Stress is defined as “any change that we must adapt to, whether it is positive or negative.” Stress is an everyday fact of life. Our adaptation to stress as a positive or negative experience is determined by how we perceive, interpret and respond. A useful metaphor is to consider the riders on a roller-coaster who experience acceleration stress. Some riders feed off the thrill and adrenaline rush of the roller coaster ride, while others hold on for dear life hoping that the ride will end quickly.
