The 4 Most Stressfull Situations

Updated on February 24, 2010

The Famous Four

At some point in our journey of life we will each and everyone of us encounter a stressfull situation, for many its work or family issues but the main 4 stressful situations in life are these:

Birth - Having a baby takes careful planning and is very stressful for the mother and the father, from going to the anti natal classes, choosing the name, finding out what sex the child is, getting furniture for the baby, putting on the weight, cravings right through to having child in the hospital or home birth which is quite common these days, Buying clothes for the baby, maternity leave arrangements, paternity leave Birth is stressfull because you dont whether the child will come early, late,or on time so its a race to get everything ready before the event.

Death - Any loss of family or friends is the worst thing in life, You will go iinto auto pilot it does not get easier, you ease with it, The grieving process is hard, maurning the loss of some one is something you will do for a long time be it a child, husband, wife or parent and friend, You will always have the happy memories of them, they will never go however The stressfull part begins with arranging the funeral and the people who will be there, dealing with the vicar and the eulogy, arranging a tea for the maurners, Informing friends and family of the loss and the persons work, getting the death certificate there are more things that are to be done but these are the hardest ones for any one who has to arrange this.

Marriage - Yes this one is the most stressfull of situations, for those of us who have undergone this we can all sympathesize, You want your big day to be perfect, you need to plan ahead, this is how it starts, you have to either decide on a church or registry office, then put out the bands, then arrange the day of the wedding, then decide on how many guests will attend,then you have to write out the invites, you need to arrange a honey moon if your having one. Transport to the church and venue for the meal, the wedding cake if your having one, The wedding dress, the groomes suit, the brides maids and many more things, it is one of the most stressfull parts of life and yet the actual day goes fast, it is worth all the stress for your special day.

Moving House - This one is the worst of the worst situations ever, I personally have moved house 4 times and can tell you that it is one of the hardest and stressfull scenarios ever. You need to first get the property your moving too, then begin packing asap, mark on the boxes which room ie, kitchen, bedroom etc. Then you need to give notice to your landlord if in rented accomodation, Arrange the day for the move and transport for your things to your property, arrange the time off work. When everything is moved you then have the hard process of unpacking it can be as fast or as slow as you want it but you need to reserve time to do it.When I moved we got all the furniture in place first,but i was living out of boxes for a while untill we eventually got them all put away. (a tip) the first room to do when you move house is the bedroom, simply because you will get tired and that way you have some where to sleep.

      Certainly agreed there alian, there are loads of stressful situations such as what you have mentioned "Or a lot of unnecessary stress at work, due to silly new initiatives - that can be ongoing and lead to long term problems" and that is only the beginning :)

      Or a lot of unnecessary stress at work, due to silly new initiatives - that can be ongoing and lead to long term problems.

      I agree with you about the 4 main ones (including divorce) - is that why most of us can't actually remember being born (I know you were talking from the parents' point of view)?

      I did consider divorce, and it is stressful but the other ones are just as stressful, but your right I might add a hub on divorce. What a good idea. xx :)

      I thought you were going to say birth is stressful for the baby - suddenly being sqeezed, pulled, or cut out of your warm, comfy environment and finding yourself completely helpless in the cold air and bright lights. Did you consider divorce for your top four?
