Working out or playing sports relieves stress. You should have incentives after your homework is done: go out, talk with a friend, read for pleasure, have fun. You could try a workshop on stress reduction offered by Psychology Live (Counseling Center).
I work out to relieve stress. Before a test I practice breathing techniques. If I'm still anxious during a test I chew some gum.
I read "Love Is ... " in the Sun Times every day. It makes me smile.
I pray, pray, and pray!
To control stress and remain positive, I call people in my family or my boyfriend. They'll usually talk to me and make me feel comfortable about any situation.
I go to church, participate in positive activities, and surround myself with positive people.
I stay in constant contact with my adviser from AAAN. I also gain support from older students as well as my positive peers.
I play a favorite game or joke around with my friends. A good laugh can help relieve stress.
I study as much as possible until I have an adequate understanding. Then I don't think about my studies while I'm doing other activities.
