Study Coach on Youtube

In the first story titled ‘What is Stress? Health & Wellness’ on YouTube, the first stage of Stress is presented. This is the story of a young migrant name Huda, he is taking  a lot of risks in life, teaming up with smugglers in an attempt to cross the English Channel. The first stage of Stress known as ‘Alarm Stage’ is applied in the story. The concept of the ‘Alarm Stage’ is the work of Hans Selye (1956). 

The event of the crossing does not go according to plan, you will find out what happens in the second video, where the focus is on the second and third stage of Stress (Resistance and Exhaustion stage). 

The learning of the first stage of stress and subsequent stages, is not just relevant to events such as risk taking, but it is applicable to all potential stress events.
