Stress is what you feel when you react to pressure, from school, work, after-school activities, family, friends or from inside yourself wanting to do well in school, wanting to fit in. Stress is a normal reaction for people of all ages. It’s caused by your body’s own mechanism to protect itself from emotional or physical pressure or from danger.
Is stress always bad?
No. In fact, a little bit of stress is good. Most of us couldn’t push ourselves to do well at things – sports, music, dance, work and school – without feeling the pressure of wanting to do well. Without the stress caused by a deadline, most of us also wouldn’t be able to finish projects or get to work or school on time.
If stress is so normal, why do I feel so bad?
With all the things that happen at your age, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. Things that you can’t control are often the most frustrating. A common reaction to stress is to criticize ourself. You may even get so upset that things don’t seem fun anymore and life looks pretty grim. When this happens, it’s easy to think there’s nothing you can do to change things.
How to overcome stress
- Eating well-balanced meals on a regular basis
- Drinking less caffeine and water at regular interval
- Getting enough sleep
- Exercising on a regular basis
- Laugh, laugh and laugh consider it sound medical advice to indulge in it as often as you can. If you don’t like laughter, then take your medicine – laugh anyway. Do whatever makes you laugh – movies, sitcoms, Tom and Jerry, records, books, cartoons, jokes, friends. Give yourself permission to laugh – long and loud and out loud. The people around you may think you’re strange, but sooner or later they’ll join in even if they don’t know what you’re laughing about. Some diseases may be contagious, but none is as contagious as the cure . . . laughter.

- Take control of what you can. For example, if you’re working too many hours and you don’t have time to study enough, you may need to cut back your work hours.
- Give yourself a break.
- Accept, Appreciate and Arose, Find someone to talk to.
