Stress Management Tips for School

 Stress Management Tips for School

By Maura Baker

School is stressful. There’s a lot of pressure to take advanced classes, get good grades and be well-rounded, and this is often true for many education levels. If you have a learning difference, school can be especially stressful, as it can be hard to grasp material and comprehend concepts. However, there are ways that can help you manage your school-related stressors. Here are a few examples:


Doing meditation and yoga can help you be present in the moment, especially when thinking about future assignments due is stressful. Of course, it takes practice, but being able to focus on what is happening in the moment can greatly relieve stress and anxiety over the future.

Ask for Help

School work can be very stressful if you don’t understand the concepts. Asking for help is a great way to reduce stress in this situation. Maybe ask a friend who understands to study with you, or ask your teachers about going to office hours (trust me, they most likely will not mind!).  

Know Yourself

While it is hard to be self-aware at times, knowing yourself and what you can handle is important and not getting burned out. Know when you need to take a break while doing your homework; know when to say no. Remember that it’s okay to need a break sometimes!

Find Hobbies That Make You Happy

Hobbies that make you feel happy and good about yourself are definitely huge stress relievers. If you like going on nature walks, reading, writing, etc, make these things one of your priorities! Having things you like in life can make the things you don’t like so much seem easier to do.

One of the most important things about stress relieving is to know what works for you. With a good support system and a knowledge of your own limits, academic work can become less and less stressful.
