How would you rate your stress today? How would you rate your stress back in your teen years? A new survey by the American Psychological Association finds on a 10-point scale, American teens rate their stress above the level adults do – 5.8 compared to 5.1. Further, most of the teens expressed their level of stress wasn’t healthy, but either didn’t know what to do to manage their stress or just weren’t doing it. These figures are alarming to both parents and health care providers, as unaddressed and unmanaged stress can have negative health implications in both the short-term and long-term... Read More »

This new research may change the way at-risk patients and caregivers approach changes in weather.
