Some Notes About Stress
- Not all stress is negative. Fear, excitement, anxiety, playful, sexual, and aggressive arousal are all closely related.
- Duration of the feeling state and environmental factors can cause arousal to increase or change form.
- What starts as pleasure may transform into fear or aggression.
- Responses to both positive and negative stressors share some of the same behavioral characteristics and appearance.
- They cause some of the same neuro-chemical stress related changes in the brain.
- Both positive and negative stress responses may occur simultaneously.
- Indicators of stress rarely occur in isolation, but can still be classified as “mild, moderate, and severe.”
- Any combination of three or more simultaneously occurring signs of moderate stress combine to indicate extreme stress.
