I felt that my blog only needed to be changed in one area. I changed my about me to discuss what I’m interested in when it comes to social work instead of using my essay that I wrote for admission. My admission essay was too long, especially combined with my CV. I did not change the rest because I felt confident in my CV, since it describes what I have accomplished over the last several years.
Stress has a direct impact on mental and physical health. It can impact our immune system because stress utilizes energy that would normally be used for the immune system, it causes the body to enter into flight or fight (Broderick & Blewitt, 2015). chronic stress impacts cortisol levels which are linked to cardiovascular disease (Broderick & Blewitt, 2015). It also can impact mental health, especially to try and reduce loss of resources (Broderick & Blewitt, 2015). These negative stressors significantly impact people physiologically, emotionally, and cognitively (Broderick & Blewitt, 2015). Chronic stress can lead to more negative emotions which has an impact on mental health (Broderick & Blewitt, 2015).
