Your time in high school can become very stressful, especially around the end of the semester with testing and final projects coming due.
Teens all across the world experience stress as a result. Stress might make you feel as though you're constantly exhausted, less motivated, or even more agitated, sad, and worrisome. Teens' physical and emotional health are still deteriorating.
“In the teen years, due to hormonal changes, stress tends to influence the emotional functioning of the brain, which in turn impacts the cognitive and executive functioning,” (Manage School Stress)
Now, while stress is not good for your mental health, mindful activities that can take your focus away from whatever your having to deal with. “Break up your study time as well. Instead of trying to study for your history test for 3 hours straight the night before, break it up into 30-minute sessions each day that week. This makes it easier to process the information and keep up your morale at the same time.” (Cope With Stress)
Keeping a journal, using a relaxation app, learning to identify and get ready for stressful times by doing all of the above, and reducing your caffeine intake, and exercise are a few coping mechanisms. However, different cultures have different strategies for handling it. With so many important life decisions to make, it will never be easy to graduate from high school stress-free and happy. Simply try to adjust to activities that relieve tension.
Recall that this moment will pass; take a big breath; you can handle it!
