Many people have stress when they need to adapt or change.
Examples are:
  • Starting a new job or losing a job
  • Starting at a new school
  • Moving to a new home
  • Getting married or divorced
  • Having a child
  • Breaking up with someone
An injury or illness to you, a friend, or a loved one is a common cause of stress. Feelings of stress and anxiety are common in people who feel depressed and sad.
When these feelings happen often, a person may have an anxiety disorder. Other health problems that can lead to stress are:
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Panic disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Some medicines may cause or worsen symptoms of stress.
These can include:
  • Some inhaler medicines used to treat asthma
  • Thyroid drugs
  • Some diet pills
  • Some cold remedies
Caffeine, cocaine, alcohol, and tobacco products may also cause or make symptoms of stress or anxiety worse.

Home Care

What relieves stress is not the same for everyone. Making certain lifestyle changes is the best start.
Start with eating a well-balanced, healthy diet as well as getting enough sleep and exercise. Also, limit caffeine and alcohol intake. Do not use nicotine, cocaine, or other street drugs.
Finding healthy, fun ways to cope with stress may help. Learn and practice ways to relax. Find out about yoga, tai chi, or meditation.
Take breaks from work. Balance fun activities with your job and family duties. Schedule leisure time every day. Spend time with people you enjoy, including your family.
Try learning to make things with your hands, playing an instrument, or listening to music.
Think about what might be giving you stress. Keep a diary of what is going on when you have these feelings. Then, find someone you trust who will listen to you. Often just talking to a friend or loved one is all that you need to feel better. Check if your community has support groups and hotlines.
Ask your health care provider if any drugs or medicines you are taking can cause anxiety.
