Disturbed psychological conditions can affect the immunity of the human body to fight viruses, as well as the ability to think clearly so that they cannot pay attention to a healthy lifestyle. Students in higher education are also feeling the impact and consequences of COVID-19. Unpreparedness and confusion of students in taking part in online lectures along with a pile of assignments can cause anxiety, especially during the pandemic. Anxiety in students with distance learning, especially with the covid-19 pandemic, can cause ongoing anxiety and impact student achievement and the inability of students to fulfill their roles and obligations if they are not immediately controlled and handled.
