Stressed Out

I’m feeling really stressed out and overwhelmed with school. When I get home, I just want to go straight to bed. What can I do to feel better and have more energy?

Eat some good food before you sleep. Wash your face. Take care of the basics.

Vicken, 10th Grader

Hang out with friends or listen to music.

Try taking a break every now and then. Don’t procrastinate. It’s a bad habit and hard to break. Work hard and then reward yourself with fun!

Lealoa, 11th Grader

Instead of going straight to bed, try taking a walk to relax yourself. Some time spent outside in the fresh air can do wonders. If you don’t want to go outside, partake in a hobby of yours or spend some time talking to your friends.

Rosie, 11th Grader

Eat the right kinds of foods. Try to take one thing at a time. When you are feeling stressed, try doing exercise to get your body back on track!

Evontay, 11th Grader

Sometimes sacrifices are necessary. As much as you don’t want to cut back on activities, in the end it can help. Forcing yourself to do it all, will only make you feel worse.

Going out for a jog can give you more energy! Also, talking to other people is a great way to de-stress.
