Mini Mindfulness Break for March 09, 2019

As you will see, stress comes in two varieties: harmful stress which is called distress or strain (too much stress,) and beneficial stress which is called eustress. Father Eli would classify distress or strain as a tense emotion. When you feel stress, you tense up and are often overwhelmed. Stress makes your body tense up and sends chemical to your muscles in preparation for an attack by a saber tooth tiger. There are no tigers to threaten us these days, but we are no better off when we are stressed than primitive man was when a tiger was in the vicinity.
