Good stress, bad stress : an indispensable guide to identifying and managing your stress by Barry Lenson - Stress! It's become a universal condition, the most pervasive psychological ailment in our society, and a contender for the most widespread health problem of any kind. But all stress is not created equal. Good stress and bad stress have been called the yin and yang of modern work life. Arguably, good stress (a less formal name for what researchers call "challenge" stress) is the kind that motivates and excites and yields good results on the job or at home. Bad stress (what researchers call "hindrance" stress) diminishes one's performance and manifests itself in career dissatisfaction, deteriorating health, and procrastination. Now, in Good Stress, Bad Stress, Barry Lenson clearly maps the differences between the two types of stress and offers strategies and action plans for getting rid of the bad stress and focusing on making the most of good stress.
