Midterms are here and obviously you’re stressed. If you don’t find ways to deal with your stress, it could become harmful to your health and well-being. So here are a few ways to limit and manage your stress.
- Don’t overwhelm yourself. Set priorities and stick to them or handle each task as it comes.
- Try exercising. Afterwards, you’ll feel energized and have a clear mind.
- Do not turn to drugs or alcohol. They don’t help at all and can make things worse.
- Keep the negativity at bay. Stop worrying about things that no one can change and take time to focus on all the positive and good things going on.
- Try organizing yourself. This could help unclutter your mind and feel a sense of being in control.
- Take a break! Leave and go get some fresh air. Laugh it up with some friends. Take a nap and visit lala land. Relax. Just don’t think about it.
- Seek some help. If all else fails and you truly feel like there is nothing left to do; then visit Towson University’s Health & Counseling Center for some assistance, guidance, or further resources.
