Stress is a burst of energy cause by the release of the hormone adrenaline into the blood stream stress can be good such as the adrenaline making the individual feel motivated or focused and bad such as causing weakening to the immune system and insomnia. We will look at the different types of stress and the different effects of stress (both good and bad) on an individual in more detail.
  • Unit 2 – Feelings experienced when stressed – Stress is very difficult for an individual to go through both short and long term in this unit we will look at how it can affect an individual physically, mentally and emotionally causing a range of different symptoms in these different areas. This unit we will look at the different feeling people experience when they are stressed.
  • Unit 3 – How stress affects a person’s life – Next we will look at how stress can affect the different areas of a person’s life such as relationships, work and health (both physically and mentally). We will look at the internal and external demands experienced in everyday life and how these demands can contribute to stress, such as an individual’s job or where the individual lives.
  • Unit 4 – How Stress Can Be Managed – Finally we will look at how an individual can spot when they are becoming stressed and what actions they can take to manage their stress such as exercising. Physical activity can boost the feel good hormones such as serotonin and make an individual feel happier and see their life in a more positive light. Local support offered to individuals suffering from stress will also be explained.
