Stress is the overarching term referring to the causes (demands or stressors), consequences (distress and eustress), and modifiers of the psychophysiological (mind-body) response that was originally labeled “the emergency response.” Stress was first identified within medicine and later elaborated in psychology before its study was integrated into public health, management, organizational science, and engineering. During the late 1900s, a well-researched set of skills along with ancient practices for self-regulation were identified for the purpose of managing stress. Stress became a concern for managers and organizations during this period due to the high human and economic costs of mismanaged stress, or distress.
