Dealing with Stress
The first year of college can be hectic, especially because everything is new to you.
New friends, new city, new school, new classes, everything will be different. It can be stressful and difficult to get use to the lifestyle. The whole new transition can make you homesick or overwhelmed by classes. It is crucial to learn how to balance out your life. Dealing with stress is something all college students do but dealing with stress effectively is something we learn as we go along. To help ease stress try making friends so once a week you can go out and just have fun. Take long walks around the campus because it helps with stress levels. Eat healthy and drink a lot of water, junk food can make you irritable. Also, stay in contact with your old friends and family because it sometimes gives you that extra support or push you need.
