- Death of a spouse
- Marriage separation
- Death of a close family member
- Injury or illness
- Job loss
- Marriage reconciliation
These are to just name a few. The very thought of these causes anxiety and stress. Imagine what going through one of these will lead to? Not just stress, but ill health caused by the stress.
Stress is just a response to pressure or threat. How our brain takes it. Under stress we may feel tense, nervous, or on edge or sometimes simply indifferent. But that happens only when we are mentally strong.
The stress response is physical, too. Stress triggers a surge of a hormone called adrenaline that temporarily affects the nervous system. The situations and pressures that cause stress are known as stressors. We usually think of stressors as being negative, such as an exhausting work schedule or a rocky relationship. However, anything that puts high demands on you can be stressful. As right not, the brain is not FIT enough to see through the positive side of this situation. Or the boundless possibilities it may lead to in future.
Feeling stressed? You're not alone. Most adults report being under increasing levels of stress. Modern life is filled with change and uncertainty, complicated relationships, urgent deadlines, and long workdays. Developing your problem-solving skills can help make life's challenges more manageable.
Problem-solving is the process of identifying stressors and creating strategies to manage them. It's a powerful tool to add to your stress management toolbox. You can brush up on your problem-solving skills with these simple steps. Like any skill, the more you practice the more effective you'll be.
Of course, not all stress is caused by external factors. Stress can also be internal or self-generated, when you worry excessively about something that may or may not happen, or have irrational, pessimistic thoughts about life. And to be true, maximum number of times, it is internal as we as humans, love to make things big in the head than they actually would be.
Stress isn’t always bad. In small doses and if the right kind, it can help you perform under pressure and motivate you to do your best. But when you’re constantly running in emergency mode, your mind and body will pay the price. If you frequently find yourself feeling frazzled and overwhelmed, it’s time to take action to bring your nervous system back into balance. And trust us, it is truly in your hands. Through basic help and a strong mind you can materialize and make stress work in your favour.
Finally, what causes stress depends, at least in part, on your perception of it. Something that's stressful to you may not faze someone else; they may even enjoy it. For example, your morning commute may make you anxious and tense because you worry that traffic will make you late. Others, however, may find the trip relaxing because they allow more than enough time and enjoy listening to music while they drive. So all in all you get to decide what is stressful and what is not. It’s all about training your mind to see what you want it to see. Simpler than it sounds.
