Top 10 Stressors - Causes of Stress

Prevention Magazine once published the following stressors as the 10 most important stress factors affecting people's life.

Sleep and Insomnia
  • 3. Too Many Responsibilities. Who doesn't have that problem? Because companies are always looking at their bottom line, that means that there are fewer employees and each of them now have more responsibilities.

    You can try making a list of all the things you have to do and break them down into smaller, more achievable bite-size responsibilities. For example, if you have a large project due in 6 months, break it down into smaller tasks and assign a specific date for each of these tasks.
  • 6. Children. If you have children, you probably worry about them. You worry about what they eat, what they do, who they hang out with, etc. If you don't have children, you may be stressing out about having one before it's too late. Once again, communication with your children and/or partner may be a good way to reduce stress. At one time or another, you will have to push the little chick out of the nest so that it can learn to fly on its own...
  • 7. Loneliness. For all those single people out there, being lonely can be a major source of stress. Unfortunately, loneliness can also affect people in relationships. You can try to meet new people through clubs and organizations that you care about. Why not volunteering for a good cause? Don't hesitate to turn off the TV and computer and head out in the real world.
