During the workshop, we were taught the definitions of stress, types of learner (Visual, Auditory, Kinesthetic, and Auditory Digital), what stress means to professionals in physicians, psychologists and sociologists.

I strongly believe this workshop is crucial as students will always have to deal with stress in some ways, such as workload, exams, relationships, family etc. Therefore it is important to not let stress overwhelm us. To conclude there are many psychical effects of stress including tension headaches, migraines, and digestive system problems. There are also psychological effects, for instance, depression, anxiety affecting your focus, or decision-making.

Before suggesting the solution of tackling stress by Dr. Herbert Chiu, he gave us an intriguing machine called bio dot that can detect one's level of stress. At the same time, another test let me know my character---forget people name easily. Therefore, I will remember others with diligence.

To begin with, I liked the content of the whole workshop, from the way Dr. Herbert Chiu explained how stress is experienced differently for different people to various definitions of stress. The demonstration regarding people’s behavior when recalling past incidents or constructing a story was very interesting for me as it we could use it to determine if someone is lying or not.

To add on, Dr. Herbert Chiu described diverse ways of coping with stress, from the individualistic perspective to the society’s perspective. He made us value the importance of meditation and creating peace within ourselves.
