As you think about your discussion post, think about the following:
- What factors lead to the experience of stress?
- On what would they agree or disagree?
Identify a major stressor in your life. Please choose one that you are comfortable sharing with the class. If others are involved, please disguise their identities to protect their privacy. Describe the stressful situation and explain how it affects you. You should discuss as many of the following as possible: Emotions, self-esteem, relationships, work performance, health. Create a realistic and practical step-by-step strategy for coping with this stressful situation. Using information from your readings, explain why that strategy should be effective.
