It’s the start of Semester 2 … Yay ! Hopefully the stresses of last Semester have been forgotten, and perhaps some lessons learned about what not to do.
There are few guarantees in life, death and taxes perhaps, and I might add that the increasing study pressure throughout the next semester is up there too.
So today’s blog post is just a short animation to demonstrate how chronic stress actually affects the brain. Hopefully this will give us a “heads up” about the importance of managing stress, and later blog posts we’ll explore some pro-active strategies to help keep on top of stress.
