Stress causes are numerous. The list below is based roughly on the severity of the stress relating to the cause. However, we are all different and some of us can be deeply stressed from some of the causes at the bottom of the list.
We are also 'wired up' differently. In other words some of us can cope more effectively than others. In a way we could say that - it is not what happens in life it is our reaction to what happens in life. This really determines how we cope. How we react.
Is it possible to be more positive and withstand the pressures of stress? I believe we can, but we have to work hard at it. We have to love and respect ourselves. We have to take quality time out for ourselves. We have to relax and meditate away the symptoms of stress. We have to prevent rather than fight stress.
