Feeling Stressed?

October can be a very stressful month for a lot of college students. Mid-terms, tests, and papers all add on to the stress of trying to make new friends, balancing class and free time. To help manage all this piling up stress, here are a few tips to help manage it.

  • Make sure you are getting enough sleep. Not getting adequate rest makes the little things stress you out more.
  • Have a good, balanced diet. The Cafeteria has a lot of food options, so go for more than just pizza. Poor diets have a lower threshold for reacting to stress. The produce section of the Cafeteria has a lot of healthy fruits and vegetables which help with bettering your diet.
  • Exercise: There are a lot of fun exercising opportunities. Taking a class with friends in the Schumo Center, playing intermural sports can not only be good exercise but can help you make new friends
  • Take a deep breathe. Breathe slowly through your nose, hold it for three to five seconds then exhale through your mouth.
