Eustress -- Too Much of a Good Thing

The garden club had its mum sale on Saturday, and i bought several. Usually the mums come just in time to decorate the bare front door or fill in on the back step, but this year, my flowerpots are filled to overflowing. The front step looks great without the mums.

Too much of a good thing--brimming flowerpots plus fresh, new mums--equals stress. This is eustress--the stress of the good.

Too much stresses us just as much (and maybe more?) than too little. I can't get out of bed in the morning because i can't decide what to wear. I have too many choices.

We think more is better, but think again.
