Stress and the Youth
Stress and its Effects on Youth Today

Managing Stress
Our Generation
-Many people believe that teenagers are lazy and believe that our generation as a whole are lazy. I highly disagree and believe our generation is hard working and under constant stress. Overall I believe teenagers are the most stressed.
-It is important for teens to maintain certain activities that can reduce stress and are responsible for maintaining these activities.
-I also think that the word "stress awareness" should be added to everyone's vocabulary. I hope that one day all adults will realize the hardships and responsibilities that teenagers will go through and can hopefully aim for reduced stress for the youth together as a whole.
Effects on the Body
Good and Bad Stress
Self Help
-All teens who are stressed out should learn to deal with their stress, anxiety, depression, and tension.
-It is best to learn to relax and develop a positive approach and to see things in a more positive way.
-Left unattended teen stress can potentially lead to anxiety disorder, teen depression or drug abuse. Teens should tackle stress and tension by identifying the situations that create negative feelings and responses.
-Living a healthy lifestyle with good food, relaxation, exercise, and regular communication would be some good things to do.
-What is stress? Well.. stress is a state of mental tension and worry that can be caused by problems in your life such as work, school, etc. Stress is a normal part of life that can either help us learn and grow or can cause us significant problems.
-People usually feel stress whenever they are overloaded and wonder whether they can cope with the pressure placed upon them.
-All young people, especially teenagers are likely to experience stress at some point throughout their lives.

-Teens across the USA are feeling high levels of stress that they say is negatively affecting every aspect of their lives. These stressors range from school to friends, work and family.
-Stress is considered to be more dangerous for teenagers than it is for adults, this is mainly because the teenage state is a stage where there is very little to no understanding of how to manage stress.
-Most teenagers can go through many situations that can cause them tension and stress. When overloaded stress occurs to teens, inadequately managed stress can lead to anxiety, withdrawal, aggression, physical illness, or poor coping skills such as drug and/or alcohol use.
-Many people believe that there is only bad stress in the world but sometimes small amounts of stress can actually be good for some people. There are two major types of stress.
-Good stress can help some people achieve hard to reach goals. This kind of stress is called eustress, it can help us learn new things, adapt to different changes, and to think creatively. This type of stress can also make us aware of danger and enable us to escape from situations when we need to.
-Bad stress can occur when too much stress builds around us. When the body feels there is too much stress it will then begin to break down and cause many bad symptoms.
-Due to lots of amounts of stress, normal bodily functions can get disrupted and broken down. There are many effects on the human body that can happen.
-People might tend to get nervous, shake or sweat, loose their appetite, or feel hungry. Others might get stomachaches and back pain, and some can even possibly get ulcers.
-A woman's menstrual cycle can even get messed up, and the immune system does not work well when you are under a lot of stress.
-It has been proven that when your stressed your also more susceptible to getting sick and getting colds.
-Also being stressed out can preoccupy you. You're less able to think things through, less able to concentrate or remember certain things.
