Add Stress-Relieving Techniques To Your Toolbox!
Stress is a normal reaction to life that we all experience as humans, but the body cannot distinguish between life-threatening and non-life-threatening stressful situations. This means that it’s up to us to signal the body to turn off the stress response when it is not needed.
Today’s students face more stress than any previous generation, and learning how to manage and cope with that stress is crucial to maintaining physical and mental health.
When it comes to stress, there are avoidable and unavoidable stressors. It’s essential to learn techniques for managing both. For example, learning time management skills can help students avoid the stress of completing assignments last minute.
Learning techniques for both avoiding stressful situations and coping mechanisms for the inevitable are essential tools that every student needs.
If you want to learn how to identify the many symptoms of stress, learn how to avoid stressful situations, and learn techniques for managing unavoidable stress, join me for my next Facebook class, Student Survival Guide on Tuesday, October 27th at 7:00 pm EDT.
Do You Have What It Takes?
There are times when stress can be a great motivator, but too much of a good thing can have negative consequences. When the body is in a constant state of hormonal fight-or-flight, other vital functions can suffer. If gone unchecked, the risk of developing stress disorders such as anxiety or depression increases, as does the likelihood of burnout.
Emotional, physical, cognitive, and behavioral reactions to stress can lead to:
-Mood imbalances leading to irritability, hostility, and negative thinking.
-Muscle tension resulting in reduced sleep and lack of concentration.
-Overeating from prolonged exposure to stress hormones.
-Cognitive decline lowering ability to remember important information.
-Weak immune system increasing the risk of illness.
To beat these adverse reactions to stress, join me for the Student Survival Guide where you will have the opportunity to learn a variety of techniques for avoiding and coping with stressful situations.

Reduce Stress For Academic Success
Academic studies are stressful, and too much of that stress will hold you back from doing your best and can lead to missed opportunities and mistakes. In fact, excessive stress has frequently been linked to low grades and poor quality work.
My goal for the Student Survival Guide is to help you understand how the body responds to stress as well as the mental, physical, and emotional effects that stress can cause. Understanding how stress mechanisms are triggered provides more control allowing us to turn them off.
This is the perfect class for anyone looking for stress management techniques dedicated to students. The student experience is expected to come with some level of stress. Learning how to excel through stress is a lesson that will last a lifetime.
