What are the top 5 most stressful things in life?
The top five most stressful things include... Work "At least one in six people find their job or working conditions so stressful that they suffer from mental health problems or take regular sick days just to cope – in fact, work stress is responsible for an estimated 10.5 million sick days ever year. You’re most likely to suffer from work-related stress if you work in the public sector, have a professional or managerial post or if you’re a teacher, nurse or other medical practitioner. Other jobs that jeopardise your mental health are those in security positions, such as police or prison officers or those in the armed forces. The main stressful factors? Not having enough support, not knowing exactly what is expected of you, tense work relationships and high work demands. Another big worry in the workplace is an effort-reward imbalance – high demands yet low security, few career opportunities and little reward." Debt High levels of debt and debt stress can be bad for your health. People with higher levels of stress about their debt have worse health, studies have found. In addition, people with a higher proportion of their income tied up in debt also showed higher levels of physical impairment. Loneliness A recent study found that loneliness causes more stress than credit card debt and work pressures combined, with six million singles regularly losing sleep over loneliness. In fact, more than half of the UK’s singles say that feeling alone is their biggest stress, according to online dating service PARSHIP.co.uk. By comparison, only one fifth (18%) of singles, cited financial problems, including credit card debt, as a cause of stress, and the same percentage put blame on work pressures. Only 7% mentioned family problems, and 3% illness. Moving House The very thought of moving house can fill people with dread – and experts say that as the most expensive and life-changing financial transaction most people ever undertake, it’s probably also one of the most stressful. Moving house stress is often caused by choosing the wrong solicitor, so make sure you find the right person for you before you even start looking for property to avoid a stressful rush, plus when you do find a great property, you’ll be able to proceed immediately. Avoid “cheap deals” - this could mean that they are dealing with huge numbers of clients, which will more often than not result in a slow service. Relationship Problems Marriage and other relationship stresses are a massive cause of stress and are associated with increased risk for coronary heart disease. And among women with heart disease, the risk of having a heart attack is increased 3 fold for those who experience severe stress in their marriages or live-in relationships, far more so than other types of stress, including that caused by work.Several studies have come to the surprising conclusion that marriage protects against the effects of stress. People in solid relationships, who feel supported, simply suffer less anxiety, depression and fatigue than the average single, widowed or divorced person. A stable relationship, it is argued, provides a shoulder to cry on and a form of emotional support.

Usually when stressful/painful things occur in your life people can't take it and they start doing stupid things such as •drugs•alcohol etc Well you shouldn't do that …because that's just leading you in the wrong direction.Me,i believe God is the answer to all our prayer-questions. You beg,pray and nothing happens and you just give up. Well our great Lord is to listening to us. He feels everything we feel, he breaths everything we breath and just when you're feeling no one is there think again because you may not see it but he's standing right there next to you. If you're a person that's going through this unessesary stress in your life i suggest you seek more of our Father,at least that's what he deserves. And to think that he gave up his one and only son just to save dozens of peoples future sins scar me because yet still people dont see of how much pain and suffer he's been through. This do happen for a reason and sometimes its just a sign that its time :]

In my opinion, most key stress points linked to adults have to do with the slowly decreasing amount of life. As their children grow up and desert them to live their own lives …and the adults constant working. Here is my top six list (Sorry, these were the only problems I've come across): 6. Working hours becoming too tough to handle as you get older. 5. Changes throughout the body due to ageing causing you to be incapable at some things you may have been able to do before. 4. General stress over everything and every problem you may face in life e.g. Worried about your future. 3. Often the community you live in may affect you greatly as a person gets older, they tend to enjoy living in quieter places. You may also be affected by the climate of where you live. 2. The fact that their children will soon move out, pursue a career and leave to make their own families in one of the most stress causing actions towards adults. 1. The though of life becoming more limited as they get older and everyday they become closer to passing away.
I find the most stressful things about catering are: 1. Making sure you have everything you need from all the food right down to the butter knife, you are constantly thinking… of things you dont want to forget and upcoming events can create a few sleepless nights. Make lists! Walk yourself through the whole dinner/lunch and make sure you have included all the supplies you will need. Carry extra supplies with you in the event that serving spoons are dropped and need to be replaced extra sterno etc. 2. Employees not showing up for work when you have an event and you are counting on them to help with cooking and on site serving and setting up. Always have a back up plan. 3. Traffic - being on time to an event can be hindered by rush hour, weather conditions, accidents on your route to an event which may slow down your commute. Keep up on your vehicle maintainance, you want to prevent a breakdown if you can, because it usually happens when you don't have time to spare. Again, back up plan! 4. Cash flow, when you are first starting out, trying to maintain a good cash flow to cover costs while you are waiting to be paid for previous events. You will want to purchase things you need to run your business, but don't leave yourself too short of cash on hand. 5. Long hours and little sleep. Catering looks easy, but there is so much more than just cooking... there is shopping, organizing your needed supplies as well as prep. This can take a lot of time! You may need to go to more than one store and may spend hours gathering your supplies. If you want to have food delivered to your kitchen, you end up paying a fair bit more. No matter how ahead of the game you think you are, its the last hour or so before you need to leave your kitchen that creates the most stress. Everything will be ready at the same time, so multi-tasking and good time management are a must.Also, be prepared to go for weeks without any time off, especially when you are starting out and need to do most of the work yourself.
The most stressful part of one's life might be the first year after the birth of a child or a time period when money is very scarce. Stress might also come from a sickness or …from the death of a friend or family member.
