There is no disagreement that school is stressful, no matter what grade you're in--because no matter what, piles of work always becomes greater the older you get and you'll always be overwhelmed by it.
Stress is a natural instinct of our body to handle with demand or threat. The longer you work with stress, the worse your condition will become; mentally and physically, you will deteriorate.
According to WebMD, here are the emotional symptoms you will encounter if you're stressed for a prolonged amount of time.

In reality, stress is natural and nothing can really prevent it from happening. What matters is how you handle it.
To deal with that b*itch, here's some ways that may help you!
There are several meditation guides on YouTube. I would recommend an app called HeadSpace, if you're more into that, which helps guide you as a beginner to mediation and let your mind rest.
Mediation is not only breathing, but it helps your mind stay at one spot and avoid it from going everywhere for a few minutes. It's totally relaxing and for a few minutes, you feel like you can breathe.
Even if you think you don't have time to play an instrument, sing or to listen to music, even for just a few minutes it can help your brain de-stress and not think about the mountain of work that you would have to do.
If you're looking for a few minute break that's fun and relaxing, music is a way to go! Besides, who doesn't love singing??
3. Walk around
After having your butt sitting on a chair for hours, it's better to move around and bring that racing mind into action. Walk around the house, or take a short jog around the block to make your heart pumping as your brain is! This is best to those who are physically active as well and wanting to squeeze their work-out schedule in their school work.
4. Talk to a specialist
If in the end, you are having troubles controlling your stress by yourself or by talking to a loved one, it is wise to contact a doctor who will recommend you to the right specialist to whom you may talk to about worries and such.
But my main advice: always take breaks!
Even for a three minutes or four, just give yourself some spare time to relax that fidgeting, busy brain!
