5 Ways Students Can Reduce Stress While in College

Stress is one of the main causes of poor academic performance, poor personal and professional relationships, and overall bad health amongst college students. Ignoring stress can lead to more severe problems such as high blood pressure, ulcers, difficulty sleeping, fatigue, headaches, depression, mood swings, forgetfulness, and difficulty concentrating, all of which are detrimental to your academic performance. Sadly, nothing can eliminate all stress completely, but it can certainly be reduced and maintained. There are several ways you can stay healthy and strong while in a stressful situation.

Here are five ways college students and young professionals are using to tackle stress on a daily basis.

1. Exercise

Most colleges give students access to sport complexes, fitness centers while some going to the extent of offering group classes in cycling, yoga, and other forms of exercise. All students should dedicate at least a few hours a week to exercising. Regular exercise will serve one throughout his or her life, regardless whether one is in college or not. Most fitness centers and gyms have flexible hours to accommodate varying work and student schedules.

2. Develop planning and time management skills

Procrastinating until the last minute can lead you to miss assignments deadlines which will cause stress. Having a habit of creating a daily and weekly schedule that includes time for assignments, exercise and social time will solve this problem by assuring that you are never hustling to complete multiple assignments at the same time at the last minute. If possible, do your assignments in advance. When heavily bombarded with multiple assignments, it is better to find assignment doers online to help with some work rather than submit incomplete or poorly done assignments that will affect your grade and cause you more stress.

Make use of classmates who can hold you accountable for your schedule. If you have a roommate, post the schedule on your study desk so that he/she knows when to engage and when to respect your space.

3. Find quiet time to meditate

Taking a break from studies to watch a movie, play video games or engage in social media is a good way to unwind but sometimes these actions crowd your mind and inject stress from others, who don’t have your schedule in mind, into your life. Make a point of including time on your daily schedule for quiet time from these entertainment and social distractions. Meditation will allow you to digest all that you’ve consumed and it will clear your mind for what’s coming next.

4. Maintain a journal

There is power in writing down one’s thoughts, concerns, hopes, aspirations, fears, and deepest thoughts. Some feelings are better kept secret, however, simply keeping them bottled up inside can cause frustration. A journal is more than just writing down a daily account of one’s life, a journal gives one an opportunity to be truly honest with oneself and when read later, offers an opportunity to reflect on how much you’ve grown and increased your resilience to stress over time.

5. Take a break from Social Media

Platforms like Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, and Instagram provide us with entertainment, information, and immediate access to friends. However, they can also monopolize our time at a juncture when we don’t have enough time. Try unplugging from social media for a few hours a day every day and see how it affects your level of stress and academic performance.

There is nothing you can do to guarantee you will not experience stress. Your ability to regulate what stress you allow into your life and the habits that you develop and keep in order to manage that stress will make all the difference.
