Tips were given to deal with the academic stress. ‘Budget your time, have sound sleep, have healthy food habits, do simple exercises’ are some of the rules to keep your stress at bay. She further emphasized the importance of time management. She mentioned that the mornings are the ideal time to study. She further said that assignments or projects and learning of the subject that you feel too tough shouldn’t be left until the last minute; seek help, if necessary, consult and take guidance from your teachers, parents or counsellors.
