Now that school is back in session, all the academic responsibilities, sports, hobbies, and other commitments come along with it. Which can make for a very stressed out teenager. ๐Ÿ˜…
So! Here are some ways to help them cope:โฃ
โฃ
1๏ธโƒฃ ๐’๐‹๐„๐„๐! This is essential to their growth and development. Their changing bodies and evolving minds need at least 8-10 hours. ๐Ÿ’ค โฃ

We need to show our children what makes them special and encourage them in the areas that they can excel at. This can look vastly different from teen to teen. ๐Ÿ’ชโฃ

Help your child find a sport, hobby, activity, etc. that they truly love. This gives teens a fun outlet for some โ€œMe Time!โ€ as well as boosts their confidence! ๐ŸŽค๐ŸŽฎ ๐Ÿ“š โฃ

Whether itโ€™s a short walk around the block, or a long bike ride, the exercise releases chemicals in the brain that can brighten their mood. ๐Ÿˆโฃ
5๏ธโƒฃ ๐“๐š๐ฅ๐ค๐ข๐ง๐  ๐ฐ๐ข๐ญ๐ก ๐ญ๐ก๐ž๐ฆ. This can seem challenging at times, but everything feels better once talked through. Learning how to communicate and manage stress is such a great life skill to achieve at a young age. Be a trusted parent or encourage them to find someone who they feel comfortable confiding in that will have their best interest at heart. It is vital that teens have someone more than just their peers to seek advice from!
