WHO International Mental Health Day

Dealing with stress

I've added a page on dealing with stress to the study skills section of the website. This is a page I've been meaning to add for a while, and now seems the perfect time. The page contains:
   -  an overview of what stress is;
   -  some common symptoms of stress;
   -  10 ways to cope with stress.
There is also a short section on dealing with exam stress. The References section contains links to useful resources on the topic for further reading. The pages comes with a podcast so you can listen to the information on the go.
