First of all let’s clear one thing up – stress is completely normal. It is often a result of feeling under pressure or having multiple demands upon us. When we have a lot to do and lots to think about, we can feel like we have lost control.
Stress can be helpful at times – it can give us drive and motivation, and can encourage us to be productive. However, if we are feeling too stressed for long periods of time, it can then have an impact on our general wellbeing and mental health. If you feel you are having difficulty managing your stress levels at the moment, it may be time to consider going to see your GP, or popping a long to a Student Wellbeing Centre drop-in to chat further with an advisor.
Student Wellbeing Drop-in Times:
- Monday – Friday between 12-2pm
- Thursday evenings (during term-time only) between 5-7pm
