Carrying the theme “Mental Health: How to Manage Overthinking And Deal With Academic Stress” and inviting Putu Denika Evilia Rosa, S.Psi (Mentor from One Percent) as a speaker, the participants of the webinar were invited and given tips on how to manage and deal with overthinking and academic stress that experienced by students.
The main factor for a student experiencing stress and overthinking is the tendency of a person to compare other people’s achievements with one’s own. According to the speaker, there are two things that can be done in an effort to manage stress, namely controlling emotional responses and overcoming sources of stress, by overcoming problems and finding appropriate solutions to these problems.
“When we experience stress, there are two things that we experience, there is a problem and our response to the problem. There are two ways to solve stress, emotionally and in terms of the problem. If emotionally, we do what we like to minimize the impact of stress. Meanwhile, in terms of problems, we overcome the problem that causes the stress.” Putu Denika said.
