Week 1 DQ 1 What physiological consequences or symptoms caused by stress have you observed in your body? Describe at least one example. When you observe that symptom, what steps do you take to mediate the impact of either the stressor or its resulting physiological condition? What physiological symptoms of stress have you observed in others? What physiological consequences or symptoms caused by stress have you observed in your body? Consequences that I have observed in my body from stress are a loss of appetite or nausea, and muscle tension. I have noticed that when I become severely stressed about bills or family dealings that I do not eat, I sometimes become nauseated and do not feel well, and tense up for a second or two when I begin to become angry about the whole situation. When you observe that symptom, what steps do you take to mediate the impact of either the stressor or its resulting physiological condition? When I become stressed due to family matters and feel myself tensing up I normally take a deep breath and remove myself from the situation. When nauseated or unable to eat I try to talk things out with my husband. Sometimes by just sharing the burden with another, like my husband I am able to release some of the stress that is causing me to not be able to properly maintain my health. What physiological symptoms of stress have you observed in others? Physiological symptoms of stress that I have observed in others are panic attacks, exhaustion, and depression. I have a sister in-law that deals with panic attacks depression and exhaustion and I believe that this symptoms are mostly due to the stress that she puts upon herself on a daily basis. Week 1 DQ 2 Due Date: Day 4 [ Main forum] Post your response to the following: Which stress management method presented in Ch. 5 is most effective for you? Do you think this method is as effective when used by others? Why or why not? What factors might influence the success or failure of this stress reduction method for different individuals? Which stress management method presented in Ch. 5 is most effective for you? The stress management methods that help me when I feel as though I am under too much stress are the methods of relaxation, exercise, and cognitive restructuring. When relaxing I am able to clear my mind of all of the things that seem to be bothering me throughout the day and this helps me to forget about my problems for awhile. When exercising I have no time to dwell upon my problems and instead focus my attention on the exercises that I am completing , leaving me when I am done feeling so refreshed that nothing seems to bother me anymore. Cognitive restructuring helps me to believe that things are going to get better, so some of the stress that I feel about a particular factor doesn’t seem to be so bad anymore. Do you think this method is as effective when used by others?
