"What stresses me doesn't stress other people, and what stresses other people doesn't stress me." Phanisree A., 1/5/16.
After speaking with Dr. Aderhold, we discovered that being "over-committed and overwhelmed" can affect an adolescent just as much as homework. Sleep deprivation as a result of working late is hard on your body, too. After-school activities and extracurriculars probably cause stress because they take away from homework time... but they also help to relieve stress with friends. Where is this stress coming from?!
We need to help people to figure it out in their personal lives, and this is why a general help for stress doesn't always work. Try some strategies that suit your individual needs. For example- if you need time management help: "The 2-minute rule" may help, or timing your working pace. Providing smart goals for yourself can improve your efficiency. In the next week or so, we will have a collection of ways to help created on "Padlet".
