Online Submission, Paper presented at the National Level Seminar on Proactive Stress Coping Strategies for Developing Mental Well Being (St. Josephs Training College, Mannanam, Kottayam, Kerala, India, Jan 9-10, 2015)
The purpose of the study was to find out the significance of health education strategies for coping with academic stress. Comprehensive health education strategies for coping with academic stress can help students obtain the greatest benefits from education and become healthy and productive adults .One child out of four has an emotional, social, or physical health limitation that interferes with learning. Such problems include poor nutrition, lack of physical activity, substance abuse, family and social violence, mental health problems, and factors during pregnancy affect child development. Teachers and parents are in a unique position to influence young people's physical, mental, and social well-being. The following sections of this report summarize strategies that can be used by academic centers, parents, and students to alleviate academic stress. All events in life brings about a reaction, but there are varied ways through which people reacts or responds to them, coping with stress is the attempt to manage or deal with stress. In their view, coping does not necessarily result in success. They comment that successful coping includes becoming aware of incidents and situations that one perceives as being stressful, and recognizing stressors means being aware of how your body responds to stress. Even though the counseling centre advises individual students who avail themselves for counseling on time management, it is envisaged that workshops, seminars and conferences on "techniques in managing stress" and "time management" for all students will go a long way to equip students with ways of coping with stress.
