High schools and universities across the country are adapting to the needs of their stressed students. Competitiveness, heavy workloads, and excessive involvement in activities are among the factors stressing out our kids. From offering massage therapy to teenagers weary from the college application process to arranging yoga classes to curb exam stress, school administrators are recognizing and trying to ease the heightened stress of today's students. The American Academy of Pediatrics recently released a report emphasizing that free time and playtimes are essential to the cognitive, social, and emotional development of children, and that it is crucial for students, parents, and schools to understand the role of stress in young people's lives.
