Read the article about student health and stress. Match paragraphs 1 to 5 with a suitable heading (a-g). There are two extra headings.

Stress is a term often used in relation to studying - what with exam pressure, assignments, seminar presentations, deadlines, extensions, pressure on computer facilities and so on. Not to mention juggling studying with a social life or feelings of isolation and loneliness for lack of a social life. Then there can also be out-of-control debts, poor housing, overcrowding, noise, and adjusting to life in a new environment or country.

1. The key to success is to think positively; take control of your stress and anxiety by learning effective techniques to combat it.

2. Be kind to yourself and give yourself 'me time' in which you can choose what you want to do. Take proper breaks and eat well.

3. Analyse problems carefully, don't just avoid them and hope that they will go away. Talk things through with someone else if necessary.

4. Think about and then organise yourself to take on some form of physical activity and enjoy the 'feel-good factor' that the resulting release of endorphins gives you. Walk, cycle, run, swim. Meet other people for a chat.

5. Writing about it, talking about it, shouting or moaning about it, all help to relieve stress. Sometimes having a good cry or bashing a pillow can soothe and calm your feelings of anxiety.
