Stress is generally thought of in negative terms, but it can manifest itself positively and negatively. In this study, stress has a stressor that is merely a stimulus that causes stress. Stressors can be a multitude of things that worry people most in their life. The researchers will list and explain few examples that cause stress. In this topic, we aimed to determine the effects of stress on students’ study habits. Stress can also cause significant problems. Thus, if an individual will not take action, then the stress response can create or worsen our health problems. The researchers used a descriptive design that elaborates the effects of stress on students’ study habits.
