Behaviors That Result In Stress

Apr 18, 2008
Do you suffer from extreme levels of stress? Do you often feel burdened by small things that others tend to handle easily? If so, you may have certain behaviors that result in stress. Many people will often point fingers at other people and situations when it comes finding a culprit for the stress that they are experiencing. Many do not stop and consider the fact that they are ultimately responsible for the stress that they experience. However, the truth is, most of the time certain behaviors that WE experience cause OUR stress. It is important that you know and understand these behaviors if you want to take personal accountability, and resolve the stress that you experience.

The first type of behavior is that in which one is negative. We are not talking about the occasional negative thought either. We are talking about negativity that is obsessive in nature. Individuals that experience this type of behavior are often negative towards others in their life, as well as things and situations that they cross paths with. These often see the cup "half empty". As a result of this kind of perception, an individual who experiences this type of behavior is often "half empty" when it comes to life, and overflowing when it comes to stress. If you find that you match this description, it is important to understand that not everything has a negative aspect to it. Work hard to see something positive in everything that you have a negative opinion about, and you will quickly learn that your stress will eventually decline.

The second type of behavior that often leads to high amounts of stress is that in which an individual feels the need to be "perfect" in an obsessive manner. These individuals are often referred to as the "perfectionist". Individuals who suffer from the effects of this type of behavior will try continuously to ensure that things are completed according to THEIR standard. Naturally, this standard is normally set relatively high. Individuals that experience this will find that they impose a lot of stress on their life. In addition to this, this behavior can lead to a high level of low self-confidence. Individuals who do not meet and/or exceed their expectations are often the ones who go through life feeling as if they are failures.

Highly obsessive analytical thinking is another example of a behavior that is considered to be destructive and result in high levels of stress. These types of individuals often review things constantly, or "read" into things. When this happens, the person experiences a lot of stress. Many actually preprogram themselves to act on high levels of stress until they accomplish certain tasks, or finish certain projects. By doing so, they are neglecting themselves of time, enjoyment, and quality of life.

If you suffer from any of these behaviors, it is important that you work to block the behavior in order to effectively reduce the stress that is occurring in your life. The first way that you can do this is to come to terms with the fact that your perception is too harsh, and that it is not necessary to feel and act in the manner that you do. Secondly, make it a point to be both positive and realistic. Third, visit a professional for coping strategies if you are not successful on your own. By doing so, you can quickly alleviate the stress that you experience on a day to day basis.
