    Answer 1/5

    Ugh! Big test tomorrow. What should you do?

    • The Correct Answer:

    A good night’s sleep can be more important than extra studying.

    During the day, your brain is super busy taking in sights and sounds. At night when you’re sleeping, it takes a break. That’s when it sorts through everything. Sleep helps you remember things and gives you energy to think.

    So good sleep tonight will help you do your best tomorrow!

    • The Correct Answer:

    Even though stress doesn’t cause gray hair, it is hard on your body. People who are stressed get sick more easily.

    It can also make it hard to sleep at night. And when you’re tired, your brain feels confused. It can make you think you’re hungry, when you’re really just tired.

    So, relax and get more sleep. Then you’ll have energy to choose things that make you feel good, like shooting some hoops or dancing.

    Yoga is a great exercise that can help you relax and get more energy. How? It teaches you how to take deep breaths. All that air gets more oxygen to your brain and muscles. That’s where the energy comes from!

    More energy means you can think clearly. It can help you choose to ride your bike after school instead of playing video games.

    Ask your parent about taking a yoga class. Or look up yoga poses in a book or online.

    Answer 4/5

    What can you do the next time you feel really stressed out?

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    No matter how stressed you are, food can’t make you feel better. Eating to calm down keeps you from dealing with feelings in a healthy way.

    Instead, try this easy breathing exercise:

    1. Breathe in through your nose while you count to 5 in your head.
    2. Breathe out through your mouth while you count to 5 in your head.
    3. Do this three times.

    Feel better?

    Answer 5/5

    Fun stuff can cause stress. 

    • You answered:
    • The Correct Answer:

    Sure, stuff like homework and tests can be stressful. But fun stuff like school clubs, music lessons, and teams can, too -- especially when you’re too busy.

    If you feel like you’re doing too much, it’s probably time to stop some activities. Talk to a parent. If you can’t give anything up, make sure you take some time to relax every day. That way, you’ll be less stressed! Stress steals your energy. Relaxing helps you feel ready to think and move.
