How to deal with great stress academically and elsewhere?

  • Aug 30, 2009
Rating:
+5
This book is excellent because the author deals
definitively with the classic "stressors" in the lives
of most students. The presentation provides practical
coping strategies to identify stress and deal with it
in a timely and constructive manner. There is coverage
of the breathing techniques for greater oxygenation,
as well as strategies to handle limited time and
seemingly hostile peers and relevant others.

The book advises students to do the following:
o be assertive so that we have the time to attend to priorities
o build personal relationships
o take calculated risks in our decision-making
o make decisions over analysis paralysis
o stay healthy because we cannot do difficult sustained work
unless we are healthy
o deal with fear constructively and within the bounds of
people and things we can control

Overall, the volume would be a tremendous resource in order
to assist students with personal planning at school and elsewhere.
