There are different types of stress or causes. One kind of stress is family stress. All families have times when things are tense, and communication is difficult. There are the minor stressors- like someone forgetting to carry out the garbage or using up all the hot water while showering, and there are major stressors, like bankruptcy, buying a new home, a child going off to college, etc. The best way to address stress in a family is to take the time to communicate, talk to one another and listen to one another. A family that engages in fun activities or has relaxation time together has more to draw upon when the times are tougher. Make your family a priority in your life.
Another type of stress similar to family stress is relationship stress. This can include those who are married and those who are single. Romance is wonderful, but it is also a demand on your time and energy. A bad relationship can affect your sleep, appetite, and even your ability to work. If you are involved in a relationship, whether romantic or not, that you find yourself worrying about regularly, it might be time to really evaluate the value the person is bringing to your life.
Health Stress: Stress and health are tied directly together. Stress and how we cope with it can wear on our health. In addition, the discomfort and frustration of feeling physically less than 100% due to an illness, injury, or health condition can cause more stress. Caretakers of people who are ailing also experience a large amount of stress. It is important for both people with health issues and those they love to ask for and allow help to deal with stress. Other types of stress include; travel or commuting, environmental, life changes, and work stress.
