I added a resume to my website and additional information in the “About Me” section of my website. The purpose for making these changes was to lure potential employers to my website so that they can have insight as to my professional experience and get to know a little more about who I am as a person. These suggestions were from my peer and I really appreciated the feedback and recommendations.
Broderick and Blewitt (2015) explains that the chronic activation of stress can lead to the downward spiral of negative physical and emotional consequences. The positive emotions and resilience broadens attention and contributes to building more personal resources in individuals (Broderick & Blewitt, 2015). Positive emotions serve to undo the impact of negative emotions of stress and can lead to increase overall wellbeing in individuals and help them develop resources to achieve resilience. Broderick and Blewitt (2015) further explained that negative emotions from stress can lead to anxiety and depressive moods which can have a adverse impact on an individuals mental health and well-being. Repeated increase of stress can have devastating impacts on an individual where they become hyper sensitive to threatening details and individuals can become over-aroused to the point where they feel like they are constantly under attack. This leads to physical health impairments such as hypertension and heart ailments as stress has been linked to the over production of the hormone cortisol which can have adverse impacts on an individuals health.
