Title of Bulletin Board: Swish Your Stress Away

Category: Other

Suggested Grade Level: All

Materials: Bullentin Board Paper, Markers, Printouts, Basketball netting


Stress Management is a new elective at our high school and also a very important topic for all students to discuss. This bulletin board titled "Swish Your Stress Away" was displayed during March Madness (hence the basketball theme) and it displays nine ways that students can reduce stress...

Eat a healthy diet
Read a book
Listen to music
Keep a journal
Practice PMR (progressive muscle relaxation)
Practice PSR (progressive sensory relaxation)
Practice Guided Imagery
Start an Exercise Program
Take a Walk

We felt as though this was a very important topic to display in the hallway because 1 in 5 Americans struggle with a mental illness. It is very important to talk about mental health and stress in the classroom.
