Focus 2 Achieve

Innovate Create Educate

I blog on Brain-Based Learning, Metacognition, and Social-Emotional Learning. I am the author of "Crush School: Every Student's Guide To Killing It In The Classroom" which is a book that helps students understand how their brain processes information and learns. In the book, I explain why students can learn anything and give strategies on how to learn effectively.

Stress Impairs. Stress Damages. Stress Kills.

But are they real?

Remember these 3 choices when facing stress:

  1. Change It. Exert influence wherever and however you can.
  2. Leave It. While walking away may be painful, sometimes it's best to let it go.
  3. Accept It. Often, the situation is out of your control, so choose not to complain or make demands. Just roll with it.
