KIN 69, Spring 09 Final Writing Project: Stress Log This project should help you learn more about your positive and negative stressors. It should also give you some insight into how you manage these stressors now, and how to manage them more effectively using techniques from this semester. Students often say that this project is the most effective project we do all semester. So please try to really follow the instructions below. Phase 1: Data-gathering (you don’t have to turn this part in, but you’re more than welcome to, if you wish; everything I read will be kept 100% confidential) For seven (7) days of your choice (they don’t need to be consecutive; they do need to include 5 weekdays and 2 weekend days) you will record: (1) Routine and unique stressors you encounter during that week. For example, getting to school/work on time every day is often a routine stressor, whether you drive, take public transportation, ride a bike, skateboard, etc. Crashing your car, bike or board is (I hope) a unique stressor.
