Ways to ease the tension
(HealthDayNews) -- If your teenagers complain about being stressed, take time to listen them, advise experts at the Adolescent Medicine Clinic of the University of Washington Center.
Schoolwork and social pressures, conflict at home and competitive sports can mount to the point where your child may feel it's all too much to bear.
Here are some things your teens can do to reduce their stress levels:
- Try deep breathing, meditation, or other relaxation techniques.
- Get a good night's sleep.
- If behind in schoolwork, organize daily activities with a calendar as soon as possible.
- Finish an evening of studying with some leisure reading or by listening to music.
