We all have stress. But that doesn’t mean we all understand what stress really is or grasp the impact stress can have on our lives. Is stress harmful or helpful? How can stress take a toll on our physical and mental health? Can we use stress to your advantage? Find some answers for yourself and your life with this XQ course.
We also want to encourage you to reach out to your school’s counselors or school’s social workers, your peers, teachers and community leaders to share what you’ve learned about stress and its impacts. This badge is only one of the many ways you can reflect, and begin to think about how you’re experiencing the world. Triggers are real, whether they’re related to racism, COVID, sexuality, body image, remote learning, or bullying. Reach out to those in your circle throughout the course, and share what you’re learning along the way.
