The beginning of the school year can be a very exciting time for students. Connecting with old friends, learning new things and making a fresh start are things students look forward to. However, for students of all ages and in all grade levels, it can also be a very stressful time. Transitioning from one grade to another, or even one school to another, can be extremely challenging, as can managing school work, social pressures, and tests and exams.
Academic Wellness helps students deal with school stress and anxiety. Techniques such as writing therapy and breathing exercises for relaxation, as well as time management and organizational skills can ease academic stress and anxiety. When students are taught these techniques and skills and work toward achieving academic wellness, they become more successful in school.
