Back-to-school jitters ... for adults? Yep, that's right. Kids aren't the only ones that experience back-to-school anxieties. Adults also report feeling anxious as summer comes to a close, and kids head back to the classroom. And while school started for most kids a few weeks ago, some adults might still find themselves dealing with anxiety.
For some adults, they might be anxious about the start of school because their kids are anxious. For others, it's got nothing to do with the kids. According to an article in the Huffington Post, some people have a tough time transitioning between the seasons, and that can lead some adults to experience anxiety. And then there's the adults that are simply anxious because they start to remember what it was like when they were kids and they had to head back to school.
In this Forever 39 episode, we chat about why even decades after graduating from high school, we still get anxious over the start of school.
