a) Rewrite the three personal or professional goals you identified in Section II-a as DAPPS goals (dated, achievable, personal, positive, specific). These three larger goals will inform your sub-goals for stress management.
b) Consider the DAPPS goals you identified in Section IV-a, and identify three sub-goals that address ways you can better cope with stress as you work towards your larger goals. These three goals become your action steps. Like your three main goals, your sub-goals should be DAPPS.
c) Explain how each supporting action step you identified relates back to psychological concepts and the stressors of your own daily life. How, specifically, will accomplishing each of these goals help to minimize your stress? What specific benefits do you think you will gain from achieving your sub-goals?
Approach this as an opportunity to reflect upon and apply what you learn this week and as an opportunity to share your knowledge and expertise based on your educational and professional experiences in the past. As a successful professional, you will need good reflective and writing skills. Journal activities offer you the opportunity to further develop these skills. Review this tutorial for information on creating a Blackboard journal entry.
