Being stressful can really make you a handful. Stress can be induced by an increase of workload, moving to a new home, an increase of responsibility, and many more different reasons.

The increase of workload and responsibilities is the most prevalent cause of stress for high school students. An increase in stress levels is seen especially for high school seniors as there are several new responsibilities that could increase their stress levels, such as college applications.

During the fall of their senior year, high school students have to fill out different parts college applications that includes: personal statement, supplements, FAFSA, CSS Profile(depending on the college). Filling out all of these applications leaves a dent in the social lives of the students and their sleep schedule. The students often have to choose between sleeping for an extra hour or working on their college essays. As the restless nights are gradually being added to the stack of lost nights doing work the students become much more lethargic and unwilling to go to school. The saying goes: “school is the root of all evil,” doesn’t it? Well at least that is how it goes amongst the senior class.

There are several ways that high school seniors could reduce their stress levels in general and could benefit them in other ways as well. First of all, don’t be afraid to cry because crying is known to help with the relief of stress and will definitely help you feel better even if you may look like a mess.

A much more subtle way could just be to step away from the work and take a day for yourself. Doing this could really allow you to clear your minds and just realize that all the work that you are doing is worth it in the long run. Stress makes you feel like a mess and if you are able to take time out of your day to do a hobby then that hobby could help you take your mind off of the work and onto something else. Exercise is something that brings so much

While heading into the second semester of senior year all seniors should try to relax more and calm down. All of the applications have been submitted and all that is left are the letters. Well you did your best and you must confess that you might be able to stop being such a mess.
