Substance Abuse Counseling
One Day At A Time 2/17/2016 Newsletter
As we begin the second month of the Spring Semester, you may find your stress levels elevating a bit.
Juggling work, school and your personal life can prove to be a difficult task at times, so it’s important that you manage your stress as much as possible.
Here are a few tips from Campus Mindworks on Managing Stress:
“A feeling of control and a healthy balance in your schedule is a necessary part of managing stress. Learning how to manage your responsibilities, accomplish your goals and still have time for rest and relaxation requires that you practice time management skills.
Try setting a specific goal for yourself that will improve your mood and help you reduce stress. Start by filling out a goal-setting worksheet.
Exercise regularly. Physical activity can help you burn off the energy generated by stress.
Practice good sleep habits ensure that you are well-rested. Sleep deprivation can cause many physical and mental problems and can increase stress.
Pace yourself throughout the day, taking regular breaks from work or other structured activities. During breaks from class, studying, or work, spend time walking outdoors, listen to music or just sit quietly, to clear and calm your mind.
Start a journal. Many people find journaling to be helpful for managing stress, understanding emotions, and making decisions and changes in their lives.
Realize that we all have limits. Learn to work within your limits and set realistic expectations for yourself and others.
Find humor in your life. Laughter can be a great tension-reducer.
- Seek the support of friends and family when you need to “vent” about situations that bring on stressful feelings. But make sure that you don’t focus exclusively on negative experiences; try to also think of at least three things that are going well for you, and share those experiences.”
