Middle school is turning me into a stress mess!

I started junior high this year, and I find it very overwhelming. I don’t have time for all the things I love—boys, friends, shopping, etc. What can I do to get my life back and relax?


Dear Stress Mess,

You’re not alone, and I’m sorry you’re feeling stressed. Lots of hardworking people get overwhelmed because there isn’t enough time to do everything every day. But in the big scheme of things, there is enough time to do what matters. It’s just that you may have to study during the week, and flirt, chat and shop on weekends.


This doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some daily rest and relaxation. You can! Give yourself daily kickback time—whether that means taking a bath, e-mailing friends, reading a novel, doing yoga, listening to music, yakking on the phone or walking your dog.
