Academic Stress 101
Understanding Academic Stress
Stress isn’t always a bad thing, it’s actually necessary and healthy, but only at manageable levels. Stress pushes us to stay on track with our studying and classwork and keeps us motivated. It’s natural to feel stress at college or in high school when there’s pressure to succeed. But when stress, worry, and anxiety start to overwhelm us, it makes it harder to focus and get things done.
Managing Academic Stress
School stress is a real thing and managing it looks different for different people. While some stress is good for us, chronic or constant stress can prevent us from being productive and can have lasting effects on our overall health and wellbeing. The most effective ways to diffuse stress are activities that reduce stress hormones and promote mental relaxation.
