How does the text define stress? What are some common stressors? What are some strategies for coping with stress?
I do not have your text book but: Researchers define stress as a physical, mental, or emotional response to events that causes bodily or mental tension. [ Simply put, stress is any outside force or event that has an effect on our body or mind.
Common stressors include: work, marital conflict, sick family members, busy schedules, traffic, homework. Some strategies to cope with stress: Try to start a stress journal to help you identify what is causing the stress and how you are feeling during this time.
Try to avoid the sources of unnecessary stress in your life. This can be a person, a certain topic, or even a stressful environment. You can alter the stressful situation if you can't avoid it altogether.
Focus on the positive if you can't alter or avoid the situation. Change yourself and the way you are looking at the thing that is stressing you out the most.
Be accepting of the things that you can't change. This may be a health problem or a family issue that you need help dealing with in a healthier manner.
