How Do You React in Times of Stress?

How Do You React in Times of Stress?
Are you able to remain positive through difficult times -- be it the economy, job stress or simply life in general? There are three general types of people, as defined by how they react to stressful situations: optimists, pessimists and the ever-resourceful. Which type are you? Your Sun sign may hold the answer!

Aries trusts that their guardian angel -- or their own initiative -- will come to the rescue in tough times. The Ram enjoys the thrill of risk, so these folks don't become too jittery when times get rough.

Taurus believes that if they stand still long enough, the world will come to its senses. However, the Bull gets edgy if they're expected to adapt to new situations in a hurry.

Gemini is good at detaching themselves from hysteria. They're also highly adaptable, but can be more nervous than they appear -- which can overstress them when uncertainty goes on too long.

Cancer gets uptight when their well-balanced life is threatened. And being a super-sensitive sign, they tend to soak up others' worries. They protect themselves by disappearing into their shells in an attempt to shut out the woes of the world.

If there's a risk that tough times will infringe on Leo's lifestyle, they're likely to become quite anxious and discouraged. They may be the king of the zodiac, but they're not nearly as confident as they often appear.

Virgo is a worrier, but only over trivial matters. When it comes to a major crisis, they're able to cope better than most. They'll keep themselves well informed and offer a steady stream of support for those not faring as well.

Libra has a good understanding of what's going on in the world, a trait that helps them keep everything in perspective. That said, they're prone to becoming consumed by worries more than they let on; they're also not good at roughing it, and can get edgy if their lifestyle is upset.

Scorpio is in their element in chaotic times, given their resourcefulness and strong sense of courage. They do well amid difficult circumstances because turbulence gives them something to sink their teeth into. They're supportive of others and have the ability to spot light even in the darkest situations.

Sagittarius is the optimist of the zodiac, always believing that hard times will get better around the next corner. If that corner takes too long to appear, however, they may grow a bit frustrated ... but deep down they always seem to know that lady luck is on their side.

Capricorn is a courageous sign. At the same time, they do like the good life, so any news that affects their security can create anxiety. Their saving grace is an ability to see life in the long term, which enables them to accept hard times as temporary.

Aquarius will spend hours picking their friends' brains about the direness of the situation. They appreciate the camaraderie that comes with times of uncertainty, when friends become ever more important to them.

Pisces tries to block out as much as possible, and may even stop watching the news. They're easily overwhelmed by the suffering of others, so they protect themselves by diving into their own dream world.
