STRESS – uncovering the layers

20131124_120435

Here it is a list of various stresses that affect people everyday:

  • Interpersonal Stress
    All your relationships in your life—work, family, and friends—are either increasing or decreasing your stress levels. Understanding your interpersonal boundaries and preferences can highly influence your stress levels in this category.
  • Nutritional Stress
    Our nutritional habits are strongly influencing our overall stress levels. The old saying, you are what you eat, has never been truer. Today, our many unhealthy food choices help create overweight individuals and even morbid obesity.
  • Health and Activity Stress
    What you do and don’t do are also highly influencing your stress levels. One study suggests that up to 50% of the population is sleep-deprived, causing our bodies to never fully rejuvenate. Regular exercise has been linked to stress reduction and an increased immune system through the additional endorphin production that exercise helps produce.
  • Time-Stress
    Is it just me or have we lost the time margins in our lives? With families plus full-time professions, we no longer have room to maneuver so, when things happen—and they will—you have increased stress related to lack of time margins. Even children are becoming more stressed due to overpacked schedules and demands.
  • Occupational
    Much research has been linked to job-related stress. We must also acknowledge the growing percentage of the population that is now self-employed. Whether you are employed or self-employed, if you don’t enjoy what you do, you will have increased stress.
