Understanding Reasons Of Stress

When looking at the Websters dictionary, you'll see that 'stress' is explained as a 'difficulty that causes worry or emotional tension'. So, you have a triangle of terms that put you in situation you don't want to be in - 'difficulty', 'worry' and 'emotional tension'.

Stress can be exhausting, harmful, and should be avoided or even better - beaten. To become stronger than the stress is taking lots of experience, knowledge and awareness of true problem backgrounds. It's more than several things, that can be seen at certain times, that can be causing it, so the first step in defeating the stress is to accurately spot the real source of issue.

Difficulty

Stress is a difficulty, there's no doubt about it. But, have you thought of a 'difficulty' being cause of the stress? Especially in professional environment, a situation or a task that causes difficulty to you, may be a source of stress. This often occurs when a person gets involved in working on something he/she is not adequately trained or educated for. The complexity or size of the work too large for an individual is a common happening in the world of business. Almost everyone gets in a situation when they're being overwhelmed, and it gets worse when their superiors have perhaps surreal expectations compared to their capacity. Revealing this source of stress is not hard, but it's hard to find a solution to it. There may be many things that aren't into place in this situation, but the first thing one should look at when it happens is to look at what they're doing wrong, or what they're not good at enough, and start working on that. Building yourself on your weaker fields can help you prevent and overcome stress, since you'll have solid background for your actions, which will boost your self-confidence and allow you to complete tasks faster and better.

Worry

Worrying can be a good and a bad thing. Actually, worrying is often asked for, while overworrying is in most cases unwanted and harmful. It's good to care for results of your actions or of those related to you. That way you often get to clues and ideas that help out, after you spot the problem you perhaps wouldn't spot without worrying. Overworrying, though, is often a sign of insecurity and distrust. Situations like that should be avoided if they cannot be mended. Putting yourself in a situation when you have to depend on someone or something you don't trust can bring you nothing but a bad experience. But, perhaps it's a problem you don't trust, but should. It's a matter of healthy estimation here. A realistic snapshot on capabilities of that what's causing the distrust may give you a clearer view on whether you should or shouldn't rely on it. Then find a way to be peaceful and even better with having that on your side, rather than dealing with unnecessary worry due to thinking about or awaiting for the failure to happen.

Emotional tension

Emotions can also be a good and a bad thing. The hardest thing to accept for some people is that emotions are often uncalled for. Some people tend to put their emotions into everything they do, while some simply don't - they do what they're demanded for, do it the best they can and that's it. Both actions have their good and bad sides also. It's just a matter of understanding them and realising the difference of what's the thing you actually want to be doing and should be doing. If you're fond of putting emotions in your deeds, you should be able to see upfront if they'll be respected and even rewarded, or neglected and underestimated. That way you'll know how to position yourself in the actual doing, without feeling disregarded. This can be a source of a lot of stress. Another thing that may happen is that you might find yourself doing something against your moral, which can lead to an extreme emotional exhaustion. The best prevention for this type of stress reasons is really thinking about what you're getting yourself into. Analyze your accompaniment, client, co-operator, or whoever you feel is mistreating or neglecting your valuable emotions, and find the ideal way you'll be behave in the relationship, or how much of yourself you'll put into it. Sometimes less is more.

So, the conclusion may be that when you find yourself in a stressful situation, think of all three sources of it. Perhaps they're all involved in it. After you find the very reason of the stress, you'll easily find a way to work things out and get stronger than it, or even how to prevent it in the future.
