Teenagers today lead more hectic lives than ever, and with a chaotic lifestyle comes the higher chance of stress. In some ways, teenagers experience stress more than adults with the pressures of schooling, after school jobs, relationships, self-esteem issues, etc….the list goes on and on. Since TAKS and STARR is right around the corner, Trojan News thought that we’d share some tension- relieving tips on how to relax and cope with your anxiety
If you think you might be overly stressed, reach out to your parents and tell them how you feel. Inadequately managed stress can lead to aggression, depression, substance abuse, self- harm, physical illness, and even suicide.
