What does school related stress means to other kids?

So why is this bad?
ITS A CHAIN REACTION!
These are the short term reaction:Lack of sleep ~> Perform poorly in school ~> Became overwhelmed
Long term ones? MUCH MUCH worse:
Chronic Headaches, Anxiety disorder, Mood Swings, Heart attack due to blood pressure issues
Stress more often also leads into depression and the wanting to end their own life.
"Suicide rate [in teens] due to stress is about 12 in every 100,000
How to fix this?
-Negative or depressed feelings
-Increased emotional reactions
-Loss of motivation or self confidence
Another way is to find a way to release stress.
How can we do that? Find a thing that we enjoy doing, and make room to do it. TO "make room" we have to learn time management.
