Almost daily we hear people use the word stress, so it seems that almost everyone knows what this phenomenon represents and how to recognize it, not not how to prevent or mitigate its harmful consequences. Stress is a set of emotional, physical, physiological and behavioral responses that occur when an event is thought to be hazardous or disturbing, and beyond our capacity to cope with. Of course, we should not forget that stress is essentially a very positive part of human nature.

You hear it all the time: stress causes heart disease; stress causes insomnia; stress is bad for you! But what if everything you thought you knew about stress was wrong? And what if changing your mind about stress could make you happier, healthier, and better able to reach your goals? Stanford psychologist and award-winning teacher Kelly McGonigal, PhD, offers a surprising new view of stress one that reveals the upside of stress, and shows us exactly how to capitalize on its benefits. Stress is not always harmful, and in many cases, makes us stronger, smarter, and happier. How you think about stress matters. Rather than trying to escape, avoid, or reduce stress, embracing stress may be the key to well-being. The Upside of Stress is the first book to bring together the most exciting research on resilience--the human capacity for stress-related growth--and mindset, which reveals the power of beliefs to shape reality. Readers will learn: - How to cultivate a mindset that helps you embrace stress. - How stress can give you the focus and energy to reach your goals. - How stress can help you connect with others and strengthen close relationships. - Why the brain is built to learn from stress, and how to increase your ability to learn from challenging experiences. - How to change the biology of your stress response to enhance your physical and emotional well-being. Following in the tradition of McGonigal's previous Avery book The Willpower Instinct, The Upside of Stress combines science, stories, and exercises into a practical guide that is both entertaining and life-changing. The Upside of Stress is not a guide to getting rid of stress, but a guide to getting better at stress, by understanding it, embracing it, and using it.
Teaching is stressful. The demands placed on teachers result in emotional exhaustion and burnout, causing many to leave the profession early. The purpose of the study was to examine whether the coping process utilized by teachers differed at different stages of their career. The current study utilized a portion of the baseline interview of a randomized waitlist control study conducted to explore the effects of a mindfulness-based program on teachers. After coding the interview data for each step of the coping process (i.e., demands, appraisals, ways of coping, resolution, and post-coping assessment), a Frequency Analysis was conducted to determine the rate of occurrence with which teachers report each step listed above. In addition, a series of Chi-square analyses were administered to explore whether there is an association between how the teachers responded to questions corresponding to each step of coping process. Finally, pairwise comparisons were conducted using data from each step to determine which groups of teachers differed from each other. The results indicated that teachers do indeed differ in terms of perceived stress and their chosen method of coping.
