How to deal with stress at university

Almost every single university student becomes stressed at some point, whether it is having upcoming assignment deadlines, studying for exams, or being behind on work that you have not yet caught up on. Here are some tips to help you cope with the workload and the stress that builds up during your time at university.

Start revision ahead of time.

Make additional notes after lectures and seminars so when you revisit them closer to the exam period it will be a lot easier to recall the information. If your university provides past papers, practice doing them and send it to your lecturer to mark. Make spider diagrams, cue cards and colour code your notes as this helps trigger your memory.

Don’t leave assignments till the last minute.

When your lecturer sets you an assignment, prepare it in plenty of time prior to the deadline. Plan your assignment and list out the important points you are going to discuss. By starting your assignment way before the deadline you would not have to rush to do it all in one night. Instead, you can write small sections of your assignment each day to ensure that it is of high quality and not simply a rushed piece of work. Check over it again and again and read it aloud to yourself before handing it in.

Take regular breaks when revising.

Even though you may want to input as much information as you can into your brain, your brain can only remember so much at once. Take small breaks in between revision, watch your favourite TV show (don’t get too distracted and watch for hours!) and eat foods that will boost your brainpower such as blueberries, walnuts, dark chocolate, etc. 

Exercise.

Go for short walks, do some light aerobics at home if you do not wish to leave your house, or do some chores around the house. Exercise is proven to make you happier and it is the best and most efficient way to de-stress. It helps improve your mental health and memory, relieves stress, helps you sleep and boosts your overall mood.

Talk to friends or family.

When you get too stressed, it is best to talk to friends and family about it. You may feel like you are being a burden to them but it is much worse to keep it all inside. If you feel that you cannot speak to your friends and family about your problems, it may be a good idea for you to talk to a counsellor or your personal tutor - they are there to help you in any way that they can. Otherwise, write down your feelings - you will be surprised that it actually helps you calm down.

Don’t believe all your thoughts.

We as humans tend to blame something or someone for the cause of our negativity, when in fact; the negativity is because of us thinking that way. We don’t believe everything we see in magazines or the internet, so what makes you think you should believe your thoughts? As you change your negative thoughts, whatever they may be, to being positive, you become happier and mentally healthier. By doing this more and more, thinking positively will become unconscious. Whatever situation you find yourself in, no matter how bad it is, there is always a way to think positively instead of letting your mind drown in negativity.

    ALL THANKS TO UPSTART LOAN AM NOW FINANCIALLY STABLE . upstartloan@yahoo.com I am Michelle Huxford from Casper, Wyoming. I was in a very chronic financial issue and terminal health situation some few weeks back. After all my search for assistance from friends and neighbors proved abortive, I feel there was no one who truly cares. I became so emaciated due to lack of good food and my 2 kids age 5 and 8 were not also good looking due to lack of proper care as a result of finance. One faithful morning I saw an old time friend of my late husband and I told him all I have been going through and he said the only way he could help was to direct me to a good loan agency that also helped him, He explained to me on how he was financially down and how he got boosted by this loan agency UPSTART LOAN INC ( upstartloan@yahoo.com ) who grant him 245,000 USD loan at an affordable rate. He further assured me that they were the only legit loan firm he found in the quest of seeking for loan after been scammed by various fake loan lenders online. He gave me their email: upstartloan@yahoo.com or text/call (574) 301-1639, That was how i applied and was also granted a loan and my life changed for the good. CONTACT THE ONLY GENUINE LENDERS( UPSTART LOAN INC) VIA email: upstartloan@yahoo.com or call +1 (574) 301-1639 to resolve your financial mess.
