Coping Tips for Stress
Healthy exercise, sleeping, and eating habits are the best stress busters. Remind yourself that the mind and body are one and the same and prioritize your health.
Don't reinvent the wheel! Use tried and true stress relievers that work for you, just make sure to take small breaks from your busy schedule to relax.
Improve your time management skills by using a calendar, planner, or journal.
Forget the all-nighter. Losing sleep increases stress while also inhibiting your ability to learn. Study in short bursts with time in between to process.
Learn to say "no" when you are taking on too many responsibilities.
