College Students & Stress: 3 Ways to Help Avoid (or Just Handle) College Stress

College can be extremely stressful and draining. If you aren’t careful, this stress can lead you to suffer in various aspects of your life.

For college students, September signifies the fact that the fall semester is well under way, and then spring means that finals are fast approaching. This time of year can also signify an escalated level of stress in college student’s lives. It’s important to be a little bit stressed – it will ensure that you stay on top of your hefty work load. But when stress starts taking a major toll on your psyche, it’s time to reevaluate.

Because stress is unavoidable, you have to equip yourself with the right strategies on how to handle it effectively and proactively. Here are my top three tips on avoiding stress in college:

  • Remember to sleep. If you’re not getting sufficient amounts of sleep, it will always have an adverse effect on your life.
  • Don’t spread yourself too thin. While it’s definitely important to make the most of your college career, you need to remember to pick and choose the way you spend your time carefully.
  • Maintain a healthy diet. Eat the right foods to keep your body going.

Great tips, Anna Everson . Wish I could get my college kids to get the right amount of sleep, so tough!

Just shared this with the class I'm teaching. The last few days can be so intense!
I understand you ...
The tips are right but too short. It's more useful to provide some ways to save time for rest. My son sometimes uses free services with templates of some homework, for example or something like this, which helps to significantly reduce the time for exams.
I would use those tips
Thank you so much for sharing it. I've recently joined the college and it's so hard for me to socialize and focus on all lessons. Fortunately, I found one source with coursework writing help, so studying became easier. But I still feel so anxious and I hope your tips will help me.
