From Stress to Success


Many students in higher education suffer from stress. The good news is that stress is manageable to a large extent. This book gives you hands-on advice on how to do so. It discusses the most common forms of stress in students: worrying, fear of failure and perfectionism. It also takes a closer look at writing anxiety and public speaking anxiety. As you are working with the exercises, you will notice that you experience less stress, stressful periods pass more quickly, and that you recover faster from stressful events. This will not only boost your performance but also help you get more enjoyment from your studies.
