Stress (Definition)

Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger.

Why do I always feel ''high'' 15-30 minutes after ingesting caffeine? This feeling continues for about 1-2 hours after, and then i start to feel bad.

Caffeine: Caffeine is both a drug and a food additive. It's a central nervous system stimulant, and also stimulates your heart and muscles, plus raises your blood pressure. It can make you feel more alert and awake for a couple of hours, but then your energy might crash -- especially if you're very sensitive to it. It's also an addictive substance, the most commonly used in the world. ...Read more

Besides drinking coffee, what can I do to stay awake during school?

Get enough sleep!: Rather than consume caffeine to stay awake, get enough sleep whether it's 6hrs or 8hrs. Find out how much rest you need so that you don't need a nap the next day. Avoid heavy carbs at lunch. Exercise (even if only briefly) to avoid mid-afternoon lull. Sometimes a few jumping jacks, short walk, some pushups/chinups are all you need to get blood flowing. Stretch (discretely) & ask questions in class. ...Read more

But someone drinking a lot should get help to stop! ...Read more
