Section B [25 marks] Question 21- 25 are based on the following passage. 1 2 3 Feeling like there are too many pressures and demands on you? You're not alone. Everyone experiences stress at times adults, teens, and even kids. What is stress? Stress is a feeling that's created when we react to particular events. It's the body's way of rising to a challenge and preparing to meet a tough situation with focus, strength, stamina, and heightened1 alertness. 5

There is good stress and bad stress. Just enough stress can be a good thing, but too much stress isnt good for anyone. For example, feeling a little stress about a test thats coming up can motivate you to study hard. But stressing out too much over the test can make it hard to concentrate on the material you need to learn. Pressures that are too intense or last too long, or troubles that are shouldered2 alone, can cause people to feel stress. 1 There are a few things that can overwhelm the bodys ability to cope if they continue for 0 a long time. Stress among adults is often linked to relationship stress, caused by familiar conflicts, unrequited3 love or death of a loved one. Stress among students is often attributed to ongoing problems with schoolwork or being bullied or exposed to violence. Stress can also occur in people who find that they are always on the go with crammed4 schedules and not 1 having enough time to relax. 5 Everyone experiences stress a little differently. But there are things you can do to minimize the stress and manage the stress thats unavoidable. Start by taking a stand against overscheduling. If you're feeling stretched, consider cutting out an activity or two, opting5 for just the ones that are most important to you. Studies have shown that the main cause of stress among teenagers is the parental pressure to excel in examinations. If you find that you are unable to speak to your parents about the pressure they 20 are putting on you, speak to counselor or someone who can mediate. Learn to relax. The body's natural antidote6 to stress is called the relaxation response. It's your body's opposite of stress, and it creates a sense of well-being and calm. And ensure you stay relaxed by incorporating7 time into your schedule for activities that are calming and pleasurable: reading a good book or making time for a hobby, spending time with your pet, or 25 just taking a relaxing bath. Get a good night's sleep. Getting enough sleep helps keep your body and mind in top shape, making you better equipped to deal with any negative stressors. Many teens prefer staying up a little later at night and sleeping a little later in the morning. But if you stay up late 3 and still need to get up early for school, you may not get all the hours of sleep you need. 0 Treat your body well. Experts agree that getting regular exercise helps people manage stress. And eat well to help your body get the right fuel to function at its best. Some people may turn to substance abuse as a way to ease tension. Although alcohol or drugs may seem to lift the stress temporarily, relying on them to cope with stress actually promotes8 more stress because it wears down the body's ability to bounce back. 3 Watch what you're thinking. Your outlook, attitude, and thoughts influence the way you 5 see things. Is your cup half full or half empty? A healthy dose of optimism9 can help you make the best of stressful circumstances. Be realistic. Don't try to be perfect no one is. And expecting others to be perfect can add to your stress level, too. If you need help on something, like schoolwork, ask for it.
