Synonyms of "Get" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between 1.It's much easier to get to work. and 2.It's gotten much easier to get to work.

(Does the second sentence sound natural ?) ?
A: I would go with #2, yes. But I would also add a little bit to it. Since flextime is being able to work flexible hours (most often you get to work 10 hours a day for 4 days a week instead of 8 hours a day for 5 days a week), it's not immediately apparent why having flex time would mean easier going to work. For example, "Now that we are on flextime, it has gotten easier getting to work because I don't have to commute during rush hours." For clarity.
Q: What is the difference between I get stressed out and I am stressed out ?
A: "I get stressed out" - From past experience, you know that you get stressed out. In context, it could be referring to the past, present, or future.
"I am stressed out" - You are currently stressed out. This always refers to the present.
