HOW TO COPE WITH STRESS AT SCHOOL

Realistically, everyone will experience stress at one time or the other. Stress could occur in different forms.
Common forms of stress are:
   

    1.  Peer-induced stress.
“In high school, kids have more freedom and they’re more rebellious. If you don’t join them, they’ll think you’re not cool.” – says Christina.
“I was pressured to go out with a boy. When I
refused, I was labeled a lesbian. And that was when I was just 14 years old.” – says Jennifer.
     
    Other instances like these are categorized as peer-induced form of school stress. Basically, it occurs when you have to make decisions concerning your relationship among your peers. This could cause a lot of worry and stress.

 2.     Teacher-induced stress.
“My teachers want me to excel and get the best grades possible, and I feel pressure to gain their approval.” – says Sandra.
“Even if you have worthwhile goals for your life for your life, some teachers make you feel like dirt if you don’t pursue the academic goals that they think you should.” – says Naomi.

  Our teachers/Lecturers can also cause a lot of stress to us, aside the assignments, projects, complicating exams, and all... they expect us to perform very well in all of them. While trying to satisfy them, we cause ourselves some stress - specifically when we don't do it the right way.


3.     Other stress factors.
Upcoming tests, Homework, Friends' expectations, Parents’ high expectations, living up to your own high-expectations, Bullying, Sexual harassment, and some others...are common sources of school stress.
