Psychological Stressors From Everyday Situations
Everyone is at least somewhat familiar with the experience of stress – it is your body’s natural response to an external pressure. If you experience something new, unexpected, threatening, or confusing, your body responds with its internal fight or flight response. Sometimes, this is useful and can keep you safe in a dangerous situation. However, it shouldn’t overtake your life. Specific stressors can take form in a wide range of social and physical circumstances. Beachside Rehab can help you figure out what types of situations in your life are stressors and how you can deal with them in a healthy manner.
Types of Stressors
Stress can stem from any type of everyday situation or major life event. People who deal with anxiety disorders often experience intense feelings of worry about things that others may not consider stressful at all. Stressors differ from person to person, but there are a few common experiences that have an impact on most people’s stress levels:
- Death of a loved one
- Marriage or divorce
- Financial obligations
- Moving to a new home
- Illness or injury
- Traumatic events
Building a Healthy Stress Response
Though our stress is caused by an external stressor, our response is very much an internal experience. We can exacerbate the problem by focusing on it for longer than necessary, having unrealistic expectations, or struggling with a fear of the unknown. It can be exhausting to deal with stress and can even lead to health issues if it becomes a long-term issue. Everyone is susceptible to different stressors and should learn healthy coping mechanisms that work for their unique situation and personality. You shouldn’t be ashamed of what your personal stressors include. Anyone in Florida struggling with the stressors in their life should reach out to Beachside Rehab. Our team of professionals can help you learn more about yourself, your stressors, and how you can safely manage your responses on a daily basis.
