Abstract: There are few scenarios in one’s life when we feel that “my life is out of Control”. These feelings are at the extreme when we are a student especially a college level. A college level student is forced to decide the course of their life and career during their stay at campus. Therefore they are left battling with so many emotional, career and social feelings which unknowingly pushes the student towards adverse situations. These mixed feeling and situations are a main reason behind stress and anxiety among students. In order to identify the factors which are associated with the level of stress especially among students a study (Online Survey) was conducted among various college level students studying in the geographical area of Punjab (Banur). In this study a few factors have been highlighted which although are very insignificant but can be a major cause behind creation of feelings which leads to stress and anxiety. Four categories of academic stressor (i.e. personal frustration, learning hours, financial issues, and health related issues) and four categories describing reactions to these stressors (i.e. Behavioral, Psychological, Social and Cognitive effects) were examined. The online survey sample consisted of 158 students studying in four different colleges falling in the geographical area of Punjab region. The findings emphasized on various factors like pressure of studies, poor knowledge on how to live a balanced life etc. The findings of this study can further be used by various researchers and motivational speakers who are working on designing of certain program along with workshops on how to live a balanced life which is healthy, happy and successful.
