Stress. More and more pressure is put on students in all types of education. As a student you often notice that you get more and more tasks to do, and that there are more and more tests to complete.
Where does it stop? You are already studying a lot as it is, and now there is even more added to that. How can you deal with this?
Many students experience stress because of this. Their heart starts to beat faster, they cannot relax, and they find it difficult to study anymore in some cases. Of course, this can have a large influence on your grades or your rest.
Stress namely in many cases also makes it so that you find it difficult to sleep, or that you cannot fall asleep as easily anymore.
