    Content

    Chronic postponement or procrastination is a phenomenon many students are familiar with. Seminar papers are being postponed and deadlines adjusted, exam preparation is only in planning stage and implemented at the last minute under a great deal of stress and suffering. The environment often has little sympathy, students are called "lazy", they feel ashamed and suffer from guilt and bad conscience. Procrastination often conceals very high performance and perfection demands that are placed on oneself. The longer it takes, the more difficult it becomes to tackle a job - but procrastination has nothing to do with laziness.

     

    In the workshop "Stop postponing" you will learn concrete strategies with the help of which you will learn to do what you have set out to do: You will be able to progress in your studies and enjoy your free time at the same time.

    Content

    Studying can be very stressful: Examinations, written work, time pressure and planning, but also approaching unknown people and sitting in full lecture classes can cause experiences of stress and even fear for many students.

    A lot of stress and associated fears have an effect on the well-being: sleeping disorders, emotional ups and downs, retreat, but also a strong sense of anxiety and even panic attacks can be the result. These symptoms, in turn, can prevent you from successfully passing exams and studying effectively.

    In the workshop "Stress and Anxiety during Studies" you will learn more about the neuronal processes in stressful or frightening situations and learn strategies how to reduce and overcome stress and fears and thus regain more energy and joy for your life and studies.
