By | source:Here Aug 20th, 2023

Stress is a fact of life. We all experience it. Some more than others. Stress can come from many different sources and affect us in different ways. Here’s a list of 12 types of stress:

Physical Stress

This type of stress is caused by physical activity, injury or illness.


Mental Stress

Mental stress is a form of anxiety that can be caused by a number of different factors. It can be caused by work, family, finances, relationships and other life situations. Mental stress often leads to depression or other mental health issues if it’s not managed properly.


Emotional Stress

Emotional stress can be caused by a wide variety of factors, including: Relationships. When you have a strained relationship with your partner or family member, emotional stress can be inevitable. For example, if you’re having trouble communicating with someone in your life and feeling like they don’t care about what’s going on with you, this can cause high levels of anxiety and stress. Family matters. If there are issues within the family unit–your parents are getting divorced, for example–it may feel like things are out of control as well as stressful for everyone involved (and maybe even yourself). Work life balance issues also contribute significantly to emotional stress because it can feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day to accomplish everything that needs doing at work while also taking care of personal responsibilities outside work hours; however this problem can usually be resolved by adjusting priorities so that more time is allocated towards essential tasks such as sleeping or eating regularly rather than trying desperately hard just so others think highly enough about them despite knowing deep down inside themselves.


Social Stress

Social stress is the most common type of stress, and it’s caused by being in a situation that you’re not comfortable with. It could be anything from going on a first date or speaking in front of an audience to meeting someone new at work. The main symptom of social stress is feeling nervous or anxious about something you have to do or say. You might feel like there’s no way to get out of what’s making you uncomfortable–even though there are many different ways!


Psychological Stress

Psychological stress is the result of internal conflict. It can be caused by an external event, or it can arise from your own thoughts and feelings. Examples of psychological stress include: guilt, self-doubt and low self-esteem. An example of psychological stress arising from an external event would be if you have just been fired from your job. You are feeling stressed because this was not expected and now you have no income coming in to support yourself or your family members. This type of stress can also happen when there is a death in the family or someone close to us goes through something traumatic like rape or violence against another person (even if that person isn’t related). These events put us into fight mode where our bodies release hormones like adrenaline which prepare us for action so we are ready to defend ourselves against whatever threat might come along next! But sometimes we get stuck in “flight” mode without realizing what’s going on–and this could lead down a path towards depression later down life’s road.


Financial Stress

Financial stress can be caused by a variety of factors, including debt, lack of money and not having enough money to pay bills. For example: You may have taken on too much credit card debt to buy things that you couldn’t afford. You may be struggling to make ends meet with your current income or salary level. This is especially true if you have children or other dependents that require additional expenses such as diapers and formula milk (or food in general). If you’re self-employed and haven’t been able to generate enough business for yourself lately — which makes sense considering what we’ve been hearing about the economy lately!


Spiritual Stress

Spiritual stress is when you are not living in accordance with your values, and it can lead to anxiety, depression and other mental health issues. For example: If you have a strong spiritual belief that tells you not to lie but sometimes find yourself lying anyway because it’s easier than telling the truth — this would be considered spiritual stress. In order for us humans to thrive we need to align ourselves with our core values at all times. In order for this alignment process to work properly we must first identify what our core values actually are (not just something superficial like “I value money” or “I want everyone around me all the time”). Once these deeper values are identified we must then ask ourselves how often do I act in accordance with these core beliefs? If there is little or no consistency between what I believe/value versus how often these beliefs/values come up in my daily life then chances are high that some sort of spiritual conflict exists within yourself which could potentially lead down dark paths such as depression etc.


Interpersonal Stress

Interpersonal stress is when you have problems in your relationship. The most common causes of interpersonal stress are communication problems, money issues or infidelity. Other factors that can contribute to interpersonal stress include trust issues, incompatibility and more.


Professional Stress

Professional stress is caused by your job. It can be connected to your career, or it can be caused by the workplace. Professional stress is a result of a lack of personal growth and development.


Drama King(aka Drama Queen)/Pretender(aka Pretendee) Stress

If you’re a Drama King or Queen, you can be the center of attention and the life of the party. However, if someone is trying to control you, it could lead to stress. That’s why it’s important for Pretendees; people who pretend they don’t care about anything but are actually very sensitive to learn how to cope with their emotions effectively so they don’t let drama get in their way.


Stress is a normal part of life and can actually be beneficial to us. It helps us cope with difficult situations, but too much stress can become harmful. A good way to manage your stress levels is by exercising regularly and practicing mindfulness techniques like meditation or yoga. You should also try to avoid getting caught up in drama because it only makes things worse!
