Effects of Stress

This week’s Tip focuses on stress, which is something that affects every person at every age. Some of our students feel an overwhelming amount of stress and pressure from their teachers, their parents, their friends, and even from themselves. Think of those students whose home life is chaotic; imagine the amount of stress they have experienced from the very moment they were born (and possibly in utero) and how their health has been affected from years and
