9 Ways to deal with stress for a student

So, over the last few weeks it seems that everything that can go wrong has once again gone wrong.  Do others often feel this way in their lives?  I have found that there are many people out there that often seem to be overwhelmed by the stress in their lives and often don’t know how to cope with that type of anxiety.   I have gone through some major events over the last few weeks and often found myself asking the same question.  It seemed that no matter what I did I seemed to find a way to make my solution more difficult than it was, before I began to think.  Then the next thing that usually happens is that you speak because you forgot to think about what it was you were going to say.  Hence, you end up in situations that can often be avoided and, instead, could have originally implemented a solution without too much exertion of physical/intellectual effort.

The article that I found was by a blogger who either has been in school or knows very intimately about the subject.  It starts off by discussing the many levels of demands on students and how they quickly become overwhelmed by assignments and test.  The article helps give students nine different ways of coping with stress and how these simple actions can truly help reduce the level of stress on a student during their college career.

Please let me know if you found this article useful and if there is anything else you would like to add.  Thank you and hope to hear from you in the future.

Stress from a test and with a pointer or two….

As I go through the years it never seems to fail me that I ALWAYS have a huge amount of stress leading up to an exam.  I have heard many things during my lifetime about how to remain calm during the moments before a test, but it never works.  Especially like the last two hours before the exam, actually takes place.  I get sweaty hands, grind my teeth and simply can’t seem to sit still.  In fact, the funny thing about it is that if I study in public, than I need to find a hiding place because I often look a guy who has been pumped full of some form of drug or  “amphetamine” .

The feeling of stress is a universal, at least I think it should be, attribute amongst a majority of students while attending college.  There can be many different forms of relief that can assist with the lessening of stress such as yoga, walking or simply working out.  Anything that helps the person forget about their current issues and problematic situations can help reduce the sensation of stress amongst the individual.

Some of the most helpful things that I do to relieve stress is very slowly taking deep breaths and then letting then out through your nostrils.  Also, I like to lie down and stretch my toes and slowly begin to stretch the rest of my body; until all of my extremities are pointed outwards and extended.  This seems to really help relieve the tension within the muscles.  Although, if you want to avoid all of that and get straight to the point; than you can go  find the attraction of another and engage in some good ol’ fashion wrestling, only after engaging in a game of “optional clothing poker”.

Stress…Learning to Manage

Stress is the key ingredient to everyone’s chaos in their lives.  It can cause people to lose their minds and sometimes even cause major health complications. However, stress does not need to take over your lives and control everything that you do on a daily basis.  There are many different techniques that can be used to help control the anxiety that comes from stress as well.   Here is an example of what I did this weekend to help with my stress overload.

So when I started this weekend I had all of these great plans and things I was going to accomplish.  These tasks were set up in my daily calendar and prioritized by their importance.  This helps allow me the opportunity to see what is important and what it is that can be put off for another day.  Then I also take my task and put an approximate amount of time it will take to complete each one of them.  If I begin to fall behind by having the amount of time written next to it allows me a better overview for the next few days.  These are only a few of my strategies on what helps me get through the rough spots and how I try to manage my stress levels.

I recently found an article that had a few very good recommendations that described how to manage stress at a business.  The title was “Stress-Busting for Small Business Owners” and felt it offered many good ideas.  People often handle their stress in many different manners and this is only one of those avenues.

If you have any ideas or would like to comment please feel free to leave a response.  Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and I hope to receive your feedback as well!

Stress and some tips

Stress can be described in a multitude of different ways and have a number of different effects on a person.  Those effects can range from the obvious physical to the unobvious of emotional damage.  The way people handle these stresses also varies greatly and be handled in different ways that are dependent on each person individually.

The harsh realization is that people are going to have to endure stress whether they like or not.  The monthly rent, the monthly power bill and the constant nagging of the neighbor is never going to stop and we as each citizens are going to have to learn to deal with it regardless.

I have found another good article that discusses some of the simple things a person can try and relieve some of their daily stressors.  This can range from something as simple as learning to think more positively, too, trying to breathe and smile a little more.

It is said that something as small as smiling can help a person change their mindset and help change their overall outlook at that particular moment in time.  Also, another interesting point they bring up is that exercise is good to help relieve stress, but don’t push it too far.  Try to extend the muscles and slowly bring the tension levels down from within the internal body.
