The school year has just begun, and that can mean only one thing: stress. Many students can feel stressed, whether it’s with school, family or peers.

“I stress over homework, and [being president of] Anime Club and my friends’ problems,” Laney Bouck (11) said.

Students can feel stressed when they are faced with challenges that they are unsure of how to handle.

“It’s very difficult for me to juggle all [my] problems. With the new bell schedule, I find it hard for me to finish all my homework and carry all my books,” Taylor Lush (11) said.

Stress can have both good and bad results, but being overly stressed can be detrimental to a student’s health.

“I have struggled with anxiety and scalp inflammation due to my heightened levels of stress,” Bouck (11) said.

There are many ways students can relieve stress. Whether it’s reading a book, listening to music or playing a sport, living stress-free is possible.

“I play baseball or hang out with my friends. It really makes me forget about everything,” Chase Hinchman (11) said.

As the school year goes on, students will continue dealing with stress making it important for them to find a method to limit and prevent their stress.
