The Review of difference between “stress” and a stressor:
What is stress? Stress is a normal physical response to events that make you feel threatened or upset your balance in some way when you sense danger whether it’s real or imagined the body defences kick into high gear in a rapid, automatic process known as the “fight-or-flight reaction, or the stress response.
What is stress: Stress is the feeling we have under pressure. We generally use the word “stress” when we feel that everything seems to have become too much. We are overloaded and wonder whether we really can cope with the pressure placed upon us.
Stress is also anything that posses a challenge or a threat to our well being. Furthermore tell us that some stress get us going and they are good for you. Without stress at all my say our lives would be boring and would probably feel pointless. However, when the stresses undermine both our mental and physical health they are bad.
The difference between “stress” and a stressor:
A stressor is an agent or stimulus that causes stress. While stress is feeling we have when under pressure, stressors are also the things we respond to in our environment.
Examples of stressor are as follows:
Noises, unpleasant, people, a speeding care, or even going out on a first date. Generally (but not always), the more stressors we experience, the more stressed we feel.
When we are stressed the following happens:
- Blood pressures rises
- Breathing becomes more rapid
- Digestive system slows down
- Heart rate (pulse) down
- Immune system goes down
- Muscles become tense
- We do not sleep (heightened state of alertness).
Most of us have varying interpretations of what stress is about and what matters. Some of us focus on what happens to us, such as breaking a bone or getting a promotion, while others think more about the event itself. What really matters are our thoughts about the situations in which we find ourselves.
We are continually sizing up situations that confront us in life. We assess each situation, deciding whether something is a threat, how we can deal with it and what resources we can use. It we conclude that the required resources needed to effectively deal with a situation are beyond what we have available, we say that situation is stressful and we react with a classical stress responses. On the other hand, if we decide our available resources and skills are more than enough to deal with a situation, it is not seen as stressful to us.
