Tips from the Counselor-Stress Management

Tips from the Counselor-Stress Management

Student stress is usually related to everyday experiences, worries, and challenges at school, at home, or within a peer group. For example, students may get stressed due to friendship conflicts, low self esteem, academic difficulties, and family problems. While each student responds to stress differently, unresolved stress can lead to feelings of anxiety, irritability, poor concentration, aggression, sickness, and fatigue.

Kids can benefit from learning and practicing stress management techniques. Students who develop these skills are better able to cope with stress in a healthy way. Once students can identify when and why they are experiencing stress, they can take a proactive approach to manage it. Some of these skills may include:

  • Problem solving

  • Talking to a friend or a family member

  • Writing in a journal

  • Drawing or doing something creative

  • Exercising

  • Focusing on self-care (eating well, getting enough sleep, etc…)
