Mental wellness is being comfortable with people around you, your surroundings, and yourself. Emotional wellness is how you react to events that occur in your life. One of the main factors is stress. There are three stages of stress. The first one is the alarm stage and in this stage you decide to stay and deal with the stress, or you escape it (fight or flight). The second stage is the resistance and this happens when you stay and deal with the stress. During this your body may feel week and tired from using so much energy. The last stage is called the exhaustion stage and it is called this because when the stress lasts too long, your body basically shuts down because you cannot deal with the stress anymore. One way to manage stress is my telling yourself it will pass and you'll be okay!

He had not been alive for 9 minutes, until doctors that were at the gym used an AED on him. He is doing great now, and always is careful about his health. When we get injuries, we cannot ignore them. Even if you get a cu or scrape you should get it cleaned and bandaged up before getting hurt again.
