1 Chapter 2 - Lesson 1 What is? Accepting and liking oneself; adapting to and coping with the emotions, challenges, and changes that are a part of everyday life does not mean always feeling happy. People that are mentally healthy are able to deal with their emotions People with good mental health adapt well to change A person with good mental health... Is able to meet the demands of life - able to deal with everyday problems; asking for help when big problems arise Feels good about himself/herself - not overwhelmed by their emotions for long periods of time Feels comfortable with other people - allowing other people to get close to you and for you to get close to them Having a high level of self-esteem promotes good health (remember psycho-nueroimmunology, the mind, body, immune system connection) Feedback Messages from others that tell you how they feel about you (parents, siblings, coaches)/ can be positive or negative 1

2 Positive vs. Negative A person who receives positive feedback probably has a higher self-esteem and mental health than a person who has received mostly negative feed back Someone who has received mostly negative feedback may be more likely to have a fragile mental health. They may misinterpret the feedback they receive from others, sometimes assuming messages are negative when they are not Chapter 2 - Lesson 2 Understanding Your Needs, Understanding Your Personality Maslow Abraham Maslow was a psychologist from America. He studied human development and came up with group of needs that he felt all people needed. He said that all human needs include biological and more complex needs. Maslow s Hierarchy of Needs 1. Physical 2. Emotional a) Need to be Loved b) Need to Belong c) Need to be valued and recognized Maslow s Hierarchy of Needs 3. Aesthetic needs - responding to or appreciating that which is beautiful 4. Self-Fulfillment / Self Actualization - reaching your full potential Personality Complex set of characteristics that make you unique and distinguishes you from others Includes all of your traits, attitudes, feelings, and behavior 2

3 Personality Types 1) Type A achievement oriented, tend to stress out easily 2) Type B laid back, do not tend to get overly worried or anxious, can be considered lazy 3) Type AB ideal personality type combination of the two, sets realistic goals, can adapt to change Extroversion vs. Introversion Extrovert - someone who is outgoing with meeting and interacting with others Introvert - someone who is more quiet and shy Extroversion vs. Introversion If you don t know what an extrovert is thinking you haven t been listening. But, if you don t know what an introvert is thinking, you haven t asked. Thinking vs. Feeling Thinking - logical in their reactions Feeling - reacts to information and situations according to their emotions Factors that Influence the Development of Your Personality 1) Heredity 2) Environment 3) Personal values Personal Values Principles that you find important and that guide the decisions that you make and the life that you live Create your own personal mission statement 3

4 Chapter 2 - Lesson 3 Understanding Feelings that influence your thinking and behavior themselves are neither healthy nor unhealthy. However, how you express your emotions can either be healthy or unhealthy. Hormones Chemicals produced by the body that cause physical and emotional changes Chemicals are produced to the endocrine system by glands and ducts Examples: Progesterone, Testosterone The key is to recognize and express your feelings in an appropriate manner. Expressing your emotions in a positive way is a learned behavior. Food and Moods- pg 38 Laugher- pg. 37 A look into two common emotions Fear Fear is the bodies natural response to danger. When you experience fear, your nervous system relays a message to your brain that danger is present. You body responds by getting itself ready for action This is called the flight or fight response Most fear is learned (except the fear of falling and of loud noises) Fear Healthy ways to deal with fear Major fears - turn to pg. 40 4

5 Anger Anger is a natural response the body has when a person become frustrated. The important thing to keep in mind is to express your anger in constructive ways and not to explode. Strong emotions produce tension in the body. If this tension does not go away the body becomes exhausted Some positive ways to deal with anger.. (pg. 41) What are some ways to deal with your emotions in a healthy way Journal (pg. 42) Develop a hobby you enjoy Do physical exercise Listen to music Call a friend To properly handle your emotions you must: 1. Identify the emotion 2. Identify the source of the emotion 3. Express the emotion in a constructive way It is not what happens to you, but rather your attitude to what happens to you.
