Stress with procrastination
We often estimate the time necessary to perform the task, but underestimate how much time it will actually take
try focusing on the "bits and pieces" of the assignment, it seems more achievable and can seem less stressful
Personality and stress
Don't let stress take over your life!
Personality variables may serve as potential moderators for stress, that shapes how you deal, cope, and see stress
variables include optimism, hope, self-efficiency, and other positive thoughts

The Stress Model

2. Perceived as stressful. (Realization)
3. Physiological, psychological and behavioral response. (Bodies response)
4. Stress response fails to remove problem.
5. Over a prolonged period of time stress triggers physiological and psychological illness. (Could become ill if not removed)
Stress with Exams

If your stress levels become too high over a prolonged period of time it can be detrimental to your chances of exam success and even to your general health.
