Stress! Sometimes it seems like the word is always connected with studying. That's because, as a student, you are often faced with situations that can trigger stress. 

A little stress can sometimes be useful. It sets you in motion to meet a deadline for a task, for example, and gives you a message about what is important to you in life. Too much and prolonged stress can negatively affect how you feel, think and act. Therefore, it is important to be aware of how to manage stress in a healthy way during your studies.
