My goal is to help people and businesses understand what causes stress. In my books, Stress Management, Stress & Anxiety, The Art of Being Happy, and Self-Control, I explain in depth what causes stress and how to use stress management techniques to improve your life.
People with certain genetic characteristics have a greater chance of developing stress-related diseases, mental health problems, and death. People with certain personality traits (especially anger and fear) are also at a higher risk. This is because the traits are more prevalent in certain people, who may experience high levels of stress in their lives. Some people have a higher likelihood of developing certain stress-related diseases than others.
There are many things that cause stress, but the main source of stress is your own thoughts, fears, and emotions. People experience stress when they are feeling anxious, disappointed, or ashamed.
If you experience excessive amounts of stress, you may have problems controlling your thoughts, feelings, or actions.
