What Is the Difference between Stress and Distress?

Answer

The difference between stress and distress is simple. Stress is something that has a solution while distress is something that doesn't. Having a deadline is stress, but if you focus on your work and meet the deadline, the stress goes away. Distress is losing your cool in a traffic jam. There is nothing you can do but to sit and wait for it to clear.
