Relax! It's National Stress Awareness Day

With the end of the semester quickly approaching, many students are understandably stressed about papers, presentations and final exams! Today is National Stress Awareness Day, which gives us an opportunity to recognize the things that are stressing us out, take a deep breath, and figure out ways to decrease the stress we're feeling. Experiencing too much stress can have a negative effect on health, personal relationships, and mental functioning.

Stop by the NCC Libraries and we'll help you find information on the causes of stress -- and what you can do to eliminate it!
