Question:

By the time people reach young adulthood, they have an idea of what causes them stress. The text discusses several sources of stress. What sources of stress did the text identify of which you were previously unaware? Has your reading helped you identify any new sources of stress? If so, how could you deal with these?

Answer

Stress is a symptom that totally affects your whole body and your mind. Stress is caused primarily by work and financial problems. On the contrary, stress is not easily confronted, either by prescription or psychiatric treatment. Human beings in general, encounter stress throughout their life. In essence, stress can be related to a number of personal issues. The reasons and the causes of stress can usually be arranged into different categories such as physical, mental and social.

After reading several sources of stress discussed in the text, I came to the conclusion, that the type a behavior is one of the sources of stress that I was previously unaware. This type of stress can very often lead to coronary heart disease, resulting from insecurity and low self-esteem. So far, this reading has helped me identify new sources of stress such as irrational beliefs and type a behavior.

When completing the reading, I was moved to do further research into this subject and I have concluded that stress unlike other diseases of the mind is pervasive and strike human beings who are totally unaware of its effect. This further reading, are so astounding that the general public thought the world is not aware that they suffer stress. Dealing with stress requires professional treatment and nothing else. Also, the only way to have no stress is to be religiously calm like the Buddha, monks for example.

  1. Your answer is pretty good -- until your last two sentences. They are directly contradictory.

    Do you believe that stress must have professional treatment? Or do you think that a person can learn to be calm as Buddhist monks do?

    This site suggests several ways of relieving stress.
