Student Life refers to the part of life that a student spends studying in schools, colleges and universities. Like all other phases of life, student life has its own peculiar joys and sorrows, its own responsibilities and worries.

The primary duty of a student is to learn and to acquire knowledge. He must do all his work at the right moment and maintain punctuality and discipline. He must remember that if a student becomes successful in his student career and his character is built on a sound basic, he will be able to shine in any sphere of life and serve his society and countries. A student should spend most of his time of this golden period in reading and learning. A good student never waste his time fixed for reading uselessly. But he must not be a book-worm being always engaged in his studies. He should also be careful about his health and spend some time daily in some sports and games. He should try to develop his body and mind at the same time.

Students react to college in a variety of ways. For some students, college is stressful because it is an abrupt change from high school. For others, separation from home is a source of stress. Although some stress is necessary for personal growth to occur, the amount of stress can overwhelm a student and affect the ability to cope.

Ways to manage stress

Stress is your body’s way of preparing you to face something. So, when you notice work piling up, the adrenaline that’s rushing through your system is what will motivate you to head to your laptop and get cracking. We all experience a little stress from time to time but if you know how to manage it, you can stop it becoming overwhelming and ever-present.

  • Release all the pressure

A  lot of stress comes from the internal pressure we put on ourselves. Sure, getting certain grades to get to the unit you want is important but if you heap too much pressure on yourself you can start to panic.

 

  • Be your own cheerleader(cheer up)

f you believe in yourself and your abilities, you’re better able to manage stress. We can all be guilty of focusing too much on the negative at times, beating ourselves up for what we think we did wrong. Instead, keep a notebook where you jot down one thing you did well that day. Getting into the habit of positive self-praise and affirmations can do wonders for your self-esteem, and that will help you to look at stress differently.
