Dealing With Stress And Anxiety

Sometimes life is very stressful. As a young person you can struggle with many issues: family, friends, school, your future, relationships, etc. And, you are busy! It is important to find a way to deal with stress. Do something that is relaxing and enjoyable, like exercising, going out with friends, playing sports or shopping. You are worth taking care of! Too much stress can result in headaches, stomach aches, body aches, burn-out, depression, exhaustion and physical illness. In addition to stress, it is normal to feel anxious about all the things going on in your life. Signs of anxiety include worrying a lot, feeling restless, having trouble concentrating, feeling irritable, and having tense muscles (e.g. jaw). High anxiety levels may result in phobias and panic attacks. If you are feeling anxious or stressed, please call one of the numbers listed in this section.

What exactly is anxiety?

Anxiety is our body’s reaction to perceived danger or important events. Anxiety is like an internal alarm system. It alerts us to danger and helps our body prepare to deal with it. For example, it allows us to jump out of the way of a speeding car. It also helps us to perform at our best, like when you are studying for that final exam. Anxiety is something that everyone experiences from time to time.
