Take care of yourselves
Topic: Stress, Stress

I am always looking for information that can make your life better. Here is some info that is easy for you to be aware of and about which you might be able to do something. Figure out where and how you can get your exercise just in case your school is not providing it. If your frig is empty at home can you discuss the situation with a counselor? Do you have a part time job so that you can budget your food? It's hard but think it through.

  • Stress and exercise: Though people say they experience positive benefits from exercise, such as a better mood and less stress, few say they make the time to exercise every day. The survey found that more than one-third of adults (37 percent) and one in five teens (20 percent) report exercising less than once a week or not at all. Teens who report high stress during the past school year also say they spend an average of 3.2 hours online a day, compared with two hours among those reporting low stress levels during the past school year.
  • Stress and eating: Twenty-seven percent of adults say they eat to manage stress and 34 percent of those who report overeating or eating unhealthy foods because of stress say this behavior is a habit. Of the 23 percent of teens who report skipping a meal in the past month due to stress, 39 percent say they do this weekly or more.
This info comes from The Stress in America survey which was conducted online within the United States by Harris Interactive, Inc., on behalf of the American Psychological Association between Aug. 3 and 31, 2013, among 1,950 adults ages 18+ and 1,018 teens, ages 13 to 17, who reside in the U.S. This online survey is not based on a probability sample and therefore no estimates of theoretical sampling error can be calculated.
