In my work place setting, I work for a agency who works with families with children that are autistic or have behavioral problems. Moreover, with my job being an agency there are significant amount of flaws within this organization. Agencies in general seem to have many flaws. Furthermore, I experience a few stressors that effect me daily. One stressor that I experience is having to go to weekly supervision every Friday without pay. This is a stressor for me because my job location is not as close to my house, granted about 25 minutes from my home. So, the stress for me is driving all the way to my job location just to speak on actions of my client that are consistent each week. Other jobs that I have applied to previously compensate their workers for supervision weekly or give the option to have phone conferences about our clients.
The major stress in my life is chores. This only because I have so much to remember. I am a forgetful person. My mom will tell me certain things to do and I’ll forget them. This makes mom mad and I get in trouble. This affects me emotionally by making me sad. I also run my mind ragged trying to remember. My mom will give me 4 chores and I’ll remember 1 one of them. If I do not get them done, my mom take my phone and ground me. I wish I could remember everything so I wouldn’t get in trouble. I get affected physically because the stress makes me tired and sometimes I stress eat. I sleep alot and I gain weight a lot. I am skinny but I do gain weight. I don’t really manage my stress. Sometimes I try to write down the chores my parents tell me. I just don’t remember to everytime.
Chronic stress is a long-term stress. I’ve recently experienced chronic stress at my workplace. I have been working at a movie theater for a few years now, and the pressure of it has been building up. At my work place, we are constantly pushed to upsell to the customer, and it has been getting more and more stressful. As much as we understand that the customer does not want to purchase something other then their chosen concession snacks, it is obligatory for us each to offer and attempt to upsell as much as possible. Working in this high-pressure environment, has often caused me to feel psychologically and emotionally drained. Physiologically, l come home from work extremely tired from standing up and running around all day. Sometimes, my
Stress is something I deal with on a daily basis. Stress can affect your body, your thoughts, feelings, and your behavior. When I feel stressed I feel under pressure, nervous and tense.

While I employed my de-stress strategy these past couple weeks, there were a couple things I took note of that I really enjoyed. One of the large benefits I noticed from using this de-stress strategy at night, was that it helped me to calm down my thoughts before I went to sleep. I often have a difficult time falling asleep because my mind is racing with thoughts, so listening to quiet music and allowing myself to not think for a while made a positive and noticeable difference in my sleep pattern. I also enjoyed how it helped me have a good mood before I went to sleep. As you can see from my chart, most of the time after I was done being mindful, I either felt calm or relaxed; I did not experience negative feelings from my mindfulness. This contributed to helping me fall asleep, and overall put me in a better mood.
When I was gathering resources for my first stress portfolio, one picture left a deep impression. It says: “there are only two times I feel stress: day and night.” Yes, stress exists along with our whole life; it may seem that there is nothing that we can do about stress. The homework and exams will keep coming, there is endless study and work in the day, and our career and family responsibilities will always be demanding. However, the good news is that stress can be managed. The simple realization that you are in control of your life is the foundation of stress management. Managing stress is all about taking charge of your thoughts, emotions, schedules, and the way you deal with problems.
My main source of income, currently, comes from my job as a therapeutic staff support (TSS) worker. I see one client in a middle school who is twelve years old and is in sixth grade. Unfortunately, the school I work in does not provide consistent or appropriate consequences to some of my client’s behavior; this creates challenges. For example: on any given day I might spend up to an hour working with my client to explain why certain behaviors are positive and some are negative, just to have another teacher or staff member in the school completely undermine what I just explained. Whenever this mixed messaging occurs, not only does it erode trust between my client and myself but, it also breeds resentment
