Stressors

Examples of Stressors:

Catastrophes: natural disasters, such as war, hurricane, floods, etc.

Significant life changes: loss of a loved one, loss of a job, divorce, marriage, birth of a baby, illness, moving out of the house for the first time, etc.

Daily everyday stresses: job stress, work overload, etc. These little everyday stresses can add up and lead to emotional and physical burnout. Many nurses, teachers, doctors, social workers, psychiatrists and police officers may be prone to career burnout.

If a person feels like they have some control and input over their life they may handle things in a more positive, productive manner. Optimistic people usually cope better with stress. A perceived loss of control can cause an increase in stress hormones which may have a negative influence on your health.
