I chose my personal questions, “what causes all my stress?”. The reason I chose this is because the past three years of my life have been lived on at least three hours of homework a night and four hours of sleep barely able to function throughout the day. This stress causes almost all the rest of my problems in my life currently, whether that be bad health or mental health, or poor grades, which I somehow manage to maintain grades, or even a poor social life. The only real facts I know about this stress is that school is the main cause and it causes an imbalance in my physical and mental states.
I want to know the hard facts about stress in teens and how it affects us mentally and physically. I want to know what’s the leading factor of this stress. Also how can you prevent it from happening to you or others. How can you tell if someone is experiencing this stress?
According to an article written by Understand.org, a main factor to teen stress is the pressure to perform and succeed. They said “Kids who’ve struggled in school for many years often come to highschool with a history of setbacks.” meaning kids aren’t mentally prepared for failure or what to do if it happens, putting a lot of stress on the teens shoulders. Another article done by Healthline stated that health problems from stress can range from headache and stomach ache to increased depression and heart attack. These problems are at a much higher percentage in teens, 54% to be exact(article done by USA today).Tags: #stress #highschool #trump2017
