Exam time is often a time where increased levels of stress, long hours of studying and little personal time can add up to an overwhelming situation for some students.

To help students along the way, Student Wellness Services will be running the 15 Days of Exams Health Challenge across social media platforms Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr.

Kate Humphrys, Health Promotion Coordinator at Student Wellness Services, suggests students take a comprehensive approach – looking at the bigger health picture – when it comes to staying healthy and managing stress at exam time.
