Many students experience excessive stress, which can cost them a lot more than one can imagine. This can pave way for them to have health issues, depression, and even cause poor performance in their courses. Many teenagers and adults experience almost the same level of stress in life due to lack of rest, due assignments and too many complications caused by the rigid and improper education system which makes it difficult for students to cope with the pressure caused by colleges, schools and their teachers. 

Also, one of the reasons is that students don't find it appealing to participate in extracurricular activities at times which spoils their health and psychological well-being. Many students study all day and lock themselves in their rooms and do not go out and meet people, they don't find it charming enough to explore places and do things that make them happy.
