Being a student is extremely hard. Not only do they have to attend all classes and submit difficult homework assignments and endless papers on time, but also they need to work, volunteer, and manage to have some personal life. As a result of such schedule, a lot of college students are stressed out and exhausted, which may cause even more serious problems such as insomnia, anxiety and depression, asthma, and even obesity. This is why it is very important to know how to identify stress and what to do to reduce stress levels or even eliminate it to improve mental health.
Managing Stress as a College Student Imagine you are back at your first day of college. You are trying to forget the fact that you have left your family, friends, and old life behind and beginning to accept that you are staring a new one. You walk into your first classroom and instantly forget all the good and exciting aspects and start to realize exactly how different this whole experience is going to be. After taking a look at the syllabus you begin to get anxious and overwhelmed.
