There are four types of Stress that can impact our lives. Not all of them are bad. In fact, some stress is good for us. Good stress gets us out of bed in the morning and motivates us to excel.

Eustress
Eustress is a good type of stress. This is what you feel when you are watching a suspenseful movie, riding a rollercoaster or about to finish running a marathon. Eustress helps motivate us to finish projects that we are excited about and contributes positively to a creative mindset.

Distress
Distress refers to frustrations, unresolved anger, or fear. It causes anxiety and mental suffering. This is a bad stress and does a great job at blocking creativity.

Under-stress
Under-stress is the lack of any stress, and is similar to boredom and hopelessness. An unchallenging job can lead to under-stress. If people are not challenged then they are not motivated to be creative.

Over-stress
Over-stress is what you feel when you have pushed yourself too hard, are late for an important meeting, or have a big deadline that is looming. People who are in this condition do not have the time to think creatively. They are only worried about dealing with the issues immediately at hand and cannot step back to look at the big picture.
