Stress is experienced when demands exceed resources.

Posted on February 3, 2017


Stress is a condition or feeling experienced when a person perceives that “demands exceed the personal and social resources the individual is able to mobilize.” In less formal terms, we feel stressed when we feel that “things are out of control”.

A healthy response to stress, then, is to focus on decreasing demands, or increasing resources. Yes, it’s kinda that simple.
