Beat the stress!

Learn to balance school, life at home… and still have time for fun.

Your thoughts (151)

Between chores, seeing your friends and doing your homework, it can feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day.

Take a deep breath – we’ve got you covered. These tips will help you cope when you feel stressed out.

List it up
Make a list of all the things you need to do at the start of each week. Include chores (like cooking and cleaning), fun stuff (like hanging out with your friends), and school work.

Order it
What are the most important things on your list? What needs to be done today and what can be done later in the week? By ordering the things you need to do, you can focus on a few things each day rather than feeling overwhelmed by a mountain of tasks! Break up bigger tasks into smaller pieces. It will feel easier to tackle this way.

Take care of yourself
By looking after yourself, you’ll be able to tackle your to-do list more easily. Do something just for you at least once a day, like setting aside five minutes to drink a cup of tea before doing your homework.

Be honest
Talk to your parents or an adult when you’re feeling stressed out about the amount of school work you have. Explain that you have a lot of school work this week and ask if you can trade chores with a sibling or make up for it by doing a bigger share the next week. When your friends want to hang out all afternoon, but you have a test to study for, hang out for a short while before heading home to study. You can also try studying together – but be careful about getting distracted by chatting instead of working.

I cannot tell anyone that I lack focus of that I've been stressed out lately because I feel like it's my fault and I shouldn't burden anyone with it. Plus I feel like who ever I might tell might be too judgemental Is it wrong to feel this way?

I would suggest that you speak to someone. I usually feel better about my anxieties and worries when I share my feelings with a friend or family member. We tend to make our problems more complicated then they actually are when we keep it to ourselves and who knows, someone else may be experiencing something similar and will be able to give you good advice.

I would suggest managing your time better. Maybe use the first hour after school to tidy up and do chores then settle down to do school work. If speaking to your parents doesn't help then maybe showing them the amount of work you have will help them understand better. Then maybe you can discuss doing chores every second day.

It's normal to feel the way you do especially if you were used to being the only child. Your baby brother is younger and less independent than you are and probably requires more of your mother's time than you do. I'd recommend that you help your mother out with your brother, maybe feed him or help bath him and this way you won't feel excluded but more as a part of a family unit.

I always feel stressed and alone , ii lost loads of friends for tge pass few years , myy family they putting me aside but ii thank God he's srill with me each day and I'm getting stronger , wiser , I'm better much better each day

Hi Springster. The best thing to do now is to create a study timetable which you intend on sticking too. You'll need to 1) Divide however long you have until your exams by how many subjects you study e.g. Maths, Science, English 2) Then for each, divide all the topics and areas you need to cover accordingly 3) Keep it very simple or add extra fields, such as to note specific things you want to achieve in a session. You can also use cards for short info revision, pictures for memory and study with a friend so you can quiz each other. Give yourself enough time to cover all your subjects and be consistent. I know its easy to become distracted but this is the final quarter of the year so hang in there. Good luck

Hi Springster. Stress can creep in around exam time or when you feel like you have too much on your plate. You need to make a plan so you can bring some order to your life and take some weight off your shoulders. Getting 7 to 8 hours of it will help your brain to relax, making you concentrate better when you study. Silence is golden. So try to find a quiet area to study, like the library. For every hour or 90 minutes that you’re studying, take a 10-minute break. D for distraction. You know the deal, you tell yourself that you’ll only chat for 5 minutes and next you know, it's sleeping time and you haven’t finished your revisions.So put your phone off when its time to study. Good luck and chill out, you've got this, we all believe in you!

Say that u dont mean to cause trouble but u really need to talk and express ur feelings. She most likely doesn't even realise what she is doing

Hi Springster, matric is the most stressful year of high school because there is a lot at stake. That being said you and your boyfriend can try to find a way to spend time together. You can study together or you can ask him to just put aside a few hours a week for the two of you talk and spend time together. Tell him that you don't want to interfere with his studying and you just want to see him because you miss him. He may not be able to be there all the time when you want him to.

Hi Springster, it could be that you are so stressed your body is reacting physically. Try a few relaxation techniques before you study like tensing up and relaxin, messaging your temples and imagining yourself in a place that makes you feel calm, safe and relaxed. Drink lots of water and try to avoid coffee while studying because it can trigger headaches.

Hi Springster, maybe you should try taking a nap before you study. Drink lots of water, eat fruits and even play music while you study. Take breaks every 45 minutes. Make sure your environment isn't cluttered. Keep trying different ways of staying alert while you study till you find something that works well for you.

Hey OG, thank you for reaching out to us. We understand that this could be quite a stressful time for you. First of all, we want to say that it's very mature of you to be taking up such heavy responsibilities at such a young age. Big ups to you! Also, remember that your mom is your best friend and that she wants the best for you. Perhaps you should try talking to her without being disrespectful. See if you can show her proof that you are doing your part at home by being responsible and doing your chores. Then you can ask her for time to do other things outside of home. Remember, our parents just usually want to see if we are responsible enough to take care of ourselves and contribute in some way to the household. All the best!

Hey Springster, try to take the tips listed in the article, they might be helpful. Don't worry about being an only child. There are disadvantages and advantages to being an only child and with having siblings. Do make sure that you have a support system though. When you are having issues, speak to a trusted adult like a teacher or a relative and try to have some bonding sessions with friends whenever you can.

Hey Springster, thank you for leaving your comment here. We really think you're right about having support as you're going through school. If you can't get your parents to help you with school, then it's important to find another adult that you can trust to help you. This can be anyone from a relative, an older sibling, or a teacher at school. it's also always a good idea to ask one of your peers at school to help you out with some of the subjects that you are struggling with.
