High school’s hard - no one knows this better than high school teachers.
Brett Phillips decided to go that extra mile for his psychology students, sharing a list of ‘101 ways to cope with stress’ with his class.
One pupil at the school in Oxnard, California, was so touched by the gesture that she shared the list on Twitter, where it’s since gone viral.

The post has clearly touched a nerve on social media, as it’s already been liked 26,000 times and received 21,000 retweets.

Brett’s list has become a thing of legend at the school, where it’s been given out 10 years in a row.
Fans of Alina’s post thanked her for sharing the joy. We’re pretty grateful, too.
Remember: ‘Relax, take each day at a time… you have the rest of your life to live.’ Wise words indeed.
