Stress and Coping Project
Guidelines and Rubric
You will create, manage, and apply a chosen coping or relaxation technique and keep a journal of your
overall well-being. For two weeks straight, you will engage in a reliable technique (e.g., meditation) for 10-
15 minutes every day. Before each session, you will record your overall mood and stress using the Daily
Stress and Coping Entry Form (available in Doc Sharing). You should have an entry form for each day.
Before and after beginning the project, you will evaluate your overall mood.
Write a general overview on the benefits of the stress management technique you used, the challenges
you encountered in trying to utilize the technique, and whether you plan on using the learned technique in
the future. Included in this paper should be a summary of results using a chart, graph, or other
presentation of personal data. This report should be between two and three double-spaced pages using
APA style formatting.
