What is stress?
Stress is a psychological and physiological response of events that upsets our personal balance in some ways. These events or demands are generally called stressors. Stressors are usually thought of as being negative, such as a busy work schedule or a difficult relationship. This means that anything that forces us to adapt or adjust to can be a stressor. However, a stressor may also include positive events such as getting married or receiving a promotion. In this case, an event can be good or bad only if the changes bring strain to our coping skills and adaptive resources, which may result of an subjective feeling of stress along with the body’s biological stress response.
What causes stress?
Stress can be caused by many things, such as the state of the world, the environment in which you live or work, or your family. Your stress can also come from your own irresponsible behavior, negative attitudes and feelings, or unrealistic expectations. The causes of stress are highly individual, meaning that whatever you consider stressful depends on different things such as your personality, general outlook on life, problem-solving abilities, and social support system.
