2. Any kind of change is stressful to anybody regardless if this change is positive or negative. Thus, I had to step up and cope with all these changes instead of freaking out. My strategy to cope and adjust to all these changes was to see the glass half Full, rather than half empty. During the times when I struggled, I constantly reminded myself that people with ambition and patience will always conquer their dreams at the end. On my first day of college, my life became centered around my classes and learning to take the challenges that come my way and turn them into a motivator for my success. Simultaneously, I searched for
Struggling throughout the process of discovering myself and becoming whom I want to be. Setting aside a plan to be successful in all I want to do, time takes on a major role. Embarking on this school and work process as a nontraditional student having no stability. Without any stability stressing may occur and
Since entering Havre middle school, I have noticed distinct changes in myself. Some people deals with all kinds of changes in life, but some people do not have to really deal with a lot of changes and stress. Some people have to deal with hard changes and some people have to deal with easy ones. Other people have to deal with stressful changes and some people do not. For instance, here are some of the changes I have to face:
Most of these expectation where from myself, for example, doing well in my coursework, keeping up to date with work. I had many worries about starting university and how to manage the finical and social side to starting university. Four out of ten students want to go out and socialise but do not have the correct finances to do this (University.which.co.uk, (2015). I am worried that this will happen to me and I will not be able to enjoy myself fully. Worries about the stress of coursework also arouse, however, through my past I have learnt a variety of coping strategies for when I am stressed, for example a stress journal was the most effective when it came to coping with the stress of coursework and family life.

Being a senior I had already expected that life won’t go that easy. Throughout my Junior year I was being prepared through my AVID class and from all the different articles, and activities we did in class. Kind of reality hasn’t hit me yet, I was making a huge list that marks all I wanted to accomplish in my senior year. But there is this thing called ‘stress’ that is invented and it began to slowly eating my brain away. Just a little stressed what I tell everyone who ask how am I doing. Stress is something we all need to be prepared for in our early stages in life but we can’t help it due to many trials and tribulations that come in our everyday life. For high school seniors like me some of them already developed this disease called, ‘senioritis’ if you haven’t known yet it's a disease that affects your mind, and body from being able to function properly due to the amount loads of work that you have to do. Well if you have good time
Ever since I was younger my parents always told me life is never going to be easy. I know I am still young but every day I have a barrier. Every day I come to school I have a risk of having bad grades, have a possibility of skipping my sport because homework is too much for me, and drama in a friend group. Middle school seems stressful, but I also have a life outside of it too. In my sport I also have to make sure to try my best, so I can make a good team.
Stress as defined by Dr. Laura A. King is “the response of individuals to environmental stressors”. The biggest types of environmental stressor that a majority of adults are facing, will face, or have faced, are college and work. College is a time in someone’s life where they are faced with what the “real world” truly is. It can be a great time in one’s life where they have the opportunity to meet new people, experience new things, and find themselves for who they truly are. It is also a time where people are spending hundreds of dollars, they don’t have, on books, housing, rentals, classes, and so much more; they are also being shoved into a room with possibly fifty other young adults, they have never met, to learn new things or ideas and
There are various writings about dealing with the stress and demands. Coping strategies can be used such as thinking of a time when school is complete and goals are attained. Another coping strategy is relying on
As a Richland Collegiate High School student, I am always attacked by stressors in my academic life. The stress provoked by school-related objects often bled into my home and social life. It created an unhealthy environment where I felt weighed down by the stress. Due to the stress, I often lost my appetite and started sleeping less. My mother worried that I was depressed or that I was developing an eating disorder, but I just did not know how to pick myself up and just get things done. I lacked motivation, self-control, and a healthy balance of work and relaxation. Throughout the course, I have been picking up on some of the strategies I can use to help alleviate my stress and subsequently improve other aspects of my life.
Something I keep in mind as I go throughout the day at school is to always keep a positive attitude. A positive attitude will lead to positive outcomes (author unknown.) I really like that quote because it reminds me that I get to choose whether I have a good day or not. School can be very stressful, not only in the school work but with the people around you. If you keep a good attitude daily and be kind to others you should do well with them.
There's much to learn from yourself,your family, and individuals around you. Learn from experiences, mistakes, and others, but view what you learn in a positive viewpoint to receive positive results. My freshman year, the start of my high school career, it wasn't the best year for me at all. I struggled because I wanted to be surrounded by my so-called friends, who were a negative set of individuals. I got off the crowded bus and was going to the park every day to be with them. They weren't the best set of individuals for me to be around. Being around them seemed fun, but it was really negative because I didn't study, do homework, or perform like I was capable of. My family always worried about me because I wasn't home often and didn't present my grades to them. I had to come to a
Stress is unavoidable, no matter the situation, location, or time; stress is always present. Stress is found in higher levels during the duration in which students attend college. It is predictably higher among college students, freshmans in particular, because of the extreme expectations set upon them by their parents and, of course, society. The need to please their parents, longing for success in life, and being able to sustain a reasonable income in the future, all of which falls into the hands of college students who are making critical decisions which may decide the outcome for a large portion of their lives. If these students end up hating their future jobs, the stress of having to go back into college to study for a new career
Do good in school, and then go to college. I realized that I was stressing over the basic details. I was stressing over being what I wanted to be. I was feeling stressed, but then I kept on thinking. I came to a conclusion, I was going to stress, but I was going to use stress in a good way. Instead of it bringing me into depression, it would help me make better grades. From that day I have done better in school and I feel good about it. My life has some stress but not enough to make me
Psychological stress is pressure placed on a person to adapt, cope, or adjust to a situation (Rathus, 2016, p.284). The result of prolonged stress can affect a person’s mood, pleasure experience, and have harmful effects on physical health (Rathus, 2016, p.284). Society in the twenty first century places high demands on people. Technology makes it very difficult to separate work life, school life, and home life. Today, society places a high value on a busy lifestyle for individuals. For example, many places of business are open twenty-four hours a day. In addition to societal pressures, attending a university adds to the stressors a person may experience. Going to school not only includes classroom time but it also includes homework,
In college life, students face many pressures. One of my biggest stressors was keeping my student scholarship. After coming in to college with a 3.3 grade point average, I knew that keeping a 3.0 in college, for my scholarship, was going to be a challenge that I had not yet experienced. This caused me to work even harder and sometimes even too hard. The scholarship played a large factor in choosing Baldwin Wallace as my school of choice, so retaining my reward is of the utmost importance to both me personally, and my parents financially. As I began classes I realized that the work load seemed a lot larger than high school, and sometimes as if it were never going to end. I soon realized how to balance my time between school work and making grades, as well as meeting new people and having fun. There are many enjoyable things that make college the great experience it has been so far, so finding an equilibrium of hard work and good times has been one the best new attributes I have
