In our last blog, we began talking about stress and sleep. We noted that stress can cause insomnia and poor sleep. We addressed what stress is, as well as the forms of stress. Today, we’ll be talking about some of the most common causes of stress. Again, if stress is stealing you away from sawing logs at night, a natural sleep aid supplement from NutraBulk may just be the perfect solution. So, what causes stress?

The Common Causes of Stress

Stress can rear its ugly head for a variety of reasons. Most commonly, we get stressed due to pressures at work, poor health or illness, relationship problems or loneliness, money woes, fears and uncertainties, and change. Let’s dig a little deeper into each of the aforementioned stressors to unravel a bit more about stress.

  • Work Related Stress

Work related stress can crop up due to a lack of fulfillment; it can be due to a feeling of being overburdened; it can be due to a dangerous environment or an unattractive environment; it can be due to coworker conflict; it can be due to the threat of being fired. Whew. Work can certainly cause stress, and it’s valuable to be aware of this source of stress.

  • Health Related Stress

If you’re suffering an ailment, you may undergo stress. Injuries and illnesses, especially serious ones, can be a strain on your body and brain. Coping with an injury or illness can be difficult, and stress may be the outcome.

  • Social Stress

Do you have troubles with your spouse? Are you struggling to find a partner? Has a rift formed between you and a close friend? Humans are social creatures, and we long for human contact. Without a healthy social life, we can become stressed.

  • Financial Stress

Money woes can preoccupy the mind. If you find yourself living paycheck to paycheck, struggling to make ends meet, the thought of finances can be a major stressor.

  • Fears & Uncertainty

Any fears can cause stress. Whether it’s fear of divorce or fear of heights, your fears can make you anxious, uncomfortable, and stressed. The same is true of uncertainty. The future, for instance, is so uncertain. That can be a scary concept, and it’s liable to cause stress in any individual.

  • Change

Similarly, change can create stress. Major life changes - including a move, a breakup, or the death of a friend - can cause stress in your life. Even minor changes, such as a flat tire, can begin to get your blood boiling. Change can be good, or it can be taxing, trying, and tough.

In short, there are a vast variety of stressors in our lives. The world can be a stressful place, and it may seem impossible to find a moment to relax.
