Time Stress: • Anticipatory Stress: • Situational Stress: • Encounter Stress: • Chronic Stress: Five Main Types of Stress:
Stress caused from lack of time. You worry about all the things you have to do, and when you will be able to do it. • You fear that you'll fail to achieve something important. You might feel trapped, unhappy, or even hopeless. • Common examples of time stress include worrying about deadlines or rushing to avoid being late for a meeting. Time:
Describes stress that you experience concerning the future. • Sometimes this stress can be focused on a specific event, such as an upcoming presentation that you're going to give. • However, anticipatory stress can also be vague and undefined, such as an overall sense of dread about the future, or a worry that "something will go wrong." Anticipatory Stress:
You experience situational stress when you're in a scary situation that you have no control over. • This could be an emergency. • More commonly, however, it's a situation that involves conflict, or a loss of status or acceptance in the eyes of your group. • For instance, getting laid off or making a major mistake in front of your team are examples of events that can cause situational stress. Situational Stress:
Revolves around people. • You experience encounter stress when you worry about interacting with a certain person or group of people – you may not like them, or you might think that they're unpredictable. • Encounter stress can also occur if your role involves a lot of personal interactions with customers or clients, especially if those groups are in distress. For instance, physicians and social workers have high rates of encounter stress, because the people they work with routinely don't feel well, or are deeply upset. • This type of stress also occurs from "contact overload": when you feel overwhelmed or drained from interacting with too many people. Encounter Stress:
Emotional distress — some combination of anger or irritability, anxiety and depression, the three stress emotions. • Muscular problems including tension headache, back pain, jaw pain and the muscular tensions that lead to pulled muscles and tendon and ligament problems. • Stomach, gut and bowel problems such as heartburn, acid stomach, flatulence, diarrhea, constipation and irritable bowel syndrome. • Rapid heartbeat, sweaty palms, heart palpitations, dizziness, migraine headaches, cold hands or feet, shortness of breath and chest pain. Common Symptoms:
This is the grinding stress that wears people away day after day, year after year. • Chronic stress destroys bodies, minds and lives. It wreaks havoc through long-term attrition. • It's the stress of poverty, of dysfunctional families, of being trapped in an unhappy marriage or in a despised job or career. It's the stress that the never-ending "troubles”. Chronic Stress:
Depression • Heart Attacks • Strokes • Constantly Sick Common Symptoms:
