Do you ever feel like your plate is too full, between school, work, sports and other activities?
Add the occasional family stress to that list and being a teen can be downright overwhelming.
Some teens have bigger responsibilities than others, like taking care of other kids when parents or care providers are at work. Others may be parents themselves or be dealing with a pregnancy or other stressful issue. The list can often go on and on.
A good way to find balance in your life is to decide what is really important to you. Is finishing school a big goal? Or maybe staying clean or cutting down on alcohol or drug use is an important goal.
No matter what is important to you, making a plan to keep your goals at the top of your list can be helpful.
