Managing Stress

Print Page

Everyone experiences stress at some time or another.  It might be caused by problems at school or work, relationships with friends, siblings or parents, moving to a new place, or a traumatic event.

Stress can affect people in different ways:
  • sad, angry, or anxious
  • lack of confidence
  • avoiding other people
  • upset stomach
  • headache
  • problems eating or sleeping
You probably can’t get rid of stress, so how do you manage it?
  • Express yourself – draw, write, play music
  • Exercise – walk, run, shoot baskets
  • Avoid harmful behaviors like drugs, cigarettes and alcohol
  • Talk to someone – ask a friend to listen or call a hotline
