Stress Information for Teens
Health Tips About the Mental and Physical Consequences of Stress Including Information About the Different Kinds of Stress, Symptoms of Stress, Frequent Causes of Stress, Stress Management Techniques, and MoreBook - 2008
From the Publisher: Teens often struggle to balance their own desires with the demands placed upon them by parents and others in positions of authority over them, including teachers, coaches, and employers. They may face internal pressures from the urge to achieve independence and external pressures from their peers. Puberty's hormones can bring confusing emotional and physical changes. Furthermore, in today's fast-paced world, many may find that every minute of the day is filled with constant activity. All this can lead to significant amounts of stress. Some stress is good, and most stress is only temporary; but when stress becomes chronic, it can lead to mental and physical consequences that are unhealthy. Stress Information for Teens describes the difference between good stress (sometimes called eustress) and the kinds of stress that can lead to symptoms such as impaired concentration, appetite changes, headaches, insomnia, gastrointestinal problems, depression, anger, anxiety, and other physical and mental concerns. The most common causes of stress in teens are described, and facts are provided about a broad variety of techniques that can be used for stress management, including nutrition, exercise, journaling, breathing techniques, and massage therapy. The book concludes with a directory of stress and stress management resources and suggestions for additional reading.
