Stress is often considered America’s #1 Health Problem. It triggers can be found just about everywhere: from family and friends to work and the economy, from health and healthcare, to politics and international relations, and the list goes on and on.
Happily, good stress management can help you live a more balanced, joyful and healthy life.
Surprisingly, stress itself is not necessarily all bad. In small amounts stress can, in fact, provide extra energy, while keeping us attentive and concentrated during a time of need. However, when the stress reaches too high a level consistently, you can become overwhelmed and lose your ability to function normally.
What are the causes of stress?
There are a wide variety of potential stress triggers, which can include:
- Beginning a new job
- Beginning a new school year
- Bringing a new child home
- Changes in your financial status
- Children launching into college
- Grief and loss
- Health and Chronic Illness
- Infertility or Pregnancy
- Job loss or promotion
- Recently married
- Relationship struggles
