stress indicators

hello pretty people who still read my blog even though 'i;m a terrible blogger. i had this idea for a blog post, and its the first time i haven’t forgotten an idea right after thinking about it, that i thought i might as well blog about it then only study. heheh. confusing? =)

so my idea of today’s blog post is stress indicator.

so let’s get the scientific part set first. stress refers to the consequence of the failure of an organismhuman or animal – to respond appropriately to emotional or physical threats, whether actual or imagined. Physiologists define stress as how the body reacts to a stressor, real or imagined, a stimulus that causes stress.

confusing much? in other words, stress is what you feel when u do not respond correctly to emotional or physical threat whether real or fake. clearer? =)

tumblr_l0yqxzxSU21qb6t6wo1_500_largeso i’m not going to do into much details about the stress part. if your in SAM psychology, you should know by now what is GAS and all. if you do not, there are many ways to classify stress, and to see how our body adapts to different stressful situations. but they’re more confusing, so i’ll just mention the indicators that i came up with after research. =)

the following are stress indicators, mental and physical   


1. Problems with memory
2. Inability to concentrate
3. Poor judgment
4. Racing thoughts
5. Moodiness
6. Agitation
7. Irritability
8. Sense of isolation/loneliness
9. Constant worrying

10. Viewing everything as negative
11. Restlessness
12. Quick temper
13. Sense of being overwhelmed
14. General unhappiness
15. Loss of objectivity
16. Always being fearful
17. Anxiousness
18. Indecisiveness
19. Inability to relax
20. Feeling on edge

2. Muscle tension
3. Nausea
4. Insomnia
5. Acne breakout

14. Nail biting or pacing
15. Excessive spending
16. Tooth grinding
17. Excessive exercise
18. Overreactions
19. Sleeping too much or too little
20. Starting fights

so if you have one of the above indicators? DON’T WORRY SO MUCH.

deal with the stress in a way that would help you the most, e.g relaxation methods, exercise, social activities, or if your restless go do some charity! deal with the stress before it gets to you, you either become a very depressed person, or a nervous wreck. =p

btw, the indicators are very partial, some of them also apply to how we feel during a normal day. so it might not be stress.

didn’t know stress was so complicated until i started blogging about this, then all the information came flooding in. before i end, i wanna tell you about my stress indicators! the first one is. ZITS. i know everybody gets them, most of the friends i have who see me on a daily basis always scoff when i say i have a pimple. but its true! photographic evidence,.

09102010240 see nose! i have a zit. i can roughly estimate where my zits will turn up on my face. if i draw a line to divide my face into half, my pimples would be along that line. yes, my pimples like to be geometrical. hehe

second indicator? dandruff!. when i get stressed, i get loads of dandruff, like im shedding skin like that. no fun. TT. thats why i don’t really wear that much black nearer to exam times. hahaha. =)
