What is stress?

Stress is a big factor in everyone’s life, even my own just the amount of it differs from person to person. This topic is a big impact on me this quarter; working, school and my volunteer work that I have committed to. Going to school with 19 credit hours, working 25 hours a week and helping coach a eighth grade softball team has kept my stress levels high. It seems like I have no time for anything, and that I am constantly running from one place to another. When ever someone calls me to go out, I have to make time and actually schedule them in with my schedule. Who does that at eighteen?
To deal with my stress I tend to listen to music, preferably music like AC/DC older rock songs. Sometimes when I do not want to deal with anyone I go to my room and just go to sleep. People deal with stress in numerous ways, from eating to working out.
I need to not stretch myself to thin with so many events. School is my top priority, I should cut back my job hours and limit my time coaching and focus all my extra time to school. I need to work on things ahead of the time and not wait until the last minute when I do not really have the time to spend my complete concentration on my school work.
Do you have a lot of stress in your life? What do you do to release stress? These are many questions that people ask to help keep their stress levels down.
