- 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.
- My peer asked that I add additional information to my About Me section, which I did since that section only had my educational information that did not include any personal information. I also thought it would help me be more approachable to clients if they saw my website in order to view me as a ‘Regular’ person. I also change my Home Page feed to include three columns of my Posts instead of two columns as I previously had due to having several posts to my site. I thought it would be easier to view with more access to view multiple posts at once.
- A person’s well-being has many intersections that combine to add to the overall well-being of someone. When a person has stress, the internal systems of a person’s body uses the energy allowed for the internal systems to compensate for the fight or flight response a person experiences when they are stressed (Broderick and Blewitt). This pull of energy from the body to satisfy the rest of the body damages the physical health of the person. When a person is constantly stressed and their physical health begins to decline, you will notice a mental health decline as well since the person is aware that their body is not the same. If a person is able to manage their stress, then their physical and mental health will begin to recover from the lack of energy it needs to return to a healthy and positive state (Broderick and Blewitt).
