Fear is the emotion you experience when you are actually in a dangerous situation. Anxiety is what you experience leading up to a dangerous, stressful, or threatening situation. You may also experience anxiety when you think about something stressful or dangerous that could happen to you. Stress’s response is sometimes very strong and sometimes it’s too weak to handle it that’s when you need help exactly.

    Correct – C


    What is Stress?

    Stress is what you experience when you believe you cannot deal effectively with a threatening situation. If you see an event or situation as only little challenging, you probably feel only a little stress; however, if you recognize a situation or event as threatening or overwhelming, you probably feel a lot of stress.

    Stress is your body’s way for reacting to any sort of interest. It can be caused by both great and awful experiences. At the point when people feel worried by something going ahead around them, their bodies respond by discharging chemicals into the blood. These chemicals give people more energy and strength, which can be something worth being thankful for if their anxiety is caused by physical danger. But this can also be a bad thing, if their stress is in response to something emotional and there is no outlet for this extra energy and strength.

    So, having to wait for a bus when you have all the time in the world triggers little stress. Waiting for that same bus when you are late for a plane that will take off without you triggers much more stress.

    This difference between the demands of the situation and your approach of how well you can deal with that situation is what determines how much stress you feel.

    You may feel strong emotions for lots of reasons. You may be angry about something. You may be nervous about an interview or speaking in public. You may be afraid of being hurt by someone or of failing in something, you really want to do. You can be excited about something and still feel stressed. You may feel that you just have too much to do. Also, it does not matter how old you are either, stress affects everyone.

    Sources of Stress

    We can experience stress form four basic sources:

    Social Stress – Social stress is stress that results from relationships with others. When people experience too much social stress, they might feel symptoms such as headaches, rapid heart rate, and dizziness, a tight feeling in the lungs, depression, and severe anxiety. For many, it is stress that seems to never be relieved, and the symptoms just seem to become a part of life.

    Environmental Stress – Stressors that are found in our surroundings are called environmental stressors. Everyday life is full of environmental stressors that cause minor irritations. If you use an alarm clock to wake up, the loud noise from your alarm is an environmental stressor. Extreme temperatures are also environmental stressors and can lead to discomfort. Other common environmental stressors include:

    • Noise
    • Crowding
    • Air quality
    • Colors
    • Tornadoes and other natural disasters
    • War and other manmade disasters
    • Light
    • Insects


    Health Worries – The stress caused by health worries would itself be able to prompt issues and the body’s response to push, General Adaptation Syndrome, can have physical impacts as we drain our energy and strength stores to adapt to an unpleasant circumstance.

    Fear and uncertainty – When you regularly hear about the threat of terrorist attacks, global warming, and toxic chemicals on the news, it can cause you to feel stressed, especially because you feel like you have no control over those events. And even though disasters are typically very rare events. Fears can also hit closer to home, such as being worried that, you won’t finish a project at work or won’t have enough money to pay your bills this month.

    Types of Stressors

    Short-term stressors are those that cause stress but will eventually be solved. We will not have to deal with these exact stressors for the rest of our lives, especially if we can learn to deal with them effectively.

    Acute Stressors

    A car running out of gas or missing work due to a cold are examples of acute stressors. Acute stressors can happen quite frequently, but it is important to keep in mind that they will come to an end.

    Personal & Non-Personal Stressors

    Personal or non-personal stressors simply cannot be controlled. Being stuck in traffic or rain on your wedding day cannot be helped. Harboring frustration and grudges over things that are out of your control is not in the best interest of your health. There is no need to expend energy and emotion, especially when it will not change the situation!

    Trigger Stressors

    Trigger stressors are reminders of past stress that is now producing a renewed stress response. An example of a trigger stressor would be if you got in a traumatic car accident. Passing the street where the scene occurred or seeing damaged cars may bring back this stress.


    Thought Stopping Techniques

    You recognize that there’s nothing you can do about your worry and that your worrying is only making things worse. You would be better off if you could somehow stop thinking about this. But how?

    That is where a technique called thought stopping can be useful. It is an effective way of keeping repetitive worries and upsets temporarily out of your mind, and it is also effective in weakening those thoughts, making it less likely that they will return.

    Concentrating on two things at the same time is hard. So if your mind is flooded with distressing thoughts, change course. Find something else, a “wanted” thought you actually enjoy thinking about.

    Write down your unwanted thoughts – On a piece of paper, write down three or four thoughts that repeatedly trigger distress. It could be an upsetting memory (your embarrassment when you said something dumb at a meeting), a future fear (an upcoming dental visit), or an imagined anxiety (a plane crash).

    Think of some pleasant replacement thoughts – Write down three or four pleasant, happy thoughts you may have, such as taking a great vacation, achieving a long-term goal, skiing down a mountain, shopping — any pleasant experience, past or future. Keep these pleasant thoughts in your memory so you can easily bring them into consciousness.

    Focus on an unwanted thought – Find a place where you will be undisturbed for about 20 minutes. Sitting or lying comfortably, take some deep breaths and relax your body as much as you can. Close your eyes and select one of your unwanted thoughts. (Do not choose your most distressing thought at the beginning. You will get to the tougher ones later.)

    Get into your distressing thought using all your senses — what it looks like, feels like, and so on. Hold onto that unwanted thought for a bit.

    Yell stop! – Yell out the word “stop.” At the same time, picture a red-and-white hexagonal stop sign — you know, the kind you see on the street corner. Make your sign large and vivid.
