  2. STRESS – WHAT IS IT AND HOW DOES IT AFFECT OUR BODIES, MINDS AND SOULS? • FIGHT OR FLIGHT RESPONSE; BODY PRODUCES STRESS PRODUCING HORMONES – ADRENAL HORMONES • REDUCING BLOOD SUGAR UTILIZATION AND DECREASING INSULIN SENSITIVITY; • HYPERTENSION • THE IMMUNE SYSTEM AND FOREIGN MICROORGANISMS • WHITE BLOOD CELLS • PSYCHOLOGICAL STRESS – ASSOCIATIONS WITH DISEASE

  3. NO ONE IS EXEMPT FROM STRESS • CONSTANT AND CONTINUOUS STRESS IS CALLED “WEATHERING” • RACISM IS ONE OF THE MOST VIOLENT AND DESTRUCTIVE SOURCES OF STRESS IN AMERICA– IT SHAPES OUR BEHAVIORS AND RESPONSES TO LIFE • RESEARCH TELLS US THAT DISCRIMINATION TRIGGERS ABNORMAL PHYSIOLOGIC RESPONSES AND POOR HEALTH IN AA WOMEN • OUR HEALTH DISPARITIES ARE PHYSIOLOGICAL MANIFESTATIONS OF SOCIAL INEQUITIES AND THE DISADVANTAGES OF COPING WITH STRESS; DISCRIMINATION DUE TO ETHNICITY , GENDER , CLASS AND AGE

SOME OTHER TIME NEVER COMES.” • MORE JOBS AND JUGGLING ECONOMIC, SOCIAL, PSYCHOLOGICAL, MORAL, CULTURAL AND SPIRITUAL RESPONSIBILITIES FOR OUR FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES • WHAT TO DO ?– BABY STEPS STARTING FROM WHERE YOU ARE; ACCEPTANCE ( NOT CONDONING IT ) AND GRATITUDE (LIST ) • THE MORE WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR THE MORE WE WILL BE GRATEFUL FOR… YOU ARE WHERE YOU ARE; DOESN’T MATTER WHAT HAPPENED TO GET YOU HERE. MAKE UP YOUR MIND TO CHANGE IT– LIFE SAVING CHANGES

  6. STAY PRESENT; NEITHER THE PAST (GUILT) NOR FUTURE ( ANXIETY ) EXIST • DO ONE THING AT A TIME • SIMPLIFY YOUR LIFE • ORGANIZE YOUR LIFE TO INCLUDE FUN AND SPONTANEITY • LAUGH MORE • DO NOT EXPECT OTHERS TO BE DIFFERENT THAN WHO THEY ARE • DO UNPLEASANT TASKS IMMEDIATELY • PRACTICE COMMUNICATION SKILLS SUCH AS “I”. I NEED TO OR WANT TO NOT I HAVE TO • FINISH SOMETHING • STRESS =
