Wednesday Word: Eustress

Eustress - noun. Pronounced u-stress, this is the kind of stress that's supposed to be beneficial, whether it is mental or physical. Eustress is the opposite of distress. Whereas distress is negative stress, eustress is positive stress. It might be the little boost you need to get a project done or sprint across a finish line. Wikipedia has a surprisingly detailed entry about it.
