Adaptation,Distress And Eustress
When Dr Hans Selye MD published his book the stress of life (1978) he did not have a clue about the can of worms he had just opened. Selye originally called stress ‘General Adaptive Syndrome’ (GAS) and people have misused and abused what was originally meant by General Adaptive Syndrome. After researching stress from 1978 onwards it is clear now that most people are totally confused about what it is. Everyday in any book store you can find any number of articles written about the subject that will confuse you.
