Reducing your stress can help you maintain a healthy mind and body. Most stress-management experts say real stress reduction requires significant skill and discipline beyond simply becoming aware of different methods. Additionally, not everyone responds to various stress-reduction techniques in the same way. Through experimentation, it is possible to find various ways to incorporate stress management into ones life in order to balance stress with more positive experiences.
For this assignment, you will research two examples of stress-reduction techniques and develop a PowerPoint presentation that includes the following:
Title Slide with Name, Course, and Date
Slide 2 – Introduction
Topics to be covered in outline form
Choose two different stress-management techniques (some examples were discussed in the lecture material and readings or you may research examples of your own). Briefly define each stress- management technique and provide an image representing each.
Discuss how each technique is performed, how often, etc. (Consider adding a video link to demonstrate).
How does it work?: Exactly how does it relieve stress? What effects does it have on the body (physiologically) or mind (psychologically) or both?
Evaluate each technique: Does it work (provide support)? Who says it works? Who says it doesnt? What are the strengths and weaknesses? Would you use it? Why or why not?
Slide 9 – Conclusion
Summarize your project findings.
For this Case assignment you will develop a PowerPoint Presentation that is 1-10 slides in length and addresses the requirements outlined above. Place the text containing the answers to the questions above in the slide area, summarizing each topic using bullet points (in your own words, expand in more detail using the notes area).
Be sure to include citations referencing your sources on each slide (use either the slide or notes area). Include a descriptive title for each slide that describes the topic being discussed. Be sure to include a title slide with your name, assignment type (ex. Case Module 4), and course title; an introduction slide with the subjects you will cover in outline form; and a slide summarizing your project findings (Conclusion slide). Your final slide should contain a list of references cited in APA format.
