Illness is considered a behavioral stressor. T or F


False. Illness is a biological but not a behavioural stressor. Biological stressors are certain types of conditions that prevent individuals from engaging in their normal daily activities. Behavioural stressors involve unhealthy habits whereas biological stressors relate to the human body and include such things as disabilities, chronic illnesses, injuries, biochemical changes. Biological stressors like a cold may interfere with one’s ability to do their daily routine. The body in such a situation would require some time to recover hence the need for time off work and so on.
