Q: Are You Stressed? A:Stress Management!

Would it come as a surprise to find out that Weber State University has a class called Stress Management?  Would it be a surprise to find out that I am enrolled in that class? Well, I am!

Let me elaborate about why I enjoy this class so much.  I am taking 15 credit hours this semester, and I must admit Stress Management has been the one class that I have consciously applied what I have learned EVERYDAY.  We learn about the stress response and how, in reality, the world isn’t a stressful place.

The one thing I have come to realize as a result of this class is this: We, as individuals, have the power to choose our response to any given stimulus (stressful problem).  We are in control!  We determine how stressed and/or relaxed we are.  To my surprise, I have found this declaration to be TRUE!  My professor, Dr. Olpin is so enthusiastic about this subject material and even has us listen to relaxation exercises throughout the semester to help aid the students to become stress free.

WSU has a stress management lab that is available for all students and it’s paid for by your student fee’s. Might as well take advantage, right?  Here are some pictures of me outside of the stress lab!

Don’t you just feel so relaxed 🙂 ? haha.  The lab is open every week day during normal business hours.  This class has been a huge help to me and I have only been in the class for one month!  Come check out what Weber State has to offer and do yourself a favor–RELAX!  The lab has a full body massage chair!  In other words, welcome to heaven!  ha.

“The successful manager of stress is willing to do that which the unsuccessful manager of stress is not willing to do.”  — Dr. Olpin
