Highs and lows

Posted on Updated on

It’s exam time and whilst you might be dropping into the Wodehouse Library to revise we thought we would take this opportunity to mention a few new books dealing with teenage stress to help you through.

First up we have 3 books by Nicola Morgan:

  • Blame my brain: the amazing teenage brain revealed (someone told us that this had made their son understand more about sleep patterns)
  • Know your brain: feed it, test it, stretch it
  • The teenage guide to stress.

Read them through if you want/need to but probably right now you might find simply dipping into these books helpful. There’s a short chapter on exams and schoolwork in The teenage guide to stress that highlights the kinds of worries students feel at this time of year and Nicola Morgan makes a number of suggestions for managing the stress these worries cause.

We’ll mention just 2 more books here:

  • Mind your head: all about our mental health by Juno Dawson and Dr Olivia Hewitt
  • Fighting invisible tigers: stress management for teens by Earl Hipp.

Juno Dawson writes with a real light touch about exams and school and Dr Olivia weighs in with an expert view. There’s a table on p.71 that highlights what stress might look like.

Finally, Earl Hipp’s book busts some myths about stress and there’s a nice section about procrastination which prompted the actual writing and publication of this blog post (which has been in a planning phase for longer than we like to remember).

You can find all of these books and plenty more in the Library Catalogue and these keywords will be helpful: Reading Well, stress.
