STRESS MANAGEMENTSKILLS FOR ADOLESCENT

  • Talk about problems with others
  • Take deep breaths, accompanied by thinking or saying aloud, “I can handle this”
  • Perform progressive muscle relaxation, which involves repeatedly tensing and relaxing large muscles of the body
  • Set small goals and break tasks into smaller, manageable chunks
  • Exercise and eat regular meals
  • Get proper sleep
  • Break the habit of relying on caffeine or energy drinks to get through the day
  • Focus on what you can control (your reactions, your actions) and let go of what you cannot (other people’s opinions and expectations)
  • Lower unrealistic expectations
  • Accept yourself as you are; identify your unique strengths and build on them
  • Give up on the idea of perfection, both in yourself and in others
