What is stress? - by Augustine

What is stress?

Stress is a type of feeling you have, when you are tired, working too much or having responsibilities. Stress sometimes make you don’t feel like doing work, you just feel like relaxing.

Hormones are chemicals in our body that tells us how to react in a situation, like stress. When stress is inside you hormones tells you to react by moaning or being lazy if you don’t want to do work.

Stress is also caused by being scared or elated - over excited! Stress is also caused by breathing heavily, your heart rate is rising, blood sugar level increases, blood pressure increases and more.

Hormones don’t just tell us how to act in a stress situation, They tell us what to do when we are sick as well. Hormones also tells the immune system what to do in the body such as battling with illness like flu.

Steamship - by Augustine

Steamship Station

As I sit on my suit case, I feel sick. I can feel people squashing me. People are wearing blankets while sleeping on the hard dirty floor. I feel like a have abandoned my country.  

I can hear people's moan, and babies cry. It is annoying for my ears. I can taste nothing by my tummy feels like it needs food. I wish there is food in my hands.

In the station I feel the cold. I use my jumper to cover myself. It has really helped. I feel people kicking me while they are lying down. It is so uncomfortable. I just can't wait to arrive in America.
