Signs that you are stressed and ways to cope

Even though we are not aware of it in every aspect of our lives, like the law of motion, the stress factor can manifest itself. Let's examine the symptoms of this factor, which may affect our health in the long and short term, and various methods to deal with this stress in your education life, although it sometimes motivates us.

1- Difficulty in sleeping or sleeping too much

If we see the brain as a machine engine, too much thought and therefore stress formed here will not allow it to function properly. This, in turn, may spend a lot of time dealing with stress or try to protect himself by not being able to take it any longer. 

You can try to stick to the schedule by setting specific times for sleeping and making it a schedule to create a regular sleep routine. You can do exercises that will relax your whole body before going to bed, you can consume herbal teas and try using stress-relieving fragrances such as lavender.

2- Constant Fatigue

Constant fatigue is something that stress brings, and you may feel tired no matter how long you sleep. This may cause you to be even more stressed by reducing you and your performance. To prevent this, it will help you to try a regular and healthy diet and to perform exercise programs that will transform the stress in your brain into physical fatigue.

3- Difficulty in focusing

Sometimes there is so much to do that you just can't focus or you get confused where to start, sometimes there is only one thing to do and that job is too big for you. In such a situation, if you have a lot to do, it is helpful to cut these things into small pieces. After breaking down into small parts, complete tasks or lessons that you think will be short and avoid doing two things at once. It will also be very useful to list the things to do and write it down on a piece of paper. Once something is written, it becomes easier to follow. Gather strength to focus by taking short breaks without straining your brain and when you're done with something, remove it from the list.

4- Eating too much or having no appetite

Everyone's stress occurs in different ways. In this case, if you have no appetite or if you are eating too much, it will be much better for your health to find the reason and take control of this tendency. If you eat a lot, it will be useful to create a calendar for your eating habits. When you create a calendar and then adapt to it, your body also will adapt to it.

If you don't have any appetite, try to consume small snacks during the day and keep them with you and eat a large meal whenever you feel very hungry. Make sure that the food and meals you prefer are healthy. Limit coffee drinking and create short, relaxing workouts to manage stress.

5- If you are in an unstable mood

If you feel that no method works or you feel trapped, you need to remind yourself that it's natural to feel that way. At this point, you should seek professional help and make time for yourself. You should not keep everything to yourself, it will also be of great benefit to talk to your family or friends you trust and pour out your heart. Nothing is more important than your health. So it would be much better to ask for a little more time and focus on yourself for what needs to be done.
