Do you think Hobbies help manage stress and anxiety?

According to Art 4 Health foundation, conceptual art definitely does. There are a lot of other ways to manage stress during the high school years. To check out a discussion presented by this foundation with students going into Ivies - Princeton and Harvard, register - HTTP://tinyurl.com/totebags21

In the future, I would post discussion topics under Discussion vs. Admissions Advice where the norm is to ask a question about college admissions preparation or the admissions process. This is more of a share if that makes sense.

I think hobbies CAN help manage stress and anxiety if implemented correctly. Using hobbies as a break from stressful responsibilities helps, but using hobbies as a way to escape or procrastinate stressful responsibilities just makes you feel guilty for not doing whatever it is you are supposed to be doing.

Absolutely! Hobbies allow you to take a break from other responsibilities and do something fun and productive. Also they can give you space to think and process without sitting still and doing absolutely nothing.

Yes, I think that hobbies can help mange stress because it helps you get your mind off the thing that are making you stress about and take a break from the world or school. I get stressed out a lot and a hobby that I do is read a book I like and it helps me get my mind off things that are stressful. I also listen to music. Just find something that will take your mind off things and take a break from it if you start feeling stressed out because if you are stressed it is not your best work now is it.
