Comments[edit source]

Hi, my book chapter is on the relationship of junk food and psychological distress. I include some emotional theories which are related to food consumption as a result of emotions. Might be helpful for your last incomplete section :) https://en.wikiversity.org/wiki/Motivation_and_emotion/Book/2019/Junk_food_and_psychological_distress --U3141421 (discusscontribs) 12:13, 20 October 2019 (UTC)

Could include helpful links to phone applications to help decrease stress such as Headspace and Calm.--U3141421 (discusscontribs) 08:57, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

Hi, would like to suggest a method to reduce stress called 4-7-8 deep breathing technique, that you might like to consider adding to your book chapter. here is the link to read further about it https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/324417.php. All the best with the chapter.--U3151962 (discusscontribs) 07:55, 12 October 2019 (UTC)

I like your exam stress topic a lot, as so many people deal with it. I am talking about humor in my chapter, and I read an interesting study done. They talked about how students' test anxiety was reduced when the teachers added in an extra multiple choice option that was just silly and outrageous. It was a very interesting study, and I think you would find it intriguing given your chapter topic. You can find the PDF here: https://www.tandfonline.com/doi/pdf/10.1080/87567550009595834.

Written expression[edit source]

  1. Written expression

    1. Check and correct use of affect vs. effect.
