Personal Stress Management
Short Description: For many people, simply hearing the word “stress” increases their heart rate, blood pressure, respiration, and anxiety level. Regardless of one’s place in the world, all people face many difficulties every day that can cause them stress. But stress is not a thing; rather, it is how the body responds to things, called stressors. Stressors cannot really be eliminated, but people can learn to manage their own response to everyday stressors, leading them to a healthier body and a more positive outlook on life. This course discusses stress, the impact personal stress has on one’s health, and several ways people can learn to manage their personal stress levels.
