Since coming back from England, I have been in the process of getting my son ready to move out and start his career as a University student. It has been stressful as (me being his mother) I do not want him to go through any hardship’s. While I want him to have the comforts of what he has at home I also want this to be a time for him to grow and become a responsible and well educated adult! As his parents, we want him to do well in his classes as well as having a good health and staying within his budget. Below are some tips from the National Health Service of the United Kingdom (NHS).
Student stress: self-help tips
Starting university can be a stressful experience. How you cope with the stress is the key to whether or not it develops into a health problem.
Stress is a natural feeling, designed to help you cope in challenging situations. In small amounts it’s good, because it pushes you to work hard and do your best, including in exams.
Leaving home to start your studies can involve some stressful changes. These might include moving to a new area, meeting new people and managing on a tight budget.
