Stress Management

Assignments, deadlines and university life, together with the social pressure to excel academically and achieve a successful career can easily lead to an increase in stress levels.

According to Hungarian scientist Hans Selye, stress is someone's reaction towards an environmental demand and is a normal occurrence. During normal levels of stress, our body releases hormones meant for survival which can help boost the immune system. However, high levels of stress can be detrimental to our academic and personal life if left unchecked.
