Most Common Stress Response: Biting finger nails, and doubting my self. All of my stress is dependent on this school and my lack of motivation and will-power to force myself to study and do homework. Main Coping Method: My main coping method is parties on the weekends to relax. This involves smoking and drinking. I do not smoke a lot nor do I drink to get drunk just enough to almost relax.
These are probably not the most productive coping methods but I feel they work the best for me out of the ones I do use. New Techniques: Recreational Center is something I have been trying. Working out, running, playing sports and hitting the speed bag (boxing). I want the school to get a body bag to help relieve stress even more. Nothing better than aggressive stress relief.
Knowing that at the end of the day I can hit something as hard and as much as I want may delay my stressor reaction long enough to have some fun with it. Or maybe calm down. Bibliography None.
