Help Students Deal With Stress

Stress Impairs. Stress Damages. Stress Kills.

Stress stinks really bad.

Fear, anxiety, shame, powerlessness, hopelessness. These are all feelings that can lead to stress.

But are they real? 

And, can we control them?

Let's find out.



Remember these 3 choices when facing stress:

  1. Change It. Exert influence wherever and however you can.
  2. Leave It. While walking away may be painful, sometimes it's best to let it go.
  3. Accept It. Often, the situation is out of your control, so choose not to complain or make demands. Just roll with it.

I hope you enjoyed this edition of Brainhacking. My recent book "Crush School" contains many more brain based tools to help students learn and is on sale right now on Amazon. I also send a free newsletter with tips, articles, and brain based learning infographics for educators, so Sign Up if you'd like to start receiving it.

Thanks for reading. And remember...

You have the power to change the world. Use it often.

I founded Focus 2 Achieve to provide innovative classroom tools that empower teachers and help students achieve more success. In my first life, I am a husband, a father, and a teacher. In my second life, I spend time discovering what "really works" aka "best practices" in education, problem-solving, and creating products for teachers and students. I recently wrote a book titled "Crush School: Every Student's Guide To Killing It In The Classroom." It is a book designed for Students that uses brain research and brain based learning strategies to help student become better learners. The book can be used by Teachers to help students learn more effectively, and Parents to help their children become more aware of how they learn. 


I have a BS in Earth and Environmental Sciences and an MA in Teaching. I teach high school Chemistry and Principles of Engineering and my professional interests focus on discovering and learning how the human mind learns and acquires lasting knowledge and skills, so that I can help my (and other) students learn more effectively and achieve greater academic success.


I am also a fan of the Jedi order (and use DA FORCE frequently), ninjas (both masked and unmasked), and the superhero in all of us. Oh, and I am on a Quest to Change the World, because I can. I believe we all can.
