If I may ask, are you feeling stress on your everyday work and activities? What are the factors that cause someone to be stressed? How can you say that you are already stressed?

Stress they say is the harmful physical and emotional response that occurs when there is a poor match between job demands and the capabilities, resources, or needs of the person. It could be psychological, social or even physiological in nature. It could arise from personal, financial, and the activities that we are doing everyday. It can lead to poor performance, injury, diseases or even death. Stress is categorized in four types:

Eustress is a type of short-term stress that provides immediate strength. Eustress arises at points of increased physical activity, enthusiasm, and creativity. Eustress is a positive stress that arises when motivation and inspiration are needed.

Distress is a negative stress brought about by constant readjustments or alterations in a routine. Distress creates feelings of discomfort and unfamiliarity. There are two types of distress. Acute stress is an intense stress that arrives and disappears quickly. Chronic stress is a prolonged stress that exists for weeks, months, or even years.

Hyperstress occurs when an individual is pushed beyond what he or she can handle. Hyperstress results from being overloaded or overworked. When someone is hyperstressed, even little things can trigger a strong emotional response.

Hypostress is the opposite of hyperstress. Hypostress occurs when an individual is bored or unchallenged. People who experience hypostress are often restless and uninspired.

Now that we have identified what are factors contributing to stress, we have to find ways on how to cope with it. Make next post will tackle about how to get rid of this stress..

I went through all those kinds BD27 and am still alive.

Challenge for you. Read this blog first and scroll down to find the photographs. Find me and tell me in those years of handling all kinds of stresses as mentioned in this blog, tell me how old I am in my picture?

If you can guess, I'll give you a privilege what reward do you want from Down Under. I'm not joking. Don't ask for the impossible though because I might not be able to afford it.
