personal development. This article will deal with management of negative stress.

Causes Of Stress In Students

Causes of stress in school children include; bullies, a mismatch between student and
teacher, concerns about not having enough friends, not in the same class as friends,
peer pressure, lack of family time, over scheduling of extra-curricular activities,
insufficient sleep, poor diet, lack of preparation, noise pollution among others.

As the students progress to a different level the causes of stress often increase.
When students go to college or university, they have to contend with leaving their
parents and beginning the process of finding their own identity as adults and their
place in the world. The main causes of stress here will therefore include; the new
university or college environment, payment of fees, the new relationships formed,
the competitive circumstances, exams, lack of proper time management techniques,
peer and parental pressure.

How Students Can Manage Stress

Students can manage stress using various techniques. The most important of these

  1. Learning to manage their time wisely. This is done by setting up a study
    schedule, breaking up studies into smaller chunks. In short, students are
    advised to formulate, with the help of their teachers and parents, study
    timetables and adhere to them.
  2. The student will also need to have a system of organization for note-taking,
    keeping track of assignments and other important papers.
  3. Creating a good study environment is also a great tool for stress management.
    Students have different study habits. While some need a completely quiet room
    free from interruptions, others actually study better listening to quiet music in
    the background. A student should pick which is best for him or her.
  4. Determining the most appropriate learning style: whether the student is a
    visual, kinesthetic or auditory learner. Tailoring your study practices around your
    particular learning styles makes success easier to attain and keeps stress at bay.
  5. Using relaxation techniques like deep breathing, visualization or imagery,
    progressive muscle relaxation, meditation and yoga. Additionally, being
    optimistic will help students become healthier, less stressed and more
  6. Learning how to budget money, spend wisely and pay bills on time, if any, is
    very important for the student's survival and will lower stress levels.
  7. Lastly, students must take care of their bodies and minds by getting proper
    nutrition, getting some form of physical exercise and getting enough sleep.
    Seven hours of sleep each night is recommended for optimum body and brain
    function. Naps, not exceeding one hour, should also be taken when needed.

Following these tips will help you greatly to reduce the stress and it might even help
to improve your performance on exams.
