5 Causes of Stress
1. For me, grades cause stress because they are a constant reminder that I must work hard now in order to be successful later. It is very complicated and sometimes difficult to remember that everything you do today will reflect how you live in the future.
2. Budgeting my time is another source of stress in my life. As I get older I find it increasingly challenging to maintain equality between what I enjoy doing, and responsibilities or obligations.
3. Lack of sleep is one concept that often triggers stress in my life. Because I am always trying to budget my time between school and work I find sleep to be the one thing that is always sacrificed. One of the fears I have is over sleeping for something important which effectively creates anxiety that leads to an abundance of stress. 4. Spending money is one thing that stresses me out because although I enjoy buying new things and going places, I hate going to work. A lot of the time it is easy to forget that each dollar you spend eventually has to be earned back, and it is quite simple to spend money on unimportant things.
5. Time is the biggest source of stress in my life because it is nearly impossible to grasp the fact that you only have a certain amount of time to live. Trying to be successful while simultaneously fitting in everything you want out of life is very impractical.
