In my blog post there were several suggestions made about how I could appeal more to employers. On my contact screen I added my phone number, which was peer suggested. A peer also suggested that I add a page about experience, I chose not to add that page because I do not have much experience in the Social Work field. However, I did add my resume so a potential employer could see the experience I have in other areas.
Stress, physical health and mental health all play a major part with the well being of an adult. The body responds to stress and produces energy that enhances abilities to deal with the situation. Stress, physical health and mental health are all co-related and affect each other and the overall well being of an individual. When a person has too much stress in their life it affects the physical health, which in turn affects their mental health and overall well-being. Stress can lead to the downward spiral of both negative physical consequences and emotional consequences. It is important to have positive thoughts and emotions to promote recovery from stress and an individual’s overall well-being. Many life events and daily hassles add to the stress of an individual and can become chronic which means the person will continue to deal with these issues and well-being.
