Everywhere, anytime we look, people today are more stressed out than ever. Many exceeding their limit and giving up on themselves. Stress is a very common problem being faced today and people of all ages are being affected. “Stress, it is argued, can only be sensibly defined as a perceptual phenomenon arising from a comparison between the demand on the person and his or her ability to cope. An imbalance in this mechanism, when coping is important, gives rise to the experience of stress, and to the stress response” (Cox ,1978).
Hence, stress comes when the body tries to respond to such threats. However, causes of stress are either due to good or bad experience. In addition, different studies show that stress can either be healthy or unhealthy to an individual depending on its type. Causes of Stress Notably, people of all ages experience stress. That is school children, working adults and the elderly as well.
Having so much to deal with at such a young age truly is hard. Most teens do not realize things like anxiety that they might be dealing with. Students especially often get submerged with something that might not be that big and make it bigger than it should be. For example, something as simple as a research paper can turn into days of stress and worry for a student. It is clear that teenagers have these issues since, “The report warns that teens are at risk of a variety of physical and emotional ills” (Jayson np).
Stress and Coping Stress is an interesting subject for me. It seems to me that my entire life I have experienced copious amounts of stress. So much so, that I rarely realize that many things I find normal are highly abnormal to many other people. However, with the end of the semester quickly approaching I have noticed my stress escalating to noticeable level. My three biggest stressors right now are my grades, money, and my living situation.
APN’s and PMHNP students have frequently experienced stress. Preparing to make the endeavor to participate in the APN program is in itself stressful. Deciding how to balance work, family, life, with school brings anxiety and many stressors. Raising funds or figuring out how to pay for school is an additional major stress factor. APN schools can cost on average $15,000 to 40,000 per year.
Chapter 2: What causes stress around us What is Stress? As human beings, stress is a natural part of life and we all experience stress whether we like it or not, it is a simple fact of life.

“The beginnings are sometimes scary, endings are usually sad, but it’s the middle that counts most” That is true for a lot of things in everyday life, like starting school. Many young people see going to school as a chore and only go because they absolutely have to, while some will even skip school because they see it as boring and unnecessary. However, going to school is incredibly important for your career, future education, social and communication skills. When I first got to high school everything was strange, scary and new, for the first time there were new people to meet as well as new teachers. There was now also a lot more work and homework.
