How School Stress is Secretly Ruining Your Health

Sep 19, 2023 | Mental Wellness

Stress is all around us, especially in today’s society. So many of us go through the day being fueled by stress, unable to think clearly or enjoy the small moments. While there are many things that can cause stress in kids and teens, school is one of the biggest factors that needs to be considered.

School Stress

Many of us have a variety of stress symptoms we are dealing with, and we don’t know what causes them. There’s one that must be considered along with all the others: school stress – past and present.

School is known for being stressful and many students don’t have the coping skills or tools needed to reduce their tension. Stress has the potential to wreak havoc on our bodies, significantly impacting our overall health and wellness – not only in the moment, but in the future as well.

Let’s explore some ways that stress could be ruining our health and some remarkable new techniques that are massively changing this risk today..


Many students suffer from chronic headaches and haven’t been able to find relief. Constant worry and anxiety may be something to consider.

Tension-type headaches are the most common and they can be debilitating. Interestingly, many of the people that suffer from headaches are children and young adults.

Stomach Issues

Many people feel nauseous before taking a test. If you do, then you may be experiencing one of the many effects of school stress. Your stomach can be severely affected, leading to bloating, nausea, and even vomiting.

For some, stress leads to a decreased appetite. This can in turn impact your mood and health, furthering stomach issues that build into chronic illnesses.

Tip:Consider bringing a snack you can eat before nerves kick in. This can be a great way to regulate your blood sugar and make sure that you’re starting off on the right foot.


Getting enough sleep is an essential component when it comes to protecting your overall wellness. Unfortunately, sleep is one of the most common things that’s affected by stress. When you’re stressed, your body is less likely to get the quality of sleep it needs, which can lead to mood changes the following day.

If a student stays up all night studying or worrying about a test, then their overall health can be impacted, as well as their sleep cycle and their test taking abilities. It’s essential that students develop the necessary coping strategies to diffuse stress (like meditation… But more on that later)

New Technology for today

One thing that you can do to relieve the symptoms of stress from your mind and body is to practice a simple and yet effective evidence- based technology developed from preeminent holistic traditions and modern scientists.

SOS Method was developed by Marlise Karlin, a Mental Health and Trauma Expert who spent years working alongside experts globally and more than 2 decades gathering data on the transformative changes in people’s behavior..

The results were remarkable and helped students and people of all ages to develop greater peace of mind, focus, and empowered actions. Just by taking a few minutes to listen to one of the guided meditations at lunch or on a break, there are so many ways you can bring this new awareness into your day.

When it comes to transforming stress, Marlise Karlin has pioneered tools that work in only minutes. She’s dedicated her life to freeing others from their genetic pain and developing innovative practices for managing stress.

SOS Meditations are a great way to reduce stress, get inspired, and conquer the school day. Plus they are unlike any meditation you’ve ever tried before.

The Special Formula of specific words, tones, music, and language patterns infused with ‘subtle energy’ frequencies activates a dormant potential. It works like a tuning fork to bring your frequency into a higher vibration.

School stress shouldn’t be running your life – in just a few minutes each day, these meditations can transform the way you view the world, how your body reacts to stress, and the way you confront challenges.

Pro Tip: Consider doing your meditation first thing in the morning before school. This can be a great way to start the day and help you reset from any stress still hanging on from the day before.

School is here again and that means it’s the perfect opportunity to practice stress reduction. While there are lots of stress reduction methods, many of them take lots of time. Things like going for a long walk or making your favorite meal can be extremely helpful, but they’re not practical for school day stress.

You and your kids can enjoy these practices together as well as solo. By doing just a few simple things you can have this school year be one you both enjoy.
