Can you list the top 5 things that cause you stress? Briefly explain why you feel that way. Label each as either eustress or distress and also label each as acute or chronic. You will understand these terms better if you read the power point slides for this topic first.
Here is my example:
1. My son – He is a wildland fire fighter in South Dakota – This would be Eustress since I should be happy that he has a job but it worries me for obvious reasons. I would not label it as acute since he has been there since the middle of May but I don’t suppose it is chronic either since he will be coming home eventually.
