Optimism For Tension Management

Optimism is probably the most effective means of stress management. Optimism allows a person to see the good side of things. It is an frame of mind characterized by the belief that everything can be worked out having a positive end result. When it comes to stress, an optimistic thoughts can be able to cope well with whatever stress situations a single experiences in life.

Folks can have either one of two attitudes in everyday life. One can either end up being an optimist or a pessimist. Optimists clarify positive events since having happened because of them. Pessimists think of it inside the opposite way. They have in mind that the negative things that take place in life are their very own doing. Optimists see the good events in their life as evidence more positive things will be happening in the future. With regard to pessimists, a negative event will certainly lead on to much more negative events in the future.

For optimists, negative stuff that happen are not being entirely blamed on all of them where as pessimists usually take the blame on on their own. Optimists think that the negative things happening within their lives are just temporary setbacks while pessimists see the positive things since just temporary events that come once a week. On a more common analogy, optimists see a partially crammed glass of h2o as half total while pessimists usually see it as being half empty. The difference between optimists and pessimists can be identified by how they see the positive as well as the negative things.

In stress management, confidence always wins out. What’s more interesting is always that optimism is a trait that can be learned via practice. As a good thought can do much to a stressful mind, conditioning the mind to consider only of optimistic thoughts can sometimes permit it to change viewpoint subconsciously. It would be a much better deal than to consider the negative all of the link.

Negative thoughts can bring out the stress easily. And too much stress will usually bring the most detrimental in people. The simplest way to combat the stress and the negative thoughts that come with it really is by maintaining a far more optimistic attitude. Although for some people it can be a tad difficult to do, positive outlook actually gets better with practice.

Optimism plus a positive attitude offer you people a number of particular benefits. Not only will it help one deal far better with stress but in addition with a person’s overall well being. One good reason is that optimists and positive thinkers have been known to reside longer than those who notice only the negative in everyday life. A good reason for this is the fact that an optimistic mind, usually thinking of positive points, deal with less difficulties and worries.

It’s persistent worry and also anxiety that seem to bring about such harmful actual conditions like hypertension, hypertension, and sleeplessness. By worrying a smaller amount, optimists usually have to deal with fewer negative baggages to problem them and are much less affected by worry-induced physical conditions. And because of this, optimists live longer and much healthier lives.

It is not only which, there is more which positive thinking brings out in people. Optimism also seems to make folks become more persistent. Even in the face of anxiety and seemingly insurmountable problems, an optimistic brain seems to help folks strive longer as well as survive whereas pessimists very easily give up and see the particular hopelessness in the situation. In stress management, it’s the optimists that don’t easily give up.

It fuels persistence that allows them to flourish in overcoming the stress rather than succumbing to it. And simply by means of this, optimists can show they are able to do and achieve greater than what pessimists can.

    I am taking a stress management course in college and we have to chose a book from a list to read. I chose the book, The Secret. It’s about changing your life to be more optimistic. The book says that you can have anything you want if you just believe and feel it and think good thoughts about what you want. If you want something good to happen in your future, just think about it enough, and you’ll get it.
    But I’m kind of doubtful because I feel that there is no guarantees that you will get what you want if you truly do think good thoughts, believe, and feel it. What do you think?

    The Effects of Poverty on Student Achievement
    And Specific Ways Educators Can Mitigate Against Them

    In the United States today, it is hard not to see the effects of poverty on a daily basis. From the grocery store to our own homes, the struggle is becoming increasingly apparent. In these hard economic times resulting in an increasing rate of poverty, the line of poverty is beginning to blur. As educators, this fact is of vital importance and needs to be enlightened upon. Whether it has been a life-long struggle or the temporary result of the current economic status, poverty has multiple effects on students and their achievement in school. With so many differing opinions about the impoverished, what really are the struggles and how do they relate to achievement in school? Along with that, what can the classroom teacher do to help these students succeed? These are crucial questions for educators as they are faced with increasingly poor students and the struggles that many are burdened with.
    In this paper, I attempt to shed light on the factual statistics in reference to poverty, the struggles associated with it, and how this effects student achievement in school. By looking at true statistics and studies, we will be able to look beyond prejudice and popular belief to the core issues involved. Ultimately, the goal of schools is to support student achievement with the end goal being high school graduation. The paper will also reveal the statistics on graduation rates among the impoverished. The idea is to reach deep and see what it is, exactly, these students are up against on a daily basis, due to their socioeconomic status. This way, we can have a strong foundation of understanding and be able to realize the specific means to create a successful learning environment for these at-risk students.
    In the United States, the poverty thresholds are set by the Office of Management and Budget (Jensen, 2009, p. 5). Jensen defines poverty as “a chronic and debilitating condition that results from multiple adverse synergistic risk factors and affects the mind, body, and soul.” (2009, p. 6) With this definition in mind, it is easy to see how great an extent poverty can adversely affect students’ achievement in school.
    Jensen suggests that there are four main areas affected by poverty. These are emotional and social changes, acute and chronic stressors, cognitive lags, and health and safety issues. He expands by stating that the problems created by poverty have a continuously repeating domino effect on each other. One begets another and the cycle keeps repeating. Low income families live in low income neighborhoods in which they are more likely to be exposed to unsafe play equipment, smaller play areas, crime, contaminated drinking water, and condensed car pollution. In addition to this, they also struggle inside the home due to stressed parents struggling to pay bills, working long hours and late nights and conflicting parents due to the aforementioned problems. The poverty stricken student has less access to books in the home, due to inability to afford them of lack of awareness of the importance of having them. All of these factors, combined, lead to students being stressed, having less optimism and self-esteem, and feelings of isolation and being unloved. As mentioned previously, this creates a cycle and the student ends up having a bad attitude, performing poorly in school, using drugs, and dropping out of school. (Jensen, 2009)
    In a study by Duncan, Brooks-Gunn, Yeung, and Smith, the team studied the specific effects of childhood poverty on early-adult success. This study supported much of Jensen’s reports by stating that there are many aspects related to poverty, including home environment and safelty of the child. They also addressed the stress it puts on a child when the parents quarrel due to economic stressors. They found that this specifically lowers the students’ self-confidence and achievement, especially in boys. They also found that a $10,000 increase in household income could increase a student’s odds of graduating by up to 7 times. This is more specific evidence that supports Jensen’s claims. (Duncan, Brooks-Gunn, Yeung, and Smith, 1998)

    I am a 20 year old female in community college. I’m in my second year, still living with my dad and “stepmom” (they’ve been together since I was 4, but are not married). I’ve been working about 30 hours per week lately at a job that I have had for three years, my first job, at a sandwich shop. I became a night shift manager there about a year ago. I want a different job because I want different exeriences, but I don’t know where to go. Not in food again. And I make $9 per hour there, which is good money I think.

    I just feel so lost. I have no support really. I stopped talking to my mom in May. She is schizophrenic. My dad and mom first had my sister by accident, then got married and divorced, then had me ten years later (my sister is 30). My mom tells me that my dad wanted an abortion with us both. She is very mentally and emotionally abusive and manipulative. I chose to not talk to her because I have to take care of myself and my mental health; who else would? Long story… My family does not really talk. Basically my family is very dysfuntional. My stepmom doesn’t like me or care about me. My dad said the other day to me that the only reason he got her was to raise his kids. He also said that I pretty much had to raise myself and that I don’t have much of a family here.

    I’ve had a boyfriend for three years now. He is in his fourth year of pharmacy school. He’s a sweet guy. But I basically ditched all of my highschool friends for him. They were getting into drugs anyway… I don’t have any friends now. I really want friends but I don’t really know how to be a friend I guess. I have always been very shy. People have described me as nice, but probably too nice, timid, shy, sweet, innocent… I know that I am very awkward. I just don’t know where I fit in or how to make friends. I was optimistic at the beginning of the year but now I just feel lonely, depressed, confused, hopeless…

    I don’t know what to do with my life. I took a career aptitude test in my career explorations class and scored above average to very high on all sections. My teacher said that based on my results I would probably succeed in any career that I wanted. I know I want to help people (but aren’t all jobs helping people in some way or another?) and I don’t want to do anything too science or math related, even though I’m good at both. I was thinking about being a teacher lately but I don’t know if I can handle all the stress, lesson planning, and classroom management. Plus I am an introvert. I think it is a very noble job and wouldn’t want to negatively influence the kids. I don’t know what grade I would want to teach… Being an idealist and perfectionist is really hampering me.

    I just feel resentful that I wasn’t provided all the tools I needed for growing up. I don’t know how to be a good mom or how to find my place in the world. I’m being so negative but I don’t see a way out. My social skills are really suffering and I just don’t know what to do from here. I feel like a loser. I don’t know how everything is going to work out for me…

    I guess I’m just asking for life advice.
