It’s time to handle about the (dis)stress you feel! February 27th, 2008 | No Comments

Wow! I wrote about, “Don’t Worry Be Students” last month and worry /stress is a hot topic in the news again! I guess it’s with good reason… seniors are hearing from colleges, and making a final decision is A LOT to think about. Juniors are planning to visit colleges over their winter breaks, making the college search and selection process seem all too real.

What a great time of year! It’s so exciting! Now there’s a different take on the (dis)stress you’re feeling! May I offer you some suggestions?
Get serious about addressing the issues
Identify what is causing you to feel stressed out.
Do a reality check
What are you concerned about – all of it – and how “big” is it? Perhaps talking with friends, family or a counselor can help you put it in perspective.
Get proactive
Decide what’s giving you the most “pain” and handle it!
Getting into action will help you feel in control.
Remember reaching out for help can be a sign of strength.
Have fun!
Be certain to schedule in time for relaxation and restoration. Your body needs both mental and physical breaks… be sure to connect with your circle of friends and family and take good care of yourself – exercise energizes!
