College life is rewarding yet stressful. In fact, based on our 2012 ACHA survey results SVSU students said that the number one reason why they did not do well in their academics was STRESS! There are also a number of other factors that students felt influenced their academics, which we have included in the following list.
|2. Sleep difficulties||22%|
|5. Cold and/or flu||14%|
|6. Social media outlets and video games||13%|
8. Concern for a troubled freind or family member
|9. Relationship Difficulties||8%|
|10. Participation in Extracurricular Activities||7.5%|
There is good and bad stress. Good stress is what motivates people to finish a project or study for an exam. Bad stress is the kind that lingers and can actually hinder people from performing well. Stress can show up physically and emotionally. Always check up with yourself to make sure that you are taking care of yourself when you are stressed out so that it doesn't come out in ways you didn't plan such as an outburst in a relationship or not performing well on an exam.
Are you stressed out?! It is important that if you are stressed that you find healthy ways to reduce stress so that is why we have come up with a list of 20 ways to de-stress at SVSU.
Take time for you!
