WEEK 2 JOURNAL Stress and Wellness

Chapter 6 of the course textbook addresses the issues of adult
personality development. For this journal, reflect on how stress impacts
overall wellness, how stress can be managed, and how you have managed
it in your own life.

In this journal entry, address the following:

· Comment on how this week’s learning and materials compliment,
oppose, and/or affect change in your positions and attitudes on the
relevant subject matter.

· Identify what you consider to be the most significant sources of
stress in adult life and the most relevant and effective stress
management tools and methods; include comments on factors such as
nutrition, exercise, cognitive appraisal, heredity, work, family, etc.

· From this reflection, formulate and describe examples of stress
management strategies you might share with an adult client to manage
sources of stress and enhance wellness.

· Share one example of an area in which you would like to make a
change to better manage your own stress and enhance your wellness.
