Alecia’s Answer

Eyes on the prize! You have the finish line in sight.
Think about your next life goals - what job do you want? Work on your LinkedIn. Think about what you'd like to gift yourself when you get that first big job (watch, handbag, jewelry, etc)

Leahanne’s Answer

Kamryn, it's good that you're recognizing the signs of stress building. There are the obvious and tried and true principles to reducing stress - exercise, eating well and getting enough sleep. You should work on those but additionally I would recommend a self-reflection exercise that goes like this: What are my primary goals at this point in my life? What is the underlying fear that's creating the anxiety around those? For example, is it fear that I won't be successful, fear that I won't be self-sufficient? fear that I won't accomplish my goals, fear of what people will say or think? Once you have identified the true fear and (you may have to go down a few levels to actually uncover the true fear), you can begin to take action steps to address that fear. You should also identify what will happen if you don't meet your goal (it really won't be the end of the line), you will always have a plan B. So, identify what that is and write it down as well. Breathe deeply and keep moving.

Leahanne recommends the following next steps:

Identify the goal you're working toward.
Identify the fear that's causing the stress to build up.
Develop action steps to move you through the fear towards the goal.
Address what will happen if you don't meet your goal.
Develop the Plan B.

Hanya’s Answer

In order to prevent burnout, it is extremely important to set time aside for yourself! Taking at least an hour during the work can prove extremely beneficial to you! I would also recommend decluttering your workspace of anything that stresses you out! Another helpful tip is keeping a to-do list of all the things you want to accomplish!

Najah R’s Answer

Meditation is a great way to relax. I am a dancer and drummer. These ancient art forms also assist with my ability to release stress and anxiety. Also, what I want I affirm, it is already done. In other words, I think about what I want to happen not what I don’t want to happen. Everything is energy. Be the best person you can be. Be joyful.

Blessings,
Najah Najiy

Jad’s Answer

I find my most relaxing times are when I take walks in nature around my neighborhood. Exercise, or at the least taking a walk, is a great way to relieve stress.

Furthermore, making sure that you are getting enough sleep and eating right is very important in being proactive in stress management.
