How to combat uni related stress
*note: I am not a mental health professional this is just how it has helped me to relax as I suffer from anxiety, it may not work the same way for others.
I’ll be the first to admit that I occasionally experience stress related to university (if I’m being completely honest, it probably happens at least twice a week). Who doesn’t?
If you are one of those people who doesn’t experience this sort of stress; firstly, I’m very jealous, and second, this post might still help you.
Uni related stress can be anything, from worrying over whether you’ll leave home in time to get to campus, get a drink and maybe a snack, and to class without being even a little late, to getting assignments in on time and trying to avoid that three-day period after the deadline which means you’ll still only get a pass even if you’ve done well (argh!).
Fear no more! To help combat these stresses, I’ve compiled a list that will hopefully help lessen their impact on you in the future. (these are listed in no particular order)
Getting to class on time (after getting something from the SU Shop/cafes)
Getting assignments in on time
Lunch (a simple thing, but this can still create stress for some people)
Time for me
