Dear editor, Exam season has started and one can see stress among students. When a student experiences high levels of stress, it can interfere with her ability to learn, memorize, and earn good grades — as well as lead to poor physical, emotional and mental health. Students who don’t have healthy sleeping habits or don’t get enough sleep at night are more likely to feel stressed than students who get plenty of sleep, according to the National Sleep Foundation. Sleep allows a student’s brain to recharge, and it helps to keep the immune system strong. It is important that a student get enough sleep to remain stress free. Another factor that hinders growth and is a reason of concern is poor nutrition. Poor nutrition and unhealthy eating habits can increase a student’s stress level. A healthy diet that helps to reduce stress includes foods that are low in fat and high in fiber and complex carbohydrates. Such foods include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and lean proteins. Proper time management is one of the most effective stress-relieving techniques. Whether it’s relaxation, work or study, time must be spent wisely. Students must be able to design and stick to a timetable. Choose a relaxing break between work and study, even if it’s just taking out time to breathe. Moreover, Instead of feeling overwhelmed about all the deadlines, it’s best to make a list and sort them out one by one. This helps you to be more efficient and productive with your time. Also, a cup of coffee with family or friends is all one need to bring stress levels back to normal. Spend time with your family and talk to them about all the problems and issues, it will help a lot. So, this exam season let’s just pledge to remain stress free and give our best in examinations without any fear or stress. Shilpa Thakur, Jammu.
