Whoa! I'm Stressing Out

Body's Reaction to Stress: Your heart beats faster. More sugar goes into your bloodstream. More blood flows to your muscles. Your muscles get tense. You breathe faster. Your hands get moist. Your mouth gets dry.

Lessens muscle tension, uses up extra sugar in the bloodstream, and helps you sleep better.

Make a Daily Plan
List all the things you have to do and cross them off as you finish them. At the end of the day, review your list and note how much you have accomplished!

Rest and Sleep
When you are rested, your body can respond to stressors better. This will help keep you healthy.

Be Healthy with your Friends
Ride bikes, take a walk, play tag, or kick the soccer ball around. Support and encourage one another.

Word Wall:
Stress is the response to any demand on your mind or body.
Stressor is something that causes stress.
Attitude is your way of thinking, acting, and feeling.
