I Am So Stressed Out!

dreamstime_s_18800022Dear Amy,
I am a teenager who seems to have a lot more responsibilities and more homework assignments every year. New teachers, new school, and new friends. I am so stressed and have no idea how to deal with it all. How can I relieve all of this stress? ….. Stressed Out

Dear Stressed Out,
The solution to your problem is to learn to relax. Take a break from your homework if it is getting too overwhelming.  Some of the ways to deal with or decrease stress are by listening to your favorite tunes, reading a book with a nice cup of hot chocolate, or anything else that makes your relaxed. Other things people do include exercise, write their feelings down in a journal about what is causing their stress, taking on an art project, or simply taking a nap.

Good luck!

    Good advice, Amanda. Since stress is a part of life, learning to relax is a skill that will benefit teens for a long time to come. Another good piece of advice is to learn to break up large tasks into smaller, more manageable goals.
