Stress can have a major impact on your grades, your relationships and your life as a college student. In fact, many students say stress is the main obstacle to their academic success. If you’re feeling anxious or stressed out, we can help.
Do you get headaches? Are you biting your nails, feeling irritable or having a hard time sleeping? Maybe it’s hard for you to concentrate, or you feel anxious. These are all signs that you may be stressed.
Stress is a normal reaction. Many times, you can’t avoid it. But you can often lower your stress levels just by taking better care of your body and mind.
