Share 2 changes/additions you made to your website (note if they were peer suggested or your own ideas) and explain your reasoning behind it. If you did not make any changes, please state as such.
Explain the relationship between stress, physical health, and mental health as it relates to subjective well-being as concretely evidenced by the text.
I did not make any changes to my website for two reasons. The first being that I believe that all the required information is included on the website already and no additional information is necessary, it would just be inflation. The second reason is in regard to my partners critique of the design. I believe the design and layout of the site to be simplistic and directs a visitor well. Adding things such as color or something that is more “colorful” would take away from the professionalism and purpose of the website.
The correlation between stress, physical health, and mental health and how it effects ones welling can best be described to a client in the same way my father taught me. The way my father taught me was the state of your mind, whether you are depressed, happy, or other emotions, can effect you physically and cause/remove stress. I would explain to a client that being stressed all the time can have a negative affect on your overall health and can often cause your body to be more susceptible to sickness. Broderick (p. 542) explains that the increase in cortisol levels in your system due to stress caused by negative emotions can lead to your bodies immune system being weaker than if you were in a time in your life where stress was not effecting you. This gives more background to the term, “Worry yourself sick.”
