Stress is a reaction, a response to things that may happen to someone throughout the day or their lifetime. It consists of tension, discomfort, physical symptoms. It is caused by stressors that make you become stressed. (Page 457) I think that stress is one of the worst feelings in the world, as I suffer numerous amounts of it due to the fact that I have to balance a ridiculous amount of credits, being a brother in a fraternity, and also being a drummer in the marching/pep bands. No type of stress is alike however. Some happen because of major events that have occurred earlier in a persons life that come back into their mind. Others are caused based on events that are happening currently in a persons life. Stress can happen to anyone and at anytime in a persons life. The key to stress is to learn what your specific stressors are and to learn how to control them.
