Stressed in school? Here’s how some students deal with it

“I really like being in school because it makes me feel organized. I’m passing all my classes so I’m not very stressed right now. When I do get stressed about school, it’s mostly because I have a lot of packets to do for credit recovery, and sometimes it just gets overwhelming. I enjoy meeting new people, learning new things, and socializing with friends. When I get stressed, I do like to listen to music, or just take a deep breath.”
