Prepare: Achieving balance in areas of life such as work, family, home, and school can be a challenge for adult students. If one area is neglected, other aspects of your life may suffer, creating a stressful environment.

Reflect: As an adult student, you juggle different responsibilities in life, such as your home, work, school, family, finances, and health. Your textbook states that long-term stress can harm mental or physical health and/or keep you from reaching your goals. Notice which areas in your own life are in balance and which seem to be out of balance. Reflect on the amount of stress that the out-of-balance areas cause. Consider ways to manage and minimize stress in your life to achieve balance.

Write: For this discussion, respond to the following:

  • List one area in your life that is currently in balance. What actions do you take to maintain this balance?
