Abstract

Introduction: Stress is the way we react or respond physically, mentally, and/or emotionally to various conditions, changes, and demands of life. The stress we experience is rooted in the “fight or flight” response, during which our bodies undergo physical changes that prepare us to respond to an exciting or dangerous situation. Once the situations has passed or is under control, our stress response subsides, allowing us to relax. However, the constant demands of academic or personal life can prevent us from becoming fully relaxed and can lead to stress overload.

Objective: To study effect of stress in NED university. We will see how stress effect on emotional, physical and mental health of a student and which year have maximum stress. Method: We took survey from 156 students, 39 students from each year. Age from 18-22. The questioner was made which was divided in 4 parts. 1st general question which had to be answer is yes and no. 2nd, 3rd, 4th parts are emotional, physical and mental health related which had to rate from 1-10. Software’s like Matlab and Minitab used.

Result: Overall stress 122 (78.2%). maximum stress was in 1st and 4th year 68 (87%), then in 3rd year 22(56.4%), in 2nd year minimum stress was found 19(48.7%).

Conclusion: The problem of stress can be resolved. However it take time and a lots of efforts from student. It is good to remember that stress is not always bad thing. It can also be impulse that motors them to finish any task. Student should organize time, have a healthy and balanced diet and doing exercise. Universities should review the balance of coursework and assessment.
