W.O.W. Stress

RR129 Word of the Week: Stress…Eustress…Distress
Ried is tackling the complexities of the word stress. This was going to be last week’s word but there was so much nuance (and information) that nuance ended up being the W.O.W. for last week.
Ried goes over some of the differences and how stress was not used to describe mental states until the 19th or 20th century.
She also admonishes Cambridge dictionary for the sub par definition they provide.
Lastly, she also briefly touches on the fact that the meltdown point resulting from stress is different and unique for each person.
