The three categories of stress
1. Ongoing low-level stress – it is the concern of our daily lives, when we get annoyed with the heavy traffic, with the people that surrounds us, and with the decision to make everyday.
2. Unfinished tasks – it is the stress when faced with a series of tasks that is difficult to meet the demands like workloads, cramming for work, hectic schedules.
3. Major life events – it is when there are big changes that will happen in your life like natural disasters, death of a relative, looking for a job, going to college, pregnancy and etc.
On the other hand, when we are stressed out for a long period of time means that we are experiencing chronic stress that is why this type of stress weakens the immune response and could also lead to mental anxiety and depression. It also increases the risk of heart disease and even cancer. It decreases the number of T cells – a kind of white blood cell that is important for immune defenses.
|What stressed you out?|
When we are under stress, hair often fall out where it lasts up to three months after a stressful event but there’s nothing to worry as it will grow back six to nine months and the other common symptoms of stress is when we cannot sleep within thirty minutes as we go to bed.
As an advice, if the stress level does not improve after one month, run to your therapist to prevent depression.
