First congrats on entering medical school... I'd say stress is part of our life regardless of what major or specialty you're in... a couple of steps to consider to deal with stress is :
- Change the way you look at stress, so instead of letting stress get into you try to look at it as a challenge to push yourself, go out of your comfort zone and be more resilient.
- Stress usually is a result of lack pf preparation and readiness, so try as much as you can to be proactive about your assignments, exam study, and attendance of lectures
- Its good to release stress from time to time through physical activities, such as outdoor Jogging or walking, Gym if the weather is not that great, a hobby you like, or even catching up with a friend over coffee all could help to recharge
- keep the focus on your end result (Graduation) and always remember that if it was easy everyone have had done it. This way you would find the determination and energy to keep going and overcome the everyday challenges you would come across.
