  I feel it is important to be aware of the connection between time and stress  management because more often than not if you feel like you are running out of time  your stress level sky rockets. One example of a when I allowed time to be a stress factor  for me was at work. I am given 2 weeks at a time to complete a list of projects. The first  day of the second week I was about a half days work ahead of schedule, so I decided to  take a day off. My thought was, “I will just work a little harder the rest of the days this  week and I will get everything done.”  Low and behold, my youngest got very ill the next  day and missed two days of school. This meant I was also home with her. Now instead  of being a half day ahead, I was two and half days behind. I was a mess the rest of the

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
