Mostly A's
When stress strikes, you strike back! A little tension is all you need to take action and get what you want. Sure, stress can get the best of26 you, but you manage to deal constructively—a poor grade pushes you to study even harder. Good for you for making the best of stress.


Mostly B's
Congrats27 on keeping stress-free, but realize that it's okay to get a little huffy28 once in a while. Sometimes getting a little worked up29 is all it takes to get what you want. Your sister ruined your shirt? No problem—just get creative—insist on a replacement! Problem solved.


Mostly C's
Sister, you need to chill out30! Just because it's raining and you're stranded31 without an umbrella doesn't mean the sky is falling. (Oh, wait...) Next time, think before you freak32: "Is this really worth my time and energy?" you'll find that many times it isn't. Remember when things take a nose dive33, do your best to keep your chin up!


Mostly D's
Stressing over small things just isn't worth your while. Getting into college and being a good friend are the things you'll let get to you from time to time. Props34 to you for caring about what's really important and being able to compromise35 when it isn't.

答案大多为A: 压力袭来时你予以反击。你只要感到一点点紧张就会采取行动直奔目标。是啊,压力会束缚你,但面对压力,你能有所作为——成绩不好会促使你更加努力学习。能变压力为动力,好样的!

答案大多为B: 祝贺你不为压力所动,不过请记住偶尔生生气也没什么。有时你只须发点小脾气就能心想事成。妹妹弄脏了你的衬衣?没问题——稍稍动动脑子——一定要她赔你件新的!问题不就解决了。

答案大多为C: 小妹,你需要放松!如果天在下雨而你又没带雨伞,不要以为天就要塌了。(哎,等雨停吧......)下次光火之前先想一想:“这真的值得我花时间和精力吗?”你会发现很多时候都不值得。请记住,当形势急转直下的时候,要尽力昂首挺胸!

答案大多为D: 为小事犯愁根本不值得。像上大学、做个好朋友这些事才是你时不时应该关心的问题。给你一点小建议:真正重要的事情才值得操心,小事要能想得开。

Let It All Out! 把压力全部释放出来!

Forget babbling36 brook37 CDs and aromatherapy38. Sometimes you just need to get physical. Here are some ideas and instructions.


1. Take that annoying39 anti-stress squeeze40 ball and toss41 it at someone, preferably a sibling42. Tip: Make sure that the ball is soft and incapable43 of bodily harm. Also, ask your sibling nicely if it's okay. Try: "I really need to do this for my sanity44. Surely you don't mind?"


2. Scream at the top of your lungs while stomping up and down in heavy boots. Tip: Make sure the floors can handle the stomps and that the screaming won't irritate45 anyone too much. If possible, borrow your Dad's boots (the bigger, the heavier; the heavier, the louder!). Go to town.


3. Pull a buttercup46 and punch47, punch, punch! Tip: No, we're not promoting violence48, sillys49. Punch something soft that won't hurt you or it. How about a pillow50? Better yet, your sister's teddy bear51! (Trust us, she'll get over it.)
