Pressure is a feeling that comes from knowing that something is important and that you need to do your best to get it done.
It can come from deadlines, big projects, or even from other people counting on you.
Pressure can also come from situations where there is a lot at stake, like an important presentation or a big test.
Common sources of pressure include:
- Deadlines for projects or assignments
- High-stakes situations, such as a big exam or presentation
- Competing demands, such as balancing work and family responsibilities.
