Managing Stress - Brainsmart - BBC

Don't distress yourself, plan ahead

Distress is the negative affects on stress. Which could mean, you have too much homework and you're stressing yourself out. You have practices and dance and you come home to a bunch of homework, how will it all get done?!!? You just need to calm down, plan ahead, and figure out how you will get it all done, because you can, and you will!

Dreading a test? Dont stress it, really.

ANXIETY. You don't need it. Dreading, apprehensive and impending disaster. You're not always going to know every single answer to every test. Therefore, when you don't, don't worry too much about it, you can do better on the next one. Make more time to study for yourself.

Coping strategies

There are lots of things you can do to help you relax, and put yourself in a better mood. If you play a sport, that sport could be a big one for you. If you like to exercise, a lot of people use this one, it is my favorite one to do because I love running and I know whenever I get mad or stressed out I just go to the gym or if it is nice outside, go run, get all the negative energy out of you. Listening to music and dancing about, a fun and silly way to make yourself feel better.Or talking to someone you are comfortable with, it helps me a lot when I text my friends and I just complain about how overwhelmed I am, and they listen and put me in a better mood!
