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.

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.
Excersize, Eat well, sleep 5-7 hours a night, talk to someone who is educated on stress management.
Air Fresheners - Don't let the commercials fool you. Most air fresheners interfere with your ability to smell by disabling your nasal passages with an oil film or a nerv…e-deadening agent. Common chemicals in air fresheners include formaldehyde (a highly toxic known carcinogen) and phenol (which can cause hives, convulsions, circulatory collapse, coma, and even death). Ammonia is a volatile chemical that can damage your eyes, respiratory tract, and skin. Bleach is a strong corrosive that can damage the skin, eyes, and respiratory tract. NEVER mix bleach with ammonia, as the fumes can be deadly. Carpet and Upholstery Shampoos generally contain highly toxic substances like perchlorethylene (a known carcinogen that damages the liver, kidneys, and nervous system) and ammonium hydroxide (a corrosive that irritates eyes, skin, and respiratory passages). Dishwasher Detergents - Most of them contain highly concentrated chlorine, which is the #1 cause of child poisonings. Drain Cleaners commonly include lye (which can burn skin and eyes, and the esophagus and stomach if ingested), hydrochloric acid (a corrosive eye and skin irritant that damages kidneys, liver, and digestive tract), or tricholoroethane (eye and skin irritant and nervous system depressant). Furniture Polish is highly flammable and can cause skin and lung cancer. It often contains phenol as well as nitrobenzene, which is an extremely toxic chemical that's easily absorbed through the skin. Mold and Mildew Cleaners often contain sodium hypochlorite (a corrosive which can lead to fluid in the lungs) and formaldehyde (a highly toxic, known carcinogen). To clean mold and mildew safely - and to prevent it from coming back - use M-1 House Wash and M-1 Sure Cote Sealant. Oven Cleaner contains lye (sodium hydroxide). Lye is often used to dissolve roadkill dumped in landfills; that can't be healthy. Antibacterial Cleaners often contain triclosan, which is absorbed through the skin and linked to liver damage. Antibacterial soaps may also contribute to the development of drug-resistant bacteria. Laundry Room Products may contain sodium or calcium hypocrite (a highly corrosive agent that can irritate the skin and eyes), hypochlorite bleach (a corrosive that can burn the eyes, skin, and respiratory tract). If exposed to other chemicals, hypochlorite bleach may form chlorine fumes that could be fatal.Toilet Bowl Cleaners may contain hydrochloric acid or hypochlorite bleach.
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.
Losing your house. Making sure your children are satisfied with your lifestyle and daily life. Keeping your children happy. Keeping your job. (if you got a bad boss). Making e…nough money to pay everything.
Some of the most highly regarded and successful life coaches are Martha Beck, Jack Canfield, Michael Neill, Christy Whitman, and Tim Brownson. Life coaches can work with c…lients on finance issues, self-actualization, relationships, career goals, and more.
The first and most important thing to do to manage stress is to identify what is stressful to you and figure out how to cope with it.
NO. Losing a spouse is NOT a "top stressful life event" .... it would be in the "top life traumas" I respectfully disagree. Death of a spouse IS a life event, and in fact, is …#1 on everyone's scale of most stressful life events (it is #1 on life events for adults; death of a parent is #1 for non-adults). Even things that should be happy occasions (vacation, holidays) have a stress rating.
1. divorce / breakup 2. bereavement 3. losing job 4. Wedding planning 5. Work 6. Kids / Family 7. Debt 8. Commuting 9. Studying… for exams 10. Pregnancy

Its god!!! Get real! Jesus saved all of us of our sins! Our father in heaven tells me every day that he put us on this earth for him to enjoy our happiness!!! He loves us …and the most important person that is living is god, jesus! Read the bible!!! He will some day come back to earth and tell everybody that we are saved and that we are loved! We are his princesses and nights! Go get a bible, read it, get baptized, ask for forgiveness, then pray! He loves us and he created us! Answer 2: The most important thing in life is to serve others and be selfless, strive to live by The Golden Rule (a very important moral guideline that is found in all the world's religions), and evolve by improving the most important facet of spiritual development: the ability to love genuinely and deeply.
In science a "cell" is the smallest thing that can do everything needed for life.
