Teens are now juuling to relieve their stress.
Well, what is juuling? Juuling, or vaping, is when someone uses a vape pen and inhales the heated vape juice. It was originally created for people trying to quit smoking, however, it has recently become a trend within teens who’ve never smoked before.
Juuling affects the developing brains of teens differently than it would with the brains of adults. When teens juul on a day to day basis, it is proven that their performances on memory-related tasks are worse than the average teen that does not juul. Additionall
y, the prefrontal cortex, the part of your brain that makes decisions and controls your emotions, is at greater risk if you juuling is part of your daily routine.
Teens are under a lot of pressure and stress, and lately, have been turning to this new, “trendy”, mechanism. However, there are lots of other ways to reduce stress that are good for your brain and body such as getting more sleep, managing your time, and meditation. Overall, these are a few ways for vaping teens to better relieve their stress.
