I. Project Title : Sabon Oplan Asenso para sa Pangkabuhayan

II. Rationale:

Unemployment is one of the major concern of the local government. Over years, we can observe the fast growing in our population especially in depressed area. Some Non-Government Organization, People Organization and school projects would like to help to ease the burden of the community by educating the unemployed mothers and housewives on how to improve their ways of living. With the help and cooperation of the barangay leaders, this project would be possible. This project will be funded solely by the contributions of each members and ask some business people to give them ideas and encouragement on organizing, training, funding, marketing and management.

We opt to conduct the livelihood program in Barangay Sun Valley Paranque City. The total land area is 75 hectares composed of 32 subdivision/cluster. It is situated along West Service Road, South Superhiway, Paranque City. You could reach the place through the following landmarks: Toyota Bicutan, Robinson’s Supermarket, and Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary Parish. Houses were commonly built in concrete type.

The area is comprises of 7, 983 households. Majority of the population are male and under 30 years of age. The average income of the family per month is approximately P10, 000 and majority living in the area are unemployed because they only reach high school level. Majority of the family has electricity. Water is one of their problem because of its scarcity.

People living in Barangay Sun Valley Paranque are from middle income to low income family. Our livelihood program will only be focused on some participant from the so called depressed/mission/puroks.

III. Project Description:

The purpose of this project is to educate housewives or unemployed mother and out-of-school youth in making,…...

...Stress can be defined or described as “the feeling of being under too much mental or emotional pressure” www.nhs.org.uk (June 2012). Stress is one of the greatest causes of illness in our society today. Stress from a dictionary perspective is identical People have many different ways of reacting to stress, i.e. a manager in the work place may feel stressed when walking into an untidy environment. He or she may feel an immediate need to correct it whereas the untidy environment may motivate a different manager. Life as we know it is full inevitable stressful situations and events from as early on as a child in primary 7. Stress can have a major impact on an individual in terms of how they feel, how they think, how they behave towards others and also on the functioning of the body. An individual may feel anxious, irritable or even low in self-esteem. They may also find their mind and thoughts are doing overtime, find themselves worrying constantly and also studying thoughts in detail. How do we as individuals perceive stress? Do we have a stereotypical view that stress is always negative? When we think of stress we think “I can’t do this anymore, this is too much” or “I’m ready to pull my hair out”. These are common expressions and phrases that we as individuals associate with stress. Stress is not always a bad thing because some people thrive on it and even need it to get things done and achieve in life, it’s what gives us motivation and gets us out of bed in the......

...The Effects of Stress Stress is an ongoing dilemma which occurs in everyone's life. It is a factor that is without a question apart of daily living. Due to the minor problems that occur in people's daily lives, massive amounts of stress can arise. Stress means different things to people and effects people in different ways. Some people think stress is something that happens to them such as an injury or a birthday. And others think that stress is what happens to our mind, body, and behaviors in a response to an event. While stress does involve events and how one responds to them, these are not the critical factors, but our thoughts about the situation in which we are involved are the critical factors. Essentially, stress exists whenever homeostasis is disturbed or cannot be maintained (Stress and the Social System Course Guide, 1993). Homeostasis refers to the body's ability to keep the internal chemical and physical environments constant.(Saladin, 2004) One will learn from this paper, that stress can sometimes cause our body's to react with serious consequences. One will also learn some tips to manage stress efficiently, so that stress doesn't overwhelm them and cause serious problems. There are different ways in which one can experience stress and it is important to remember that stress is an essential part of life. Not all stressful situations are negative. Receiving a promotion at work, the birth of a child or taking a trip can all be stressful, but are not always......

...Stress “Stress is the body’s nonspecific response to a demand placed on it.” Selye (1956) Stress is not a reaction to any one specific thing or situation, it can manifest at any time. Some stress is good for us; a certain level of pressure can help you prepare for such things as work and day to day challenges. Although over an extended period of time, stress can cause physical and psychological harm. Selye describes these types of stress as eustress and distress. Stress is both a biological and psychological reaction to a given situation or threat. The stressor triggers the ‘fight or flight’ response. Once we judge a situation as being stressful, the hypothalamus is activated, and our body releases hormones such as adrenalin, which increase our heart rate and blood pressure so that more oxygen and glucose can get to the muscles. We also breathe faster and sweat more to cool these muscles down. All of these reactions prepare you to take action to deal with a possible threat, Cannon (1932). Over a prolonged period of time, it is not difficult to see the negative effect this response can have on the body. For example hypertension which raises the risk of stroke, myocardial infarction and kidney failure. The body’s immune system is also suppressed making it more vulnerable to infection. There is some evidence that prolonged stress may lead to insulin dependent diabetes in people who are prone to the condition, as it brings about changes in blood sugar levels.......

...Jared Sanchez Contemporary Health II October 20, 2012 Stress: The Constant Challenge Coping with stress can be a constant challenge and it can be hard for someone to handle by themselves. Stress can come from many things such as failing a test, getting into a car accident, and even a break up with a significant other. Stress can be developed by anything that makes you worry about more than you should be worrying about it. Stress-producing factors can be pleasant or unpleasant and can include physical challenges, goal achievement, and events that are perceived as negative. Dealing with stress is hard because without support someone can be really hurting themselves and not even know it. It’s physically, emotionally, and mentally impossible for someone to carry the weight of the world on their back no matter whom you are. Stress, such as many other terms, is misunderstood by people because they don’t really know the precise meaning. Stress is the general physical and emotional state that accompanies the stress response. Stressors are the specific reasons that stress happen. A stressor is any physical or psychological event or condition that produces physical and emotional reactions. First dates with a girlfriend or an upcoming final exam are examples of stressors. Sweaty palms and a pounding heart are symptoms of the stress response. Every time someone goes through stress there is always a response to it. Responses to stressors however can include a wide variety of......

...Stress by Ashley Strawder I. What Is Stress? Stress is the combination of psychological, physiological, and behavioral reactions that people have in response to events that threaten or challenge them. Stress can be good or bad. Sometimes, stress is helpful, providing people with the extra energy or alertness they need. Stress could give a runner the edge he or she needs to persevere in a marathon, for example. This good kind of stress is called eustress. Unfortunately, stress is often not helpful and can even be harmful when not managed effectively. Stress could make a salesperson buckle under the pressure while trying to make a sales pitch at an important business meeting, for example. Moreover, stress can increase the risk of developing health problems, such as cardiovascular disease and anxiety disorders. This bad kind of stress is called distress, the kind of stress that people usually are referring to when they use the word stress. A convenient way to think about stress is in terms of stressors and stress responses. Stressors are events that threaten or challenge people. They are the sources of stress, such as having to make decisions, getting married, and natural disasters. Stress responses are psychological, physiological, and behavioral reactions to stressors. Anxiety, depression, concentration difficulties, and muscle tension are all examples of stress responses. The connection between stressors and stress responses, however, is not as straight forward as it...

...Stress When the body is in stress it creates glucocorticoids, which are made in the adrenal glands. These glucocorticoids are epinephrine and cortisol, which both accelerate immune cells to move from the bloodstream into the tissue if needed to fight against an infection, and when the infection is gone, they return the body to homeostasis. When a person is in stress, these glucocorticoids do the same thing as if they were fighting an infection; however, if the body is in constant stress, it will continue to "fight the infection" and will not return the body to homeostasis. This can cause glucocorticoid receptor resistance and can cause the body to develop an even higher risk of depression, upper respiratory infections, diabetes, autoimmune disease, slower healing, and even cardiovascular disease (1). The body's stress response kicks in when you feel there is a possible threat, which is necessary to ensure the best chance of survival. In the brain, the hypothalamus and the pituitary control the stress response. The adrenal glands also aid in controlling stress response by the kidneys. When the brain senses danger, it sends nerve signals down the spinal cord to the adrenal glands telling them to release adrenaline, which then increases the sugar in the blood, the heart rate, and the blood pressure. The hypothalamus sends signals to the pituitary gland telling it to release factors that travel quickly through the blood stream and stimulate the adrenal cortex to produce......

...dramatically. This swelling comes at the expense of the hippocampus, which is crucial for learning and memory, and shrinks under sever stress. The main job of the amygdala is to perceive danger and help generate the stress response; it’s the brain area turned on by dark alleys and Hitchcock movies. Unfortunately, a swollen amygdala means that were more likely to notice potential threats in the first place, which means we spend more time in a state of anxiety (snowball effect). The end result is that we become more vulnerable to the very thing that’s killing us. - Chemistry - When people feel stressed, a tiny circuit in the amygdala triggers the release of glucocorticoids, a family of stress hormones that puts the body in a heightened state of alert. The molecules are named after their ability to rapidly increase levels of glucose in the blood, thus providing muscles with a burst of energy. They also shut down all nonessential bodily processes, such as digestion and immune response. This is the body’s way of being efficient with its resources. When you’re being chased by a lion, you don’t want to waste resources on the small intestine. You’ll digest food some other time. You need every ounce of energy to get away and survive. But glucocorticoids have a nasty side effect. When they linger in the bloodstream (as they might due to chronic stress related to low rank) damage accumulates. It’s the physiological version of a government devoting too many resources to its......

...Work related stress develops because a person is unable to cope with the demands being placed on them. Stress, including work related stress, can be a significant cause of illness and is known to be linked with high levels of sickness absence, staff turnover and other issues such as more errors. Stress can hit anyone at any level of the business and recent research shows that work related stress is widespread and is not confined to particular sectors, jobs or industries. That is why a population-wide approach is necessary to tackle it. Definition of stress Stress can be described as: "The adverse reaction people have to excessive pressures or other types of demand placed on them at work." Stress is not an illness – it is a state. However, if stress becomes too excessive and prolonged, mental and physical illness may develop. Well-designed, organised and managed work is generally good for us and when insufficient attention to job design, work organisation and management has taken place, it can result in Work related stress. Work related stress develops because a person is unable to cope with the demands being placed on them. Stress, including work related stress, can be a significant cause of illness and is known to be linked with high levels of sickness absence, staff turnover and other issues including fatigue which in turn can lead to errors in the workplace. We can say that “Stress causes some people to break, and other to break records.” Stress or pressure......

...Cause and Effects of Stress in Children Stress is a response to a factor or situation that negatively affects the physical, emotional, or psychological existence of a person. Stress is good in small quantities as it motivates a person making him/her more productive. However, too much stress is detrimental to a person. Stress can interfere with the general life of a person. Most people assume that stress only affects adults. However, statistics indicate that stress also affects children. Children face intense pressure from their environment. Continuous stress in children is harmful to their activities, health, and development. There are a number of causes and effects of toxic stress in children. Stress can be caused by both negative and positive situations. Children living in abusive environments, both physical and emotional, experience stress. Arnold wrote that children who are bullied are in continuous state of depression. They, therefore, alienate themselves from their colleagues. Parents who constantly beat their children are also causes of stress. The fear that is manifested in children disorients them. They will not be able to talk about what they feel to anybody but rather keep to themselves. Events such as accidents, loss of loved ones, and rejection are also causes of stress in children. Social change patterns in children cause many stressful situations. Children at puberty yearn for freedom. This creates tension between them and the parents, who are constantly......

...A Conceptual Analysis of Stress Alanda James University of South Alabama Abstract Stress is a prominent factor that affects the lives of people who deliver healthcare to patients every day. It is important to examine the concept because unhealthy stress can cause multiple effects on the caregiver and patient. Positive forms of stress can be beneficial to practice, and negative forms of stress can put practice in danger. A conceptual analysis of stress will strategically define the concept, explore antecedents, and pinpoint consequences associated with stress. The mental and physical effects of stress will be examined, and the link between effects and antecedents will be established. The antecedents of stress are essential to identifying the underlying problem, and prevention methods can be implored once those problems have been identified. In addition, cases will be presented reflecting the use of stress to educate the reader with knowledge and recognition of the concept. A model case, related case, contrary case, and borderline case are given in the text as examples to illustrate the concept of stress. A Conceptual Analysis of Stress Stress is a concept that derives from strain placed on a human being. Dictionary.com (2012) defines stress as “mental, emotional, or physical strain or tension”. Positive and negative aspects of stress exist depending on the particular incident or situation. Stress can be activated when a student is nervous about presenting a speech,...

...DEFINITION OF STRESS Based on Organizational Behavior text book, stress is defined as an adaptive response to a situation that is perceived as challenging or threatening to a person’s well being.
