Single-session Bible study on Stress, Christian Life. 3 pages. Leader Guide available.

When people talk about stress in everyday life, they usually are describing “bad” stress, distress. Commonly, “stress” refers to problems like sick kids, overwhelming credit card debt, or arguments with co-workers. 

Experts, though, remind us that not all stress is distress. Good stress, or “eustress,” gets us out of bed in the morning. It keeps us motivated and moving forward. That rapid heartbeat you experience at the surprise birthday party your friends planned for you is eustress. So is the rush that floods your being when your team wins. So is the feeling when that golden oldie starts to play and happy memories flood your heart, sending a smile across your face.
