What is Teenage Stress?

It has often been said that the teenage years are the "best
years of your life".
However, anyone who says that does
not remember what it is like being a teenager.
school, life, parents, friends, and the fact that all of
them want all of your time, there is no way to get away
from the petty concerns and strains that can lead to
However, nobody seems willing to give up
any of the time they demand from you, so you find yourself
torn in a thousand different directions with nowhere to
turn to for help.
Fortunately, you do not need to deal
with stress all on your own.
Rather, you can find plenty
of help, just as long as you look for it.
teenagers rarely look for help and many of the assets
available to them are simply ignored.
Thus, your teen
stress keeps getting worse.
The first place to look for relief from teen stress is at
school. There is a certain class of people who desperately
want to help teens get through their problems and find
solutions, but they usually sit in their offices waiting in
vain for someone to talk to them.
These people are
guidance counselors and they are there to help you.
However, it is very rare for someone to avail themselves of
this prime opportunity for assistance, so actually sitting
down with somebody is a treat for them and they will do all
they can to help.
True, most people think that guidance
counselors are really just lost souls who can't seem to get
out of school, but that is not the case.
counselors decided on their career because they want to
help others. Which means that they want to help you.
As well, you can get help for teen stress through your
teachers. True, most of the help you get will probably be
for your work in the classroom but, strange as it may seem,
teachers are actually human beings.
They want to connect
with their students so that, when you go to see them, they
will be happy to help you. If you go to them in order to
get help with your schoolwork, they will happily give you
They can help you through any issues or
difficulties that you may be having and you will can learn
more from them after class than you will during class.
Such one-on-one sessions can help them narrow down issues
in a way that they cannot while they are lecturing to a
room full of students.
Additionally, once you sit down with your teachers, you may
actually discover that you enjoy talking to them. After
all, to repeat a point, they are people. And because they
spend so much time in the company of teenagers, they
understand teen stress.
However, they also understand it
from a philosophical perspective that can breathe some
fresh air into the problems that you are confronting.
Though you may not always enjoy the answers they can
provide, they will be worth thinking about and, in the
fullness of time, you will probably discover that they
provided a very good insight into your problems.
Another excellent source for teen stress is with your
parents. This is because of a simple fact that you may not
want to accept. This is the simple fact that parents tend
to have children who are very similar to them.
really not pleasant to think about, since that means that
you may turn out to be like your parents. But, let us put
that aside for now.
Your parents were once your age (strange as that may seem)
and teens often have to go through very similar problems.
Thus, your parents have felt teen stress and they know what
it is like. Sure, they may not want to admit that it was
anything special, but they will, hopefully, remember that
it was not easy at the time.
So if you really need to get
some sort of advice or help, sit down and talk to your
parents. Not only will you get some sort of help, but you
will also make their day. After all, how many parents get
the chance to really connect with their teenage children?
Teen stress is one of the hardest things to get through,
but you can rest assured that it has been done. Billions
of people in the world have all had to go through the
travails of the teenage years and they have through to the
So prepare yourself, get help when you need
it, and look for help when you can. By relying on people
who have "been there, done that" you can see your way clear
to the other side.
Then, you can safely look back on your
teen stress and say stupid things like, "the teenage years
are the best years of your life!"
What is the Fight/Flight Response? Why do we still have it?
The ‘Fight or Flight Response’ is a physiological reaction and is the body’s response to a stressor.
Changes in hormones prepare a person to either stay and deal with a stressor or to take flight/run away. This immediate state of alarm is when the body prepares to take action, and in this state a person will be extremely alert to their surroundings but also very anxious and possibly unable to concentrate.
