CHAPTER I

Introduction

Todays mobile phone users are often extensively dependent upon applications to

accomplish their daily needs. Mobile applications help the users in the following ways: accessing

email, navigation, chatting, reading e Books etc. All these purposes are fulfilled only when there

is a framework, which provides a complete mobile platform to achieve these tasks. Android is one

of the mobile application based platforms for providing a wide range of applications that are

reliable.

The advancement and efficiency on every endeavor of the school, St. Louis Anne Colleges

is one of most the students desired. The researchers want to develop an application which has a

helpful feature that could be beneficial to both Students and to everyone. The application has a

Stress management features and Reviewing Tips for student who facing struggles on their studies.

The Stress management refers to the wide spectrum of techniques and psychotherapies

aimed at controlling a person's levels of stress, especially chronic stress, usually for improving

everyday functioning. Stress produces numerous physical and mental symptoms which vary

according to everyones situational factors. These can include physical health decline as well as

depression. The process of stress management is named as one of the keys to a happy and

successful life in modern society. Although life provides numerous demands that can prove

difficult to handle, stress management provides many ways to manage anxiety and maintain overall

well-being.

An effective reading strategy will help you commit information for the long term. Have

you ever taken a training course, read a business book, or learned a new skill, but then forgotten

almost everything about it within a few weeks? When you don't have the chance to apply new

knowledge, it's easy to forget what you have learned. Therefore, it's so important not only to take

notes, but also to review what you have learned regularly, so that you can remember it for the long-

term. In this article, we look at the benefits of reviewing information, and we explore several

strategies that you can use to do this effectively. Why Review Information? When we learn new

information, we remember it best immediately after we have learned it. We then forget details as

time passes. Even after a few days, we may be able to recall only a little of what we initially

learned.

Studying and reading are not the same. We read novels, but we have to study textbooks.

Textbooks are dense and introduce a lot of new material - without having great plots or characters.

Thus, while reading is an important first step, it won't usually transfer the new information into

your long-term memory. To do that, you have to apply ACTIVE strategies to learn the material in

the book.

Background of the Study

Today the use of cell phones has become an amazing part of daily life. Next, we are going

to describe briefly about the history and current state of mobile technologies.

Stress is one of the most fundamental problems spanning through human endeavor. Nweze

(2005) stated that for two and half decades, stress phenomenon has become a topical issue in

management development, seminars and workshops in Nigeria. He further stated that the

popularity of stress stems from several obvious reasons.

First, nobody is immune to stress. We can be caught up in a situation that causes or induces

stress in the individual. Thus, as a part of human living the young, old, rich, poor, professionals

and lay men alike are potential victims of stress. Second, because stress is viewed as the disease

of growth and development, there is the search for the stress virtue in modern life.

Reading is more than just a goal; reading and comprehending are essential for success in

math, history, geography, science, engineering, and any other school subjects. And its not just

helpful in school. Everyday reading, whether of a recipe, an appliance manual, a road sign, or a

newspaper, is dependent on knowing how to read the words and also on understanding those words

and phrases. A young person who can only decode the words misses the true meaning of any text

and may never learn to love reading.

Foreign Literature

DOMJAN & DUFFY

In our daily living, we are facing different kinds of stress. Stress is a natural phenomenon in
which simply means that it cannot be controlled (Selye) Stress is defined as the reaction of the
individual to demand from environment that possesses a threat. Stress is related specific fear of
failure, fear of teachers evaluations, fear of harming patient, fear of interaction with patient and
families. The people who are susceptible in psychological stressors are the one who have poor
social network, neurotic disposition, lack of hardness and who have experienced traumatic events
in life (Domjan).In psychobiological stress responses, it may affect the biological and
constitutional prosperities like the students background; age and sex, diet, smoking and alcohol
intake, physical fitness and menstrual cycle may also influence reactivity to stress (Duffy).
Prolonged and extreme stress will eventually overwhelm the individuals physical and
psychological resources, thus the student is unable to think rationally, unable to make wise
decisions

MARTIN KWASI ABIEMO

Whilst there is little disagreement about the prevalence of stress there is considerable debate about
what the word (stress) actually refers to. In ordinary conversation we seem to be willing to apply
the word to both cause and effect. In other words, the common sense view of stress is that it is a
combination of external stressors and our response in the early and highly influential research of
Selye (1936). Stress is as the result of an interaction between an individual emotional, intellectual,
social, and physical resources and the demands on him or her.

Marshall & Cooper (1981)

argue that stress is a different phenomenon form pressure. Stress is something more than mere
pressure. It carries strong overtones of the breakdown of normal human performance. In an earlier
work, Cooper & Marshall, (1978), the same two authors concluded that stress is essentially
individually defined and must be understood with reference to characteristics of both the individual
and his environment, as it is the outcome of the two.

LOCAL LITERATURE

A. students, especially freshmen, are a group particularly prone to stress


(D'Zurilla&Sheedy, 1991) due to the transitional nature of college life (Towbes& Cohen,
1996; in www.questia.com). They must adjust to being away from home for the first
time, maintain a high level of academic achievement, and adjust to a new social
environment (www.questia.com). According to Lazarus, stress is what we feel when we
think we've lost control of events (www.ezinearticle.com).
B.
Pursuing a college education requires adjustment on the part of all students, though the
type and degree of adjustment experienced by each student will vary depending on
background, experience, and prior schooling (www.encyclopedia.com).
Adjustment to college is critical for academic success. Poor college adjustment correlates
with poor academic performance, low graduation rates, and poor success later in life
(www.interscience.wiley.com).Past researches showed that adjustment difficulties are found to
be the most common problems among first year students who are going through an active
adjustment phase in college or universities. Therefore, adjustment difficulties among students
should be given serious attention as a serious adjustment problem could lead to students' failure
to complete their studies (www.eurojournals.com).

C. Here in the Philippines, particularly in the Saint Theresa's College, the greatest number of
student problems that cause them stressed was found in the areas of personal adjustment,
school life and the future, according to Algoet (as cited in www.scribd.com). As
observed and responded by the counselors in the Student Development Center (SDC) of
Cor Jesu College, based from their counseling session with the students, they reported
that most of the first year students considered their subject instructors, peers, time
schedule and school policies as factors to their adjustment difficulty in college. These
factors also make the students become stress. This study intends to find out whether
there is a relationship between stress management and adaptation to college of freshmen
student of the Department of Arts and Sciences and in CorJesu College of Digos City.

Foreign Studies
A. According to R. Lazarus, stress occurs when an individual perceives the external
environmental demands as beyond his power. Later, along with Lazarus, S. Folkman
proposes in one of their works, the idea that stress can be seen as the result of "imbalance
between demands and resources" or as a result of "pressure that exceeds the power
supposed to be held". That arise can generate a state stress switch that arise can
generate a state of acute stress which may manifest itself through lower productivity at
work, loss of attention etc

B. According to Amy London Deutschendorf, in providing health care in themillennium, health care
providers were challenged with a lot of obstructions. Thecondition of nursing vocation should be
examined seriously to reconsider the applicationof the nursing procedure in the existing and future health
care environment, todetermine solutions for the future quality care delivery.

C. In Brenda Patons concerted research study about students who areexperiencing changing level of
vulnerability, hesitation and confidence to practice withintheir own level of competency, students talked
about knowing how to carry out skills butnot knowing the ropes within the clinical area and consequently
feeling like anstranger in unfamiliar territory. Students were confronted with the fear of not knowing,do
not belong and being hesitant of their performances. They are conscious of their lackof knowledge, the
desire to make it accurate and avoid harm, and reality of not beingable to practice.

Local Studies

Causes of stress are called stressors. It is an agent or condition capable of producing stress or
something that initiates a stress response; it can be people, objects, places or events. These are
outside forces that place unusual demands on a persons body or mind. Modern life exposes
people to many stressors. Some physical stressors remain, including natural disasters, illness, and
noise. Certain life experiences, such as the death of a loved one, are major stressors. Day-to-day
problems, such as burning toast, taking rest, or feeling rushed, may also be stressful. People need
not experience events directly to feel stress. Television, newspapers, and other means of mass
communication flood people with information about upsetting occurrences throughout the world.
People can also imagine future misfortunes and regret past failures. Experts consider modern life
particularly stressful for children and families. Not all stressors affect everyone in the same
manner. In a particular situation, one person may remain quite calm while another person may
display many signs of stress. The difference between the two people may be that the first person
feels in control of the situation and views it as a challenge and is therefore committed to
overcome it.

Duque (2007) cited common effects of stress. These are insomnia, headaches, backaches,
constipation, diarrhea, high blood pressure, heart disease, depression and alcohol, tobacco or
drug use. He suggested doing the following: a. After seeing the doctor, share your treatment plan
with people close to you. Talk with friends and relatives and explain what you are going through;
b. If your doctor prescribes medication take it exactly the way it is prescribed. Do not stop taking
your medication until you doctor tells you to stop doing so c. Keep all follow-up appointments
with your doctor; d. Remember that it may take some time to start feeling better; e. If you
experience side effects from any medication, tell your doctor; and f. Seek professional
counseling.

Salvacion (2004) studied the stress profile of students in the College of Dentistry of the
University of the Philippines, Manila. The study involved 149 dentistry student-respondents.
Academic stressors like examinations and grades, fully loaded days, difficulty in completing
clinical requirements, and fear of getting delayed topped the identified stressors. Academic
factors were stressful in the first 3 year levels. Academic stress peaked during the sophomore
year. No significant differences in rankings were observed between genders. There was
undeniable similarity in the general stress profile of the different year levels.

Grandea (2006) used the descriptive research approach in studying the stress and coping
mechanisms of college freshmen of Southville International School and Colleges. It involved
201 student-respondents. The student-respondents experienced high perceived stress. The
identified main stressors were academics. The student-respondents used positive stress coping
mechanisms. The perceived stress and coping mechanisms of the student-respondents were
independent of their profile.
