The reaction of the body and mind to everyday challenges and demands Stress in Your Life Perception: is the act of becoming aware through the senses. One way to manage stress is to change how you perceive and react to events that cause it.
Chronic stress: Long term stress For example: Workaholics often have chronic stress. Acute stress: Temporary stress For example: The night before a big test you might experience acute stress.
1. Biological stressors: illnesses, disabilities, or injuries. 2. Environmental stressors: poverty, pollution, crowding, or natural disasters. 3. Cognitive or thinking stressors: the way you perceive a situation or how it affects you and the world
4. Personal behavior stressors: such as negative reactions in the body and mind caused by using alcohol, tobacco or other drugs or by lack of physical activity. 5. Life situation stressors: death, separation/divorce, or having trouble in relationships with peers.
Three phases: 1. Alarm 2. Resistance 3. Fatigue
Homeostasis: When your body’s systems function smoothly and your mind is at ease. (normal balanced state) In the alarm stage, your body produces adrenaline. Adrenaline: Gives you a burst of energy and causes many changes in your body. Fight or flight response: The changes cause you to fight the stressor or “take flight” and escape.
It’s not always possible to fight or take flight from the stressor. The body tries to recover from the stress response but can not return to homeostasis. The body continues to function at a higher level. Did you Know (pg 201)
Fatigue: In this stage, your ability to effectively manage other stressors is very low. Both the mind and body have become exhausted. 3 Types Physical: Fatigue of the body in general Pathological: Fatigue brought on by the overworking of the body’s defenses for fighting disease. Psychological: Fatigue that is brought on by mental stress.
