In my college stress management book, fighting stress in a changing world, I stress stress as "a holistic transaction between the individual and a potential stress reliever that leads to stress response." This mode of stress definition is combined with three elements of the most recent stresses:
(1) stressors as potential stressors,
(2) transforming the potential stress stress strain involves the transaction between you and the potential stressor in a holistic context, and
(3) The result of the transaction determines whether a physiological stress response is due.
Stress starts with the presence of a potential stressor that is personally threatening and capable of triggering a stress response in you. This potential stress can be a person, place, thing, situation, thought, emotion or body feeling. There are unbeaten stressors. It is important to understand that stress is really just potential stress until you feel it is not threatened and unable to cope with it. For example, a bill is usually not stressful if you have enough money on your current account to pay it. It becomes stressful if you do not know how you will pay or if you know you need to do something else. Often, the potential threat caused by a potential stressor is more ambiguous than previously described, and the discomfort you feel is exposed is partly due to the inability to pull your finger to the discomfort. The threat can be self-esteem, someone to you or other things.
The transaction is a realistic assessment of potential threats. This includes weighing the potential threat of potential stress versus our perceived ability. The gathering involves its own psychological strength as well as external resources. An important fact of stress transactions is that they do not occur in the vacuum. Holistic because they affect their physical, social, mental, emotional, mental, occupational and environmental health when they fall. Your health and wellness status serves as a reference or context for the exposure and assessment of potential stress
The assessment of the potential stress factor is always influenced by the time and place where you were exposed to health and wellness health. That's why it takes the same potential stressor differently when it is next exposed. Not only will he be exposed to him at other times and in different circumstances, he will be a different person (a bit older and wiser, maybe more relaxing, maybe home for a wonderful vacation, etc.).
The last component of the definition is the answer that occurs when you detect a potential stress-threat as a threat and beyond coping. Stress response begins in your brain as it sends messages throughout the body via nerve drives and circulating hormones that trigger a complex response to mobilize energy to fight stress or abuse. This fight or flight response is instantaneous, life-saving, and is the same for every human being in response to any stressor. If combat or aviation is not possible, your body becomes a lower-intensity response that adapts and resists the presence of stress. Over time, if the stressor is not removed or effectively treated, it is exhausted. While the stress response was initially beneficial and designed to avoid life and save life, frequent or continuous activation of the same response can cause serious physical and psychological health problems.
Stress as a holistic phenomenon
is misplaced use and appointment 20 minutes late, such as the holistic nature of stress. Imagine working this morning. Last night he was bitterly arguing with his husband / wife and slept on the couch. There was a gentle sleep and woke up late, painfully back. By late walking out of the house, you forget your briefcase and have no time for breakfast. For your work, buy coffee and egg sandwiches from the local fast food store's drive window. He's still angry with your spouse and you're stuck with running, pulling out the shop without looking at you and jumping to almost another car. You turn around to avoid the other driver and pour hot coffee into your new business outfit you just got last night. Five miles to the 30-mile commute had an accident on the road that had a tractor trailer and a mini van that slowed down traffic. You realize that in 20 minutes he will be late for work and will miss his appointment. Now you are really angry and scream and shout in the accident as you pass it on the highway. He cheats your mobile phone and as you try to drive and dial, call the boss who explains that he will be late for his job. Your ineffective helplessness and inability to overcome the situation give a buzz to trigger a stress response.
Let's look at the same accident and 20 minute delay in different circumstances. Imagine that six months later. You work this morning. Last night she spent a wonderful romantic evening with her husband / wife. Her daughter slept on a boyfriend's house, and the spouse suggested that she play a small tennis court together and then dine and drink late, though it was in the middle of the week. It was a great game for tennis, a wonderful meal, an excellent bottle of wine, and enjoyed the best sex for a long time, knowing that her daughter was sleeping firmly in her boyfriend's house. You slept like a log, and you woke up late, but with a smile on your face.
You're running from the house, but do not forget to stop and give a big marriage and kiss to your spouse. For your work, buy coffee and egg sandwiches from the local fast food store's drive window. Make sure you do not pour coffee as it slowly pulls out the traffic. A car cut in front of you, but you see it coming and you can avoid it without pouring coffee. As you pull it out of the shop, you smile and sing on a radio song. You do not remember when an egg sandwich was so good. After a few minutes you will enter the motorway. Five miles to the 30-mile commute had an accident on the road that had a tractor trailer and a mini van that slowed down traffic. You'll find that it's 20 minutes to work. As you deliver the scene of the accident, sip coffee and I'm grateful you're not in the wreck. You pull it up and call your boss on your cell phone, explaining that it's too late for your job. He calls the person whose meeting he was, apologized and scheduled a new time.
In both situations you threatened the same potentially stressful situation; running behind the run, traffic jams, and 20 minutes late for work and a meeting. He experienced potential stress situations in two different conditions. The time between these circumstances and the two occasions played a role in detecting the potential stressor every time he introduced himself. The first scenario was tired and in a bad mood for the previous evening and early morning events. In those circumstances, they rushed unnecessarily and withdrew. It was very threatening because of the crowding from work and late work, and something she could not cope. In the second scenario, the previous night and early morning events were so great that you felt that they were able to cope with anything. You think more and realize that the unnecessary rush would not be able to work much faster in the morning. Instead of feeling emotional, he felt lucky to be safe in the car while walking the scene of the accident.
Examining a New Approach
Determining stress as a holistic transaction for the individual and potential stressful stress is a completely new way of managing stress. If you see stress this way, you no longer see it as something that is just happening to you and is beyond your control. Stress is more than "bills" or "traffic" or "government". Stress can now be considered to play an active role in understanding and managing. It can boast power as it provides more space to enter and intervene in the transaction. Progress from potential stress to actual stressor and stress response does not have to happen automatically. You play the most important role in determining how it is progressing.
The first intervention mode is to make a fine move in your language. Only by using the possible stress-relieving words, instead of calling them stressors, it will cease to produce stress. It allows you to stop accepting the obsolete belief that certain things are inherently stressful. Universal stressors (things that threaten everyone from everybody) are completely meaningless and are things that you can no longer accept without question.
Another example of how to intervene from a potential stressor to stress response is to create a toolkit with different types of strategies based on your values and work done for you. In stress management approach, students and clients offer different strategies and level attack levels that provide them with all the tools they need to address the endless diversity of potential stressors. Think of each strategy as a resource you have to deal with stressors. The more different resources you have, the easier it is to find one that works against a particular stressor at a specific place and time. After developing such a repertoire for managing successful strategies, he began to trust in his ability to cope with almost all potential stressors. This so-called perceived ability to cope. If you think you will cope with a potential stressor, it will prevent you from being threatened. In other words, if you feel that a potential stress is not a threat and you think it can cope with it, then the stress response can be shortened
Finally, if we understand that stress is holistic, I begin to recognize the important role that health plays the stress response. Since all stressful transactions are influenced by the seven levels of health (physical, social, mental, emotional, mental, work and environmental), the entire wellness level is stress-resistant with the creation of high-level health. High-level health can prevent potential stressors from becoming real stressors by giving you the energy and resources that you need to be accurately measured and properly treated.
