Be sure to include a description of your stressors, your use of time, previous attempts at coping, and any other information acquired during the semester from any of the activities completed as a part of the class.Over this period of time and looking over my stress profile, Ive been able to really identify what stresses me out the most. One of my major stressors is money. I am always worried whether or not have enough money to last me through the month or if I still have a good amount it after I pay all my bills. Another stressor that I have is school. I am always stressed out with all of the papers due and making sure I get no less than an A in all five classes. Work is also a big stressor for me. I always have to make sure I get as many hour as I can in so I can have a good pay check, but still keeping in mind that I have both school and softball to attend to. My relationship also is a stressor at times. Sometimes after work I do not feel like cleaning up after him and when we fight it causes stress for the both of us. As for time management, it does not stress me out very much. I use my wisely and the time helps a lot with meeting my goals, as well as my objectives. I do spend all my time at work, softball and school but its all to accomplish my goals. My travel tine is always the same and I alway make sure I leave early enough to be on time. I never find myself running late and not having enough time to complete the necessities through out the day.

After doing this I tend to feel so much more relaxed and I no longer have those negative emotions. Another time I do a breathing exercise si right before I go to sleep. Sleep is another stressor of mine but with the help o that technique, I find myself sleeping through the whole night peacefully again and wake up happy and rejuvenated. The affirmations helped me tremendously as well. I used to be so negative about myself and about everything that is going on in my life. Now I try to find an affirmation to everything negative that I am thinking and try to shine some light on it and know that it will get better and stay positive.
