced life, and we all have a number of 'balls' in the air at the same time. These balls create STRESS; each one creating a different type of stress.

The way that best describes stress from my perspective is what I will call PEC stress.
No, this is not the kind of stress that gives you an Arnold Schwarzenegger chest, it is my short form for Physical, Emotional and Chemical Stress.
Let's take a closer look:
Rather than sounding like a broken record and going into too much detail, (I feel old using the reference of a record, as the techie savvy kids using the internet today may not even know what a record is..), I will allow you to click on the links to the PEC Stress categories and learn more about these particular types of stress yourself.
Here we go back to the origins of modern day stress theories, that of Hans Selye. He importantly distinguished for us the words Eustress and Dis-stress, otherwise known as positive and negative stress.
We don't often think of stress as being positive in nature, yet this is the very definition of Eustress.
First, it is important to understand that health and dis-ease are a balancing act of positive and negative stressors.
If you have more negative stresses in your life that positive ones, you guessed it: Dis-ease.
If however, you balance all your negative stresses (some of which we have little to no control over), you can tip the balance in favour of health.
A common example of a Eu-stress is digesting your food. It takes energy to digest food, but it is positively necessary to keep you alive. If you digest an apple, we'd classify it as a positive stress. Digesting a chocolate bar is a negative stress...sorry chocolate lovers, I know I may get death treats over this one!
There are many more examples to help you understand further, just click here to learn more about eu-stresses and dis-stresses.
For lack of a better word, I am calling the last types of stress, those belonging to the end user. Classes like Student stress, Teacher Stress, Teenager Stress, Pregnancy Stress and Work Related Stress belong here.
We already know in our preliminary study on the Definition of Stress, that stress responses are highly unique. It therefore makes perfect sense to speak of types of stress as it pertains to differing categories of individuals or circumstances.
So now that I have laid out for your in brief manner the various classifications and categories of stress, I implore you to click on any of the above links that pertain to you, and step up to the challenge of rescuing yourself from the modern day juggling act.
Or skip on over to my Stress Quiz and find out more about what's keeping your hands tied.
You know what they say, if you can't beat them, join them...so if you can't stop all the balls in the air at least learn how to juggle with grace. Let this website and my expertise guide you on your way.
Many blessings on a safe and spectacular journey.
