Warning Signs Of Stress For Students

Jan 14, 2008
When you're in your late teens and early twenties, stress can play a huge role especially when you're attending school, working two jobs, and trying to balance your friends. While some students can accomplish these grueling tasks, a lot of people will give up on school and work low wage jobs because of the stress. Below I've included some warning signs when it comes to stress and school.

Changes in patterns

If you're having problems sleeping at night or you have a change in sleep pattern for weeks straight, this may be caused because of stress in your life. Studies have shown that a human being must get at least eight hours of sleep each night. If you're not getting the proper amount of sleep, consult a doctor.

Another big pattern that may be a sign of stress is your eating habits. If you find yourself either eating a lot more than usual or vice versa, this may be a huge sign. Some people find that eating is their comfort zone where they can get away from everything. On the other hand, people may avoid food because they don't think their stomach can handle it.

Headaches and illnesses

If you seemed to feel like you were healthy all the time before college and now all of a sudden you feel like you've been getting sick all the time, this may be because you body is becoming weak due to the stress causing your immune system to fail.

Big signs involving illnesses may include get constant headaches all the time common illnesses like the flu or a cold. Believe it or not, stress can cause bodily harm to your body. This is why it's very important to get doctor's advice when you're feeling under the weather all the time.

Can't control time

If you find yourself not being able to keep up with projects anymore or you feel like you just can't manage your time, you may be finding yourself to be a little disorganized due to not having any energy. Having no energy is related to your immune system and body health. Without your body energy, it's very hard to accomplish tasks. Once again, if you feel like you don't have any energy, consult a doctor immediately.

Stress is a lot more common in the school workplace than you think and it's not only caused by family or work problems but it can be caused just by being overwhelmed. If you feel like you're being overwhelmed, make sure you cut back on a few things like work or friend activity. It's important that you keep school as your number one priority. You're going to school in the first place for a brighter future.

As we stated in this article countless times, if you can't control your stress or you're having these types of symptoms, make sure that you contact your family doctor right away. Your doctor will have remedies and solutions that will help better your college life.
