However, you don’t have to worry anymore because the answers to your problem are right here! If you want to know how to get rid of stress, here are some suggestions for you to remember and try.

One of main reasons you might be stressed is lack of sleep. If your a type of person who is stays up until 12 a.m. or 2a.m., then you might have stress from a lack of sleep. Teens need at least 8 to 10 hours of sleep. Study shows that only 15% of teens get 8 ½ hours of sleep. This is because teens tend to have irregular sleeping schedules. In addition to, this also makes them sleep in late during the weekends which hurts that quality time of sleep. This can affect a teen’s attitude. According to a sleep study, a lack of sleep could “lead to aggressive or inappropriate behavior such as yelling at your friends or being impatient with your teachers.” Technically, it’s the same way kids act when they don’t get enough sleep. To avoid this problem, try to avoid T.V., computer, iPhones, or any electronic you might have, in the hour before you go to bed. Think of this advice the same way  as when your parents tell you not to stay up late but you do it anyway.

Do you turn in completed homework on time? Do you have late work? If you do have late work, then that might be a reason why your also stressed. Late  homework piles up and then you have even more homework and this causes stress. Not doing your work, could also cause your parents  to worry and keep a closer eye on their teen. To avoid this situation, create or get yourself a planner, or get yourself organized using a tech tool on your phone or iPad. Getting a planner can help you stay on task and it can  help you get everything done. Organization is also important to make sure you know where everything is.
