Stress is quite difficult to pin down and explain but when we say something is stressful or that “I feel stressed” we could be talking about; situations or events that put pressure on us or our reaction to being placed under pressure.
Feeling stress can show physical signs such as tiredness, headaches, disturbed sleep, guilty feelings, thinking negatively and many more.
Why do certain things make me feel stressed?
The amount of stress we feel can be different due to our own perception of the situation, how we deal with pressure and our emotional resilience. This is different for everyone and is good to remember if someone says they feel stressed, but you don’t understand why.
Stress can be managed by understanding and managing external pressures and developing your own emotional resilience.
