Have you ever been really stressed about something? I’m sure we have all been stressed at some point in our lives and a lot of us would probably agree that online schooling is very stressful sometimes. However, we don’t always know how to deal with all that stress and that can be really hard. In an effort to help, here are some tips on how to deal with stress when it really gets to us.

First off, do whatever will make you happy. For example, taking a hot shower, listening to music, and coloring seems to really help me.

Secondly, try getting your feelings down on paper. This can be done in a journal, diary, or just a plain old notebook. You can even try writing a song!

Next, you can try talking to a trusted person like your friend, mom, dad, school counselor, teacher, etc.

Lastly, try thinking about what you are stressed about and try to think of ways you can make that stressor disappear. For example, if large amounts of homework or school-work from a certain class is making you stressed you can try talking to that certain teacher from that certain class about how they can help you stay caught up so you don’t have as much homework or schoolwork to be stressed about.

In the end, you can deal with stress in many ways and learn to stay calm in many situations, and for some people these tips work for anger management too!
