If you are a college student like me, it's very unlikely that you've been able to spend a lot of time at home since you have become a collegian. The constant movement and juggling between class, work and a social life, makes you always on the go. There's one more thing that burdens some students the more and that is financial issues. All this results to stress.

Stress is an emotional or physical response to an identifiable stressor or group of stressors which can be both external and internal stressors. It is often accompanied by nervous behavior. Stress may result from either pleasant or unpleasant factors.

Stress is a common human experience which affects the mental, physical, and emotional well-being of human beings.

Stress may result from either pleasant or unpleasant factors. Positive stress is known as eustress.

Eustress is the feeling of enjoyment that comes from taking on a challenge that is just within your ability to complete. Eustress is generally linked to positive thoughts, feelings and emotions and is not as destructive as distress.

Positive stressors are events or situations that cause positive stress (eustress), but ultimately have a positive outcome. Examples of positive stress include such things as taking a test and preparing for a presentation at work.

Negative stressors are the stressful events or situations we don't desire, including things like divorce, going through a break-up, or losing your job.

Some of the same physiological reactions happen when experiencing either eustress or distress.

It can be said that stress can good and helpful; it actually helps you to be on alert. Nevertheless stress most times can be harmful and it is caused by the pressure of everyday life such as: school, family problems, career and etc.

Helpful stress can make you more productive and attentive, but if you don't deal with it in the right way, stress is like a time bomb for your body. If you leave it unattended, it can harm your body.

The symptoms of stress are caused by the release of adrenaline, which occurs in response to stress. The body responds to this by sending messages to the brain and other organs, which releases cortisol and other chemicals into the bloodstream.

When responses to stress are not adequate, a variety of health problems can result, such as heart disease, weight gain, tooth decay, colds, high blood pressure and it can create feelings of anxiety

Managing stress

Keeping your stress levels low is a generally good idea for your body and your mind. That is why it is important for one to learn how to manage stress better; first step is to identify the causes of stress in his or her life.

Some people are like a pressure cooker; they vent out steam and frustrations on a regular basis. The best way to approach stress is by adopting a sort of “pressure cooker” mindset. If you let out steam, it just builds up again and again. However, if you don’t let it out, you can burst! The same is true for stress and anxiety

For example, if you are a student and you have much homework, but do not have enough time to do them, the pressure caused by that situation can cause stress. So you need to manage to find time to accomplish your goals.

Fortunately, there are things that you can do to help you manage or reduce your levels of stress through simple lifestyle change like: yoga, meditation, laughter therapy and singing, exercise etc

For those who are reading this and you're in the middle of a stressful situation, there is one philosophy you should always remember.

Relax! Breathe deeply. Be at peace.

Relax! Breathe deeply. Be at peace.

For short-term stress, these four words will help you find your way to returning peace to your life.

I experienced a lot of stress when I was working on a toxic account in a call center company. My blood count dropped to 133K and then to 12k. Stress can really kill if not properly managed.
