Stress comes in waves; everyone experiences periods of stress, and that's okay; it's part of life and drives us to greater achievements. Dealing with stress is a bit like learning to surf big waves. Of course, you get out of balance every now and then. You fall into the water and get pulled under. Normally, you will quickly surface and climb back on your board. On to the next wave. But, how different does that feel when your complaints become chronic. The motto of Surf your Stress is "Learn to balance & ride the waves" and we would like to help you with that.
Surf your Stress was started by the university with input from students. Because, although your study period is often described as "the best time of your life", studying can be quite stressful. Many students experience stress during their studies. you are definitely not alone!
With this project, we want to stimulate the dialogue about stress at the university, provide you as a student with more information and offer practical tools to better deal with it. We organize various events every year, culminating in the "Surf your Stress" week in November.
