Priscila’s Answer

Hi Gwen,
(This is a group answer) Try to do things you like, meditation, music, watching movies and series, to go to a quiet place, nature, or the beach - look and listen to the waves, take deep breaths, do sports you enjoy, whatever it is swimming, basketball, jogging. Also going out with friends, laughing, going to comedy shows, helping animals. If you can manage your calendar to have a few things outside of your studies and chores on a daily basis, you can use those moments to release stress. Hope this helps! Take care! Good luck!

Linda’s Answer

There are simple ways to interrupt stress when it becomes overwhelming. And, you can do them in class... breathing is very useful.... inhale for 4 counts, hold 4 four counts, exhale for 4 counts... repeat three or four times until you feel some release from the stress.. another useful exercise... rub your thumb and forefinger together very slowly, concentrate on feeling the ridges on your fingers.. do this for about 2 minutes.. once you break the stress cycle, you will find your mind will be more clear and your heart will stop racing. You are better able to focus with more positive energy... once you tap into your positive, confident self you will be able to better deal with class. When you are out of class, physical exercise... even just a walk.. is very good as well.. listening to soothing music is helpful too. These methods will serve you well throughout life... and there are many other techniques available too. Find something that works for you and make it a habit.. Take Care!

Kelsey’s Answer

Hi! When I was in college I would take "mental" breaks by looking over my notes and make sure they make sense to me. My notes were always well organized which helped me when I was studying. I would go over these notes during class in case a question came up that I had also had, or so I could ask my professor while there. Take a breathe, look over your notes, reorganize them if you have to and kind of "zone" into them to give yourself that break that you need.

Judith-Ann’s Answer

Hi, Gwen. Your answer indicates that it stresses you when teachers and peers keep talking. I understand how stressful it can be when teachers keep talking and when peers keep talking. In addition to all the other good suggestions you have been given, I have a few additional ideas which might help. Ask yourself a few questions: what is it that annoys you-is it what they are saying or is it their tones or is it their attitude or is it because it interrupts your peace and quiet? It is important for you to define exactly what is stressing you in this situation. Once you have determined an answer, then seek out counsel to find solutions-perhaps it's something you can do something about, perhaps it's something you have no control over. Whatever the answer, I find this Serenity Prayer very helpful: Thank you for the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference." Good luck to you on your quest for peace and understanding.

Dave’s Answer

There are a few things that I do to distress. Sometimes just taking a walk in the park or listening to soft classical music helps me take my mind off things. Breathing exercises when you can't get away helps calm your body down.

PwC’s Answer

If you are stressed, get off your phone! Phones cause a lot of stress, so go outside and go for a run. Trust me, it's worth it.
