When a person fears or worries excessively, they have anxiety. This can get worse over time. Anxiety effected many peoples’ lives, including students at Bak.

“There are all sorts of causes for anxiety and it varies depending on the student,” Summer Bendfelt, guidance counselor, said.

According to childmind.org, there are many forms of anxiety, but the most common symptom among all, is they “tend to lock up the brain” which could affect a student’s school life.

“If I didn’t have anxiety, I probably would do more after school activities, but I don’t because I worry about homework,” Jenna Lee, seventh grade communications major, said.

Bendfelt said, “Tests, grades, disorganization, homework, and time management,” could be common causes. It may also vary on the student and what they are going through.

“Students can also have anxiety related to non-school related circumstances, like changes at home or relationships with their friends,” Bendfelt said.

Students could cope with anxiety or learn to handle it. Some ways include physical related activities like meditation and hobbies like dancing.

“Music helps a lot with my coping,” Lee said, “blasting music sort of helps me block out the world and helps me through the worst of it.
