What is physical stress and what is psychological stress?

Physical stress arises as a result of our body’s response to physical stressor like work, noise, illness, exercise etc while psychological stress occurs when our mind perceives an inability to cope with a "challenge" of some kind. Very often, both types of stress will interact with one another to produce more stress.

There are 5 typical components of psychological stress:

  1. Pressure: This is a common complaint in today’s busy lifestyle where we cramp so much activity within a limited time frame.
  2. Frustration: When we can’t achieve what we want, frustration sets in.
  3. Conflict: When we have to make a choice between 2 alternatives
  4. Threat: When you feel the presence of an impending danger
  5. Loss: When you feel you have lost your safety, hope for the futureand your sense of control over your own lives.

Psychological stress usually goes hand in hand with physical stress. If you are unwell, you are unable to do things you normally can do and this may cause frustration. Prolonged psychological stress can cause physical changes in the body. It can lower your immune system and make you vulnerable to disease. These are some signs and symptoms of psychological stress showing up months or years following a traumatic event.
