Explain that the first step to managing stress is recognizing the symptoms. Brainstorm with students a list of signs and symptoms that students may experience when they are in a stressful situation (sweating, crying, headaches, etc.). Explain that stress can be good or bad, but either way, stress still elicits the same signs and symptoms. Explain that stress can also be categorized as manageable and preventable. Ask for some examples of stressors that can be managed (homework, chores, etc.). Ask students to brainstorm ways to prevent these causes of stress (do homework on time, organize, plan, don't procrastinate, etc.).
