当出现意外因素或令人沮丧的经历时，压力就会产生。有许多原则与社区和个人的压力原因有关。压力可以被认为是身体对感知到的威胁的适应或反流反应(Calhoun & Tedeschi, 2014)。根据局势的细微差别，这种威胁可以是内部的，也可以是外部的。它被认为是机体基于生理、社会和心理因素对机体终点的一种复杂防御机制。压力不能简单地认为是刺激驱动的行为(Calhoun & Tedeschi, 2014)。基于这一概念可以得出许多含义。具体的遗传特征、刺激-反应反应、个体在童年时期的经历以及个体基于周围环境的主观感知被认为是导致个体应激发展的因素。由此可见，应激反应是由对触发因素的弹性和脆弱性引起的。研究发现，这与个体的年龄、性别和个性特征有关。压力通常被认为是消极的因素。这就是eustress的概念。
Stress occurs when there is a surprise element or an frustrating experience. There are many tenets associated with the causes of stress in the communities and the individuals. Stress can be considered as an adaptation or reflux reaction by the body towards the perceived threats (Calhoun & Tedeschi, 2014). This threat could be internal or external threat based on the nuances of the situation. It is considered to be a complex defense mechanism by the body towards the endpoint of the body based on the biological, social and the psychological factors. Stress cannot be simply considered to be an action that is stimulus driven (Calhoun & Tedeschi, 2014). There are numerous implications the can be drawn based on this notions. The specific inherited characteristics, stimulus-response reaction, experiences of the individual during childhood phase and the subjective perception of the individuals based on the surrounding are considered to be the factors that lead to the development of stress in individuals. It is perceived that the resilience and the vulnerability toward the trigger factors caused the stress response to be developed. It is found to be dependent on the age, gender and the personality traits of the individuals. Stress is often considered to be a factors that are viewed negatively. There is the concept of eustress.
This leads to the development of positive action and enables the individuals to perform. Intense prolonged stress is found to cause harm to the body and cause the people to develop impaired ability to experience the pleasures. This causes more harm to the body. Everyday hassles and irritations can be leading cause of stresses. It is found to affect the physical health and the emotional wellbeing of the individuals. In the middle of the routine, there is also the life altering changes that do occur. It is found that it is found to be specific based on the environment and the surroundings. During the academic courses, the students experience a different set of stress triggers and it is found to change in the workplace dynamics and is significantly different for the adult population. These trigger points for stress primarily stem from the conflicts or the difference in ideology. This can stem from interpersonal or intra personal relationship. In the case of interpersonal relationship, there is the development of conflicts with the people around each individual. However, the interpersonal stressful triggers are often overlooked in this paradigm.
