Stress occurs as a result of an imbalance between our level of ability to cope and the demands placed upon us. Our level of ability to cope is the resources we have to cope with life demands i.e. Health, Skills, Experience, Beliefs, Emotional Make-up, Attitudes. The demands come from many areas of our everyday life i.e. Work, Family, Social, Financial, Change. It is similar to a set of weighing scales: on one side of scales is level of ability to cope and on the other side is the everyday life demands. If demands on you outweigh your personal coping strategies you will be out of balance and you can become stressed.
