Helping students deal with stress

NEW HAVEN Conn. (WTNH) — Now that students are settling into their school routines, many may be struggling with stress caused by juggling a busy schedule of homework and activities.

Lauralton Hall in Milford has developed a unique program for all students which assists in balancing their activities. Dr. Toni Iadarola, the president of Lauralton Hall in Milford stopped by our station to talk about the program.

Some ways that can help reduce stress:

  1. It may be as simple as more sleep, teenagers need at least 9 hours of sleep – most teenagers get less than that. Adequate sleep alone would make a big difference in teens’ stress levels.
  2. Exercise helps cope.
  3. It’s important that teenagers get a healthy diet.
  4. Teens need time to relax and just have fun

For more information on the program just watch the video above.
