The Two Faces Of Stress

Before you can learn how to manage stress and eliminate it from your life, you’ll first need to know how to recognize it when it appears.  This first article reveals the two most common types of stress and provides you with some examples of each.

Acute Stress

This type of stress is sudden, occasional, or brief.  You’ll typically experience a sharp spike in your body’s reactions, but the experience of it does not stay with you for long or the stressor itself goes away quickly. Some examples of acute stress are:

  • being late for an appointment
  • getting stuck in traffic,
  • being yelled at,
  • having someone surprise you,
  • going on a roller coaster,
  • being given a difficult short-term task,
  •  public speaking,
  • performing,

Chronic Stress

This type of stress is the kind of stress you might not notice until you hit a physical, emotional, or psychological tipping point or threshold that has built up over time. For example,

  • constant fighting in a marriage or relationship,
  • health problems and illness,
  • financial problems (e.g., debt, negative cash flow),
  •  physical limitations, societal issues (living in a dangerous neighborhood),
  •  work-related difficulties (can’t find a job, difficult manager, difficult co-workers),
  • starting a new business

Acute stress and chronic stress – neither one is particularly healthy for our minds or bodies. Fortunately, there are ways to mitigate, avoid, or diminish the effects of acute stress and chronic stress –and, I’ll share them with you in part two!
