Stress sucks and it seems to be on the rise. And according to a recent article in teenvogue and a new study: The American Freshman: National Norms Fall 2010…Super-stressed is just status-quo for today's teens…Among the more than 200,000 incoming college freshmen who participated in the study, emotion health is at its lowest point in over 20 years."
Teens, like many of us, are being driven to achieve and succeed (to say nothing of get into college) from before they stop pooping in their diapers. What do you thinnk happens when stressed out teens become adults…does all the stress disappear magically, or are we creating a nation of the highly stressed and emotionally unhealthy? Teen or not, what about you and stress? Is your emotional health at a high or low? Tell us what's stressing you (and/or your kids) out…you'll feel better if you get it off your chest.
