This paper must be between 250 and 400 words in length and written in Times New Roman, size 12, and double-spaced.
Each student is required to attend and participate in one (1) stress prevention/management activities (e.g. yoga, physical activity, deep breathing, meditation, money management etc); there are multiple chances to attend different activities during the semester (classes at the SRSC, free stress group meetings at the Wells Library, free counseling/time management, etc). For the final project, students will need to attend a total of four (4) such activities, this first activity will help students understand what will be required of them, and insure they are working to incorporate stress reducing activities into their life throughout the semester.
This paper must be 250 to 400 words and include the following sections:
1) Describe what the activity they participated in and detail what occurred during the session,
2) Describe how each stress prevention/management activity they participated in works to alleviate stress (this must be based upon the course book or information presented during the semester).For example, think about how the activities work physiologically to change things within our bodies and how this can help to alleviate acute and chronic stress.
3) Lastly, explain the experience participating in the activity. This section is personal and can include any thoughts concerning the activity, if this activity was helpful in the context of your personal stress (i.e. if continual use of this activity would be beneficial, etc.)
