what is the opposite of background stressor?
I Googled "background stressor" to get this information:
Usually stressors are categorized into three main groups:
·Cataclysmic stressors – earthquakes tornados terrorist attacks, etc..
Personal stressors - death of the relative, loss of job, etc..
Background stressors ( daily hassles)- traffic jam, standing in line, etc..
In the future, you can find the information you desire more quickly, if you use appropriate key words to do your own search. Also see http://hanlib.sou.edu/searchtools/.
The opposite of background stressors (daily hassles) are uplifts. These are those positive little things that make us feel good.
