6 Types of Stress

Our personal fitness trainers want to know, do you remember Whac-A-Mole? 

 

You know, the arcade game where a mole keeps popping up in unpredictable spots and it’s your job to smack it on the head?

 

Well, that’s kind of like how stress works.

 

Except you are the mole … and when stress gets out of control, every time you make a move, it keeps bopping YOU on the head.

 

Not only do you feel out of control, but it can also make you feel too tired or distracted to get in a solid workout.

 

Even worse, it can derail your workouts entirely (which sucks, because working out is a great stress reliever).

 

This is why it’s SO IMPORTANT to have a plan to manage stress before it manages you. 

 

We came across this list of 6 different kinds of stress a while ago and thought it was eye-opening. 

 

Since most of us deal with more than one kind of stress at a time, you can see how it really adds up!


  1. Physical stress: bad night of sleep, being sick, hungry, or injured

  2. Mental stress: rough day at work, too many decisions to make, overwhelmed

  3. Emotional stress: feeling guilty, grief, anger, hate, frustration

  4. Social stress: disagreements with others, feeling lonely, etc.

  5. Existential stress: feeling hopeless, wondering what it all means, etc.

  6. Environmental stress: loud noises, unsafe surroundings, hot or cold temperatures, stuck in traffic, etc.

 

Creating a lifestyle that helps you prevent and manage those stresses will help you become more resilient – and can stop stress from getting in the way of your goals.

 

PLUS: the same steps that help you manage stress will also move you CLOSER to your fitness goals.


  • Getting enough sleep

  • Exercise and being active

  • Eating a healthy diet

  • Practicing stress management techniques that work with you (yoga, breathing exercises, etc.)

 

Make time for YOU today! You deserve it.
