Tout le monde vit du stress. C’est la réaction physique ou émotionnelle de ton corps à un élément qui dérange ton équilibre personnel. Pour ton corps, le stress signifie un changement. Tout ce qui te dérange peut entraîner un stress qui, à son tour, crée des tensions dans ton corps. Le fait d’imaginer un changement ou un événement non désiré est également stressant, c’est ce qu’on appelle l’inquiétude. </p>

This is called worry.</p><p>Stress is what you feel when you react to pressure. This pressure can come either from the outside world (school, work, after-school activities, friends, family) or from inside yourself (wanting to do well in school, wanting to fit in). These events or demands are known as stressors. </p> <strong><p>Stress is what you feel inside. Stressors are outside events or demands.</p></strong> <p>In small doses, stress can be a good thing. It can give you the push you need. It can motivate you to do your best. It can help you stay focused and alert. Stress helps you to perform well during an important concert performance. Stress is what drives you to study for your midterm when you would rather be watching TV or hanging out with your friends. This is called good stress. </p><p>When the going gets too tough and life’s demands exceed your ability to cope, stress can affect both your physical and emotional well-being. This is known as bad stress. The focus of this session will be on ways to manage bad stress.</p><h2>Stress often lies under the radar</h2><p>Many teenagers may say that they aren’t under much stress. They may not think that stress triggers their JIA flares or makes their symptoms worse. You may feel the same way. However, we know that many people are just not aware of the stress that their bodies experience. This is normal and may require a little special attention to figure out how your body reacts to stress.</p>
