Stress Management

Overall results 108: A relatively low amount of life change and a low susceptibility to stress-induced health breakdown.

Overall results 62: You often use problem-focused coping methods, you rarely, if ever use negative coping methods and you seldom, if ever, use emotion-focused coping methods.

Overall results 49: Moderate level of achievement striving, moderate level of perfectionism, fairly comfortable in emotional situations and average need for external incentives for motivation.

Based on my results I learned that I have a low stress-induced health breakdown, I use problem-focused coping methods and that I am in between Type A and Type B. Overall, I have low amounts of stress in comparison and that I need to use more emotion-focused coping methods. 

The first thing I will do to manage stress would be by working on my emotion-focused coping methods. I would start by trying to distract myself more and possibly writing more about my emotions. The next thing I would do is work on my physical health with more exercise and eating better. These strategies seem like they would help because it would give me a better outlet for my emotions and stress rather than bottling it up and acting like it does not bother me. 

A few of the health concerns within organizations are high blood pressure, headaches, depression and anxiety. There seems to be more ways of organizations helping mental health issues rather than physical health issues, but the methods seem to be helpful. The first thing organizations seem to be doing is understanding how mental health impacts employees and working to find solutions to help. As for helping with stress it seems that some organizations are using either flexible hours or work from home programs to help employees with their stress management.
