Stress: Part 2
In the last NAB Leadership letter, I talked about good stress—Eustress—and the actual need that we have to desire to imagine and work toward a ministry reality beyond the status quo. This month, I’d like to jump into the waters of a discussion of bad stress.
Stress is of course all around us. According to the American Psychological Association (APA):
“More adults report that their stress is increasing rather than decreasing. 39 percent said their stress had increased over the past year and even more said that their stress had increased over the past five years (44 percent). Only 27 percent of adults report that their stress has decreased in the past five years and fewer than a quarter of adults report that their stress has decreased in the past year (17 percent).”
