What Happens to our Brain When we are Stressed

When your brain senses danger, it sends never signals down to your spinal to the adrenal glands; which tells them to release the hormone adrenaline. When adrenaline is released, it increases the sugar levels in your blood, increases your heart rate, as well as your blood pressure.

Just a little bonus!:P

Can we Talk?

Who do you talk to when you need to talk?

Results from our research, unfortunately most teens either do not have anyone to talk to or they will just rather not talk to anyone. Seems we rather keep our problems to ourselves, maybe we feel they're not able understand our problems. Big parts of the teen like me are afraid to show our problems and don't want to stress others. We think others have their own problems and not want to add more to them.

To us, best friends are the closest to us and most likely the one that is able to understand us. Someone we really trust. They know enough about us to be able to give us a solution.

For sure our family will always be on our side, but there is some exceptions where family is the the main enemy to the teen and the stress causing factor. Not everyone has this problem and find help in their mom or older siblings perhaps of their prior experience in life.

In conclusion, friends and family are a big part of our problems to stress for which we will end up alone, keeping everything to our selves.

Welcome to Let the Teens Speak!

This blog is meant to gather information on what makes teenagers stress on either school related or personal life. All the information that eventually will be posted on this blog will come from written surveys made to both gender, junior high and high school teenagers.We will also include an extra video made to kindergarten kids asking them simple questions about their school experience. Later, we will introduce ways we can help to release stress.
