YESTERDAY was R U OK? Day so The Morning Bulletin went to CQUniversity to find how students handle the stress.

R U OK? Day is aimed at preventing isolation through people supporting each other through life's ups and downs.

CQUniversity communications student Rebecca Elliott used the national R U OK? Day to hold her own information session for students.

"The aim of the event was to equip students with some tools to help make the load a little lighter," she said.

Rebecca said she knew all the new experiences and challenges that university study entailed were both exciting but stressful.

"It is important for people to ask others if they are okay. Even if they seem fine all the time, some people need to be asked," she said.

R U OK?

Five self-help tips for stressed students

Get a good night sleep, do not stay up cramming.

Eat well - a well-nourished body and mind relaxes.

Exercise - get your mind off things by pushing yourself physically.

Listen to music - block out your troubles for a minute.

Set small goals - bits get done quickly compared to lots never getting done.
