In the present day context, Lifestyle disorders are becoming more and more common. We cater to the following lifestyle services:
Academic stress among students have long been researched on, and researchers have identified stressors as too many assignments, competitions with other students, failures and poor relationships with other students or lecturers . Academic stressors include the student’s perception of the extensive knowledge base required and the perception of an inadequate time to develop it. Students report experiencing academic stress at predictable times each semester with the greatest sources of academic stress resulting from taking and studying for exams, grade competition, and the large amount of content to master in a small amount of time.
Marriage counseling leads to positive outcomes and research indicates it is more effective than no counseling. It helps couples to prepare for or adjust to new life stages such as new couple, family with young children, and family with adolescent children, launching children and moving on and family in later life. Each of these life stages put different demands on the couple and makes them aware of the new demands.
Job stress can be defined as the harmful physical and emotional responses that occur when the requirements of the job do not match the capabilities, resources, or needs of the worker. Job stress can lead to poor health and even injury. While some workplace stress is normal, excessive stress can interfere with your productivity and impact your physical and emotional health. And your ability to deal with it can mean the difference between success or failure.
Emotional health refers to your overall thought well-being. It includes the way you feel about yourself, the quality of your relationships, and your ability to manage your feelings and deal with situations that life brings.
Science has long recognized that some level of stress can be adaptive and even healthy, however, chronic student stress has been consistently associated with negative outcomes. For the majority of students in this study, academic stress is constant. More than 70 percent of students reported that they often or always feel stressed by their schoolwork, and 56 percent reported often or always worrying about such things as grades, tests, and college acceptance.
