- Share 2 changes/additions you made to your website (note if they were peer suggested or your own ideas) and explain your reasoning behind it. If you did not make any changes, please state as such.
- Explain the relationship between stress, physical health, and mental health as it relates to subjective well-being as concretely evidenced by the text.
- I did not make any changes to my website. The changes suggested were to add a picture and to add more information to my “about me” section. I tried adding a picture to my website and even tried googling the how to section, but failed. The only picture I was able to add only showed in the area I could see, but no one else could. I felt as though I had enough in my “about me” section, so I did not add to it.
Stress can take a toll on someone physically and mentally. Individuals need a support system in times of stress as well as adopting coping mechanisms to their lives. Some individuals need mental health days from work so they can complete tasks in their personal lives or just to use it for rest. When an individual is experiencing chronic stress, it can cause serious health issues, which in turn effects someone’s mental health. Everyone experiences stress, but learning how to manage it is the key. Some people practice meditation or try remaining positive. When the body is stressed, the person has no energy. When someone is ill and stressed, the body has already depleted all energy, therefore causing the illness to remain longer than it should. Since the brain is the main source to stress, keeping healthy mental habits can serve as the key to health-compromising reactivity.
