Study Saturday: Stress & Spirit

When I wined and dined the other night, I was filled with a wealth of insight!

My pilot friend, a fellow Catholic, categorized a couple of things that are strongly involved in our daily lives:

Stress and Spirit

He broke down stress into two types:

  • Constructive stress ~ in which you’re engaging in activity that produces rewarding results (i.e., exercise)
  • Deconstructive stress ~ in which you’re waiting and worrying rather than doing (i.e., stressing at computer)

He split spirit into these two:

  • Encouraging spirit ~ in which someone motivates you to do your best (i.e., mentor)
  • Discouraging spirit ~ in which someone downplays your activities or goals

Also, Captain Kirk pointed out to me (the obvious ~ yet I was oblivious until now) that my initials stand for education:
