What Causes Stress?
We may think of stressful events as unpleasant ones, such as losing a job or having difficulties at home or at school. But changes for the better can also cause stress, like a new baby, a wedding, and a new house.
In an ideal world, maybe we could get away from stressful situations, or change them. Too often we can't do that - but we can learn to control our response to those situations. And we can develop techniques that will reduce the effects of stress on our mental and physical health.
Here are some different life events that are identified as stressful. They are rated on the "Holmes-Raye" scale, which scores them according to the stress they cause (the higher the number, the greater the stress).

We had a lot of fun during teambuilding activities. Both Consultants En Ismail and En Hisham were very good at keeping us awake by carrying out team-games as well as making and telling jokes. In one session our team had to share some experience during office management and also family life.
