What Causes Stress?

What causes stress? The biggest cause is anything that puts high demands on you or forces you to adjust.

These days there are many causes that are beyond our control such as difficult marriages, demanding jobs or the loss of:

  • financial insecurity,
  • the economy and
  • your health.

Stress is can also be caused by your perception of it. Something that's stressful to you may not faze someone else, they may even enjoy it.

For example you may enjoy training for a marathon whereas someone else may find this extremely stressful.

What causes stress could be a long commute to work. Traffic could make you feel anxious and tense and you may worry that it will make you late for work, whereas someone else may find the trip relaxing because they enjoy listening to their favorite music while they drive.

What causes stress does not only include negative situations, but could also be positive events such as getting married, buying a house, going to college, or receiving a promotion.


According to Holmes-Rahe Life Stress Inventory The Top Ten Causes Of Stress are:
  1. Spouse’s death
  2. Divorce
  3. Marriage separation
  4. Jail term
  5. Death of a close relative
  6. Injury or illness
  7. Marriage
  8. Fired from job
  9. Marriage reconciliation
  10. Retirement

What Causes Stress Could Be Personal

  • Your health, especially if you have a chronic illness such as heart disease, diabetes, or arthritis.
  • Emotional problems, such as anger you can't express, depression, grief, guilt, or low self-esteem.
  • Your relationships, such as having problems with your relationships or feeling a lack of friendships or support in your life.
  • Major life changes, such as dealing with the death of a parent or spouse, losing your job, getting married, or moving to a new city.
  • Stress in your family, such as having a child, teen, or other family member who is under stress, or being a caregiver to a family member who is elderly or who has health problems.
  • Conflicts with your beliefs and values. For example, you may value family life, but you may not be able to spend as much time with your family as you want.
