- Handling college stress is one of the bigger challenges students face during their time in school.
- From classes and mean lecturers to relationships and time management, the stress of college life always affects many students. However, having stress in college doesn’t always have to mean being stressed in campus. Most Importantly: Don’t Stress About Being Stressed,this may seem ridiculous at first, but it is listed first for a reason: when you’re feeling stressed, you feel like you’re on edge and the best way to handle stress is to not get more stressed about . . . being stressed.
- If you’re stressed out, admit it and figure out how to handle it. Focusing on it will only make things seem worse. Get Some Sleep, Being in campus does not means your sleep schedule is, most likely, far from ideal. Getting more sleep can help your mind refocus, recharge, and re-balance.
- Get Some Quiet Time,Take one moment and think: when was the last time you had some quality, quiet time alone? Personal space for students in college rarely exists. You may share your room,your classrooms, , the library, and anywhere else you go during an average day. Finding a few moments of peace and quiet – with no cell phone, roommates, or crowds – might be just what you need.
- Stepping out from the crazy college environment for a few minutes can do wonders for reducing your stress. Get Some Fun,You may be stressed about one particular thing: a final paper due Monday, a class presentation due Thursday. You basically just need to sit down and plow through it. If this is the case, try to figure out how to make it a little more fun and enjoyable.
