1835 words - 7 pages

AbstractIt is very interesting to look at how stress affects so many different areas of our lives. Everyone handles stress differently and some people don't get as stressed out about things as others do. One thing that I have learned is that if we learn to handle stress with a positive attitude and don't try to avoid it, (Because it is unavoidable) we may actually reap positive benefits from these stressful situations. If we leam to deal with stress effectively, it can help us be ready for the next stressful situation. It can actually keep us healthier, whereas, not dealing with it will only make it stay around and cause us physical, emotional or mental strain. In everyday life we all encounter stress we can let it overwhelm us or we can rise to the challenges and grow personally or even advance in our endeavors. We need to learn to not let stress get the best of us and it easily can by making us grumpy, depressed, filled with anxiety, sick or even overweight. I tried to find some information that would help bring to light some ways to, help us become more optimistic, and ways to improve how we deal with our stress.Stress and How it Affects our HealthAs I started researching stress and how it affects our health, I realize that stress can be in every comer of our lives. It's not only traumatic events, and it is not just personal or work related events. It can be an accumulation of all of these things, and it can become overwhelming if we let it. In reading about stress I believe that we can let it get the best of us or we can deal with it positively. Personally, I have had my share of stress. The way I deal with stress may be different then the way someone else would deal with the same stressful situation. I have found that I need breaks from really stressful situations. I need to deal with it in little doses sometimes. And I am sure we can all relate to stress at work or at home or as we set off on new adventures, such as college. As we come to the end of a six-week course and look forward to the changes that this class will, and has brought for us, we will each be facing some sort of stress. It will most likely be different for each of us and we will probably handle it in our own way.This class has brought on some temporary stress, as I have tried to balance family, work, daily activities and school work. But the positives, that I hope will come from this class outweigh the stress I feel at the moment. I look forward to and think about how much closer I am to my goal of a new career, and it keeps me going. I think it is this hopefulness that keeps people from letting depression into my thoughts. In an interview for Stress News, 2000.Vol13, No. 1. Professor Stephen Palmer, PhD, (City University, London, 1st Nov. 2000) states that his recent study of 181participants, confirms that 50% of us get "occasionally" stressed. Over 25% of peopleare "Often" or "Always" stressed. He found that "..Their whole perception of the world was more stressful"....
