Writing: Your are invited to a friend’s birthday party. What about the

situation could cause you to experience stress.

What causes stress l.jpg
What Causes Stress?

Stress is the response of your body and mind to being challenged or threatened. You experience stress when situations, events, or people make demands on your body and mind. Stress can be positive or negative. Stress that is positive is called eustress. Eustress may help you escape from a dangerous situation or accomplish a goal. Stress that is negative is called a distress. Distress can take a negative toll on your performance and your health.

Stress has a variety of causes. An event or situation that causes stress is called a stressor. Four general types of stressors are major life changes, catastrophes, everyday problems, and environmental problems.

Major life change l.jpg
Major Life Change

Major life changes include both positive changes, such as graduating from high school, and negative changes, such as having a serious illness. Even a positive life change can be stressful. A catastrophe is an event that threatens lives and may destroy property. Experiencing a catastrophe can be extremely stressful. A person who experiences a catastrophe may have to deal with the psychological effects for years after the event. Everyday problems such as hassles, conflict, and the pressure to succeed can cause stress. Environmental problems such as noise, unsafe conditions, or crowded conditions can also cause stress.

SCORING: Add the points for each event that you have experienced over the past

Year . Of the people with 300 points during the year, 80% will get sick. With 150 to

299 you have a 50% chance of getting sick. With less than 150 points have a 30%

Chance of getting sick.

It is important to know that you can significantly decrease your chances of serious

illness by decreasing the amount of stress in your life. You can control many of these

changes by anticipating them and planning for them. By anticipating change you

better prepare yourself to handle stress

Stress is how your mind and body respond to a threat or challenge. Something that causes stress is called a stressor. Stressors can cause positive stress, eustress, and negative stress, or distress.

Application l.jpg

Read the story write the events that might be a stressors.

At 7:30 a snowy evening, Vince and the other members of his band are

setting up for their first big performance. They are the opening band at

a concert to raise money for hurricane relief. The hurricane destroyed

hundreds of homes.

Vince feels good about helping the relief effort, but so far nothing has

gone right. Before he could leave for the concert hall, he had to spend

20 minutes shoveling his car out of the snow. Kenji couldn’t find his

favorite drumsticks, and Vince is worried that the hall is too cold for him

to keep his guitar tune. Rashinda is distracted because she just found out

that her sister is getting married.

After tuning his guitar, Vince looks up and sees the first members of the

audience arriving. Rashinda gives him a thumbs-up sign and he starts to

grin. It’s time to go to work.

Fight-or-Flight response

How stress affects your body l.jpg
How Stress Affects Your Body

  • The body’s response to stress occurs in three Stages-the alarm, the resistance and the exhaustion stage.

  • During the alarm stage, your body releases adrenaline. Adrenaline, causes your heart to beat faster, your breathing to speed up, and your muscles to tense. The initial

  • response of your body to stress called flight-or-fight response.

  • If you are unable to respond successfully to a stressor during the alarm stage, your body moves into the resistance stage. During the resistance stage, your body adapts to the presence of the stressor. The symptoms from the alarm stage disappear, but the

  • work your body does during this stage uses a lot of energy. So you may become tired and irritable.

  • If the stressor continues for a long time, your body enters the exhaustion stage. At this stage, your physical and emotional recourses are depleted.

Warning signs l.jpg
Warning Signs

  • Recognizing the warning signs of stress may help you prevent some of its negative effects on your health. The warning signs of stress include changes in how your body functions and changes in emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. Once you recognize your individual warning signs of stress, it is important to identify the stressor.

  • Server or prolonged stress can affect your health. Stress can trigger certain illnesses, reduce the body;s ability to fight an illness, and make some diseases harder to control.For example, stress can trigger stomachaches, asthma attacks, and headaches. Prolonged stress can also reduce the ability of your body’s immune system to fight diseases. As a result, you may develop minor illnesses such as colds, and more often. Some effects of prolonged stress may not show up until later in life, in diseases such as heart disease.

Application30 l.jpg

Deirdre rarely missed the bus. That’s why she was so angry when it

happened. Well, that and the fact that her little brother was the reason.

He was always too slow getting ready in the morning! Now she had to

ask her mom to drive her to school.

As they backed out of the driveway, Deirdre thought “There’s no way

I’ll get school on time. “Then Deirdre’s mom asked her what she planned

to do after school. That made Deirdre even more irritable. She didn’t

want to talk about her plans with her mother.

By the time they got to school, Deirdre had a headache. It seemed like

she had a lit of headache lately. Maybe it was because she wasn’t

sleeping very well. She wasn’t eating all that much, either. She just

didn’t feel very hungry most of the time.

Quick Quiz: How many of the following statements accurately describe how you think or behave.

Writing: Review your responses. Then explain why you might be more or less likely to be under stress than others.

Stress and individuals l.jpg
Stress and Individuals

People can have different reactions to the same stressor. Some may remain calm. Others may become anxious and tense. How you react to a stressor depends on how you assess the situation. As you assess the situation, you answer two important questions.

  • Is the situation a threat to my well-being?

  • Do I have the resources to meet the challenge?

    Your past experience have a lot to do with how you respond to new situations.

    Your personality influences your assessment of a situation. You may face stressful situations with optimism or pessimism. Optimism is the tendency to focus on the positive aspects of a situation. Pessimism is the tendency to focus on the negative and expect the worst. Being a perfectionist can also increase your level of stress. A perfectionist is a person who accepts nothing less than excellence. Perfectionists are never satisfied. They set goals for themselves that are impossible to reach.

Conclusion l.jpg

Some people can tolerate high levels of stress. They see stressful events as challenges, not threats. They believe they an control the outcome of the stressful event. The ability to recover, or “bounce back,” from extreme or prolonged stress is called resilience. The key factor in resilience is having the support of family and friends. Other factor include confidence, realistic plans, good communication and problem-solving skills, the ability to recognize and control feelings, and the recognition that change is a normal part of life.

How you think about situations makes a big difference in how much

stress they cause you. You can think either positively or negatively

about most situations. For example, as you teacher shows you how to

do a different problem, you might think “I can learn how to do this if

I try” (positive thinking) or “I’ll never be able to do this, so I might as

well not try” (negative thinking). Positive thinking can help you solve

problems and decrease stress. Negative thinking can make a problem

worse and increase stress.

As a group, brainstorm and record negative thought about each situation

below. For each negative thought, brainstorm and record a positive

thought. Discuss how the different thoughts would make you feel if you

were in each situation.

Coping with stress l.jpg
Coping With Stress

It is important t distinguish between stressors that you can control and

stressors that you cannot. That way, you can direct your energy toward

those things that are within you power to change. Two techniques that

can help you keep stress under control are time management and

mental rehearsal. Poor time management in one of the biggest

contributors to stress. Managing time productively allows you to get

more done. In a mental rehearsal, you practice an event without actually

doing the event This helps you feel more confident.

When you recognize warning signs of stress, you need to find a way to

reduce the tension. Three strategies that can help you relieve tension

are physical activity, relaxation, and biofeedback. Physical activity

provides you body with a health outlet for built-up energy and helps you

shift your focus form your problem. Relaxation gives your mind and

body a chance to rest. With biofeedback, people learn to control one or

more body functions by monitoring their body’s responses.

Conclusion52 l.jpg

Sometimes you can reduce your level of stress by changing the way you

think about stressors. One way to change your thinking is to replace

negative thoughts with positive ones. You can also use humor in some

stressful situations. Monitor you internal conversations and replace

Negative thoughts with more positive or realistic versions. Humor can

allow you to deal quickly with stressors and keep it in the proper


You need to build you resilience to help you deal with extreme pro-

longed stress. Strategies to increase resilience include taking care of

yourself, building a support system, and taking action.

When the stress in you life becomes too overwhelming for you to

handle on your own, you may want to ask someone to help you with

your problems. Sharing your problems can help you see them more

clearly. Just describing your concerns to someone else often helps you

understand the problem better.
