Dealing With Stress:

A little bit of stress is healthy, but too much stress can be harmful to your mental health and should be addressed.

See the chart to the right to asses if your stress levels are healthy or not. If you answered “often” to 2+ or “sometimes” to 3+ of the questions, your stress levels are likely too high.

Here are some helpful tips for managing stress:

  • Communicate: Talk to your houseparent, teachers, or the Maeda Health Centre Team about your stress levels. They will help to support you

  • Sleep and eat: Make sure you’re eating all 3 meals and getting at least 8 hours of sleep

  • Breathe: Taking a few minutes to breathe can seriously reduce stress and panic attacks. Click here for a step by step guide on a breathing technique designed to reduce stress
