Coping with Stress in Middle
and Late Adolescence
Everyday frustrations cause stress buildup
From the time you wake up until you go to sleep, you may
be confronted with a succession of stressful situations.
Managing to get yourself (and possibly a spouse and children)
out of bed and ready to face the day can be a challenge to
your patience and ingenuity. Driving to school or work can be
a harrowing especially if you are running late. You may
experience frustration in arranging to get the car repaired. You
may face conflicts in school or at work, such as coping with
unrealistic deadlines, equipment failures, or unexpected bad
weather. If part of your job is selling, you may experience
feelings of rejection when most of your customers say “no”.
Problems in our personal life can be devastating
Surviving the normal, everyday stress described earlier can
be difficult. But far more serious and painful circumstances
can create long- term stress. More serious stressful
circumstances may include separation from love ones,
personal illness or illness of a loved one, death of someone
you care about, or conflict with a spouse or close friend. Other
major causes of stress are problems with drug and alcohol
abuse, domestic violence, care of children and elderly
relatives, chronic mental illness, injury, physical handicaps,
and even moving to a new home, if you have lived in the
same place for more than 10 years. The list goes on.
Managing your personal finances can be another stressful
experience. This can be a problem no matter your income
level, but it is especially difficult if you must support a family
and do not earn enough to live comfortably. Unpaid bills,
unwise use of credit, and budget limitations can make life
difficult.
A common cause of stress is dealing with life’s
transitions
• This is especially true when a person must cope With Too many
transitions all at once. For example, Ellen Has just completed a
program in fashion merchandising. She is eager to get started
on her new job. Her mother is ill and requires care. Her father
died a few months ago. Ellen’s New job requires that she
relocate To a town 100 miles from home. The move, a new
career, and a change in family relationship may cause excessive
stress for her. Too many changes have arrived at the same
time.
Stress Response
• Your stress response is the collection of physiological
changes that occur when you face a perceived threat-when
you face situations where you feel the demands outweigh
your resources to successful cope. These situations are
knows as stressors.
When you stress response is triggered, a series of changes
occur within your body. They include the following.
• Redirection of blood away from extremities and
instead to major organ.
• The release of cortisol and other hormones, which
bring other short-and long-term changes.
• The stress response is intended to give you a burst
of energy so you are able to fight off attackers or run
away from them effectively.
• This help our ancestors,who faced numerous
physical threats, to stay safe.
• However, now our threats tend to be less physical and
more associated with our way of life-a challenge to out
status, a demand for performance, etc. In addition to
giving us a set of changes that may not match our needs
as well (it might be more effective for us to have a burst
of mental clarity or wisdom than a burst of physical
strength, for example), the stress response can actually
cause harm if it lead to a state of chronic stress- that is,
if our stress response is triggered, and then our body
doesn't go back to its normal state via the relaxation
response.
