Interested in Improving Your Academic Performance? I’ve Got Your Back.
TL;DR being a student is hard, so I’m going to share my school-related tips and tricks with you every Sunday
As a student, school can be difficult, stressful, and exhausting. In fact, according to a 2014 evaluation from the American Psychological Association, teenage stress averages at a 5.8 out of 10 during the school year, compared to 5.1 for adults, with a majority of teenagers citing time management as a significant stressor. Furthermore, NYU’s College of Nursing has discovered that 26% of students at two highly selective high schools display clinically significant levels of depression. Thus, it seems to me that a key issue exists within the education system:
Students are overwhelmed.
It’s not that they’re not capable of handling everything on their plates, or that they’re not smart enough to master the material. But, from balancing extracurricular activities with academics to finding time to socialize with friends and family, teenagers are overwhelmed by the sheer volume of events that must be completed each and every day. As each semester drags on, motivation starts to wane, bad habits begin to form, and sleep goes down the drain.
If these struggles sound familiar, then I’m here to help you out. School is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and I want to help you make the most of it. So, keep an eye out for my first post, coming your way this Sunday!
