There are various experiences in life that affect us daily in different ways. These situations could be considered good or positive, bad, or negative. The ways in which we deal with our circumstances on a short term could be examples and/or results of acute stress. The case study that was presented involves a college basketball player whose name was Desmond. He is also the captain of the team. We are not sure of the age, but we will assume he is approximately 19 years old. The Desmond is 6ft 2 inches tall. He weighs 210 lbs. He stated that he was physically active 6 days a week and takes one day off. There were many concerns that Desmond had. The first being his daily caloric intake which was 5000. Desmond eats an incredible amount of food and has not been concerned with the nutritional value of the food he has been eating. This number is too high for a young man his age, height, and weight to remain healthy. The second concern was the stress that this young man is experiencing. Desmond is stressed by the pressures and expectations of his coach. About the effects that this stress could cause to his health long term. Ant the stress of maintaining a healthy life knowing his family health history. Desmond is also because of the high expectations place on him by his coach. The young man wanted to understand the impact of all the stress that he was under in the future. The third concern was of his family history. He stated that his mother and father both had heart disease and cancer.
The goals of Desmond were to alleviate some of the stress that he was under. To understand how stress affects his life and to alleviate it and to live a healthier lifestyle in what he is eating.
