This folder contains the instruments for your Stress and Stress Management Portfolio. Some people don’t realize how much or how little stress they have in their lives, or how some things are “building up.” Quite often, we will skip sleep or excercise “just this once” because we are running from work to school, or our carefully timed schedule is knocked out of alignment. Or, we don’t realize that taking care of ourselves means we actually get more done.
Work through the sections of this folder, then complete an analysis and report in a word document. Submit the word document via the submission tab.
Take at least two of these instruments. What did they say? Do you agree or disagree with the evaluation? Are you surprised?
Holmes and Rahe Event Scale
Work Addiction Risk Test
Take at least two of the how well you are eating instruments, then compare it to what you should be eating. Studies indicate that most human beings drastically over-estimate their activity level and under-estimate their caloric intake, resulting in skewed expectations about their weight management performance.
Nutrition and Healthy Eating Quizzes
How do I find out what to eat?
As usual, take two of the instruments. Depending upon your background, some of this information may surprise you.
Why do we sleep? How long is long enough or too long or too short? What happens when we sleep?
Take one of the quizzes on your sleeping habits, then read up on the cognitive effects of sleep deprivation.

This is a published academic study, but it’s only 13 pages. YOU MUST READ THIS DOCUMENT, and comment in your sleep section on the information contained here.
What are you going to do about it?
Okay, you have worked your way through 4 seperate folders and hopefully gathered some information. Now, you should be creating a 4 section document. Within the sections you should be telling me what instruments you took, did you agree or disagree with them, did you learn anything, are you going to change anything?
