Is something on your mind? Has it been weighing you down? The good news is that you can try to change that. Find out how you can lift your spirits with positive thinking and get back to your cheery self.


You Have a Lot on Your Mind

No one said being a teenager is easy. You have a lot going on. You have school, friends and family events — all the while your body is changing and your emotions may be getting the best of you. You might have a lot going on, but that’s no reason to get stressed out or down on yourself. It’s important to remember you don’t have to have it all figured out. Don’t let yourself dwell on the parts of your life that aren’t perfect. You should be happy and proud of your accomplishments thus far.


Start with Positive Thinking

So what do you do if you feel like you are stressed out? Start with positive thinking.


  • Think of all the good things in your life, and make a mental note of how grateful you are for those things. It can include people, accomplishments and things that make you happy.


  • Remind yourself of all the possibilities you have in front of you. Didn’t make a sports team? Think about what other sports you could try out for or maybe consider joining a new club.


  • Talk to your parents. Who better to make you feel better than your parents who have always been there for you? Tell your parents how you are feeling and seek their advice. Odds are, they’ve been through similar situations, too!


  • Go for a walk, and clear your mind.


  • Listen to an upbeat song and let the music move you. Dance party anyone?!


  • Write down all the things that are stressing you out in a journal and reread it. Sometimes writing it down gets it off your chest and can make you realize it’s not that big of a problem.


  • Unplug. Put down the cell phone and back away from the computer to completely decompress. For some people, this might mean a quick nap — for others, it’s reading a good book. Clear your mind by becoming completely wrapped up in relaxing.



Feel better already? We thought so! No one can promise you will never feel sad, anxious or overwhelmed, but you are in control of feeling positive. Keep these resources at your fingertips, and make up your mind to practice positive thinking. We’re happy for you!
