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.
