Stress management

School stress can — believe it or not — be easily managed if you organize your time and work well. Stress is a natural feeling of not being able to cope with specific demands and events, occurring as a physical response when humans face some sort of challenge or threat. Not being able to manage your stress can lead to physical and mental effects, slowing down some normal bodily functions. Therefore, it is important to keep a positive attitude and learn how to manage your time more efficiently.  

Keeping an organized schedule and doing your homework as soon as possible can prevent unnecessary stress. Furthermore, seeking out social support from your teachers or advisor and maintaining a network of close friends can improve your resilience to life’s stressors. Overall, it is imperative to identify the sources of your stress and find ways to overcome it, keeping a balanced life with time for school, work, rest, relationships, and fun.  

“I personally manage stress by getting homework done as soon as I can,” said Brian Yeung (‘22). “Leaving it behind for the last minute will really hurt your grade and I can speak from a personal standpoint. This is something I would definitely advise underclassmen to do.”
