Feeling overwhelmed by finals? Active Minds at Wesleyan, an organization dedicated to educating students about mental health, has some tips to help you stay relaxed…
Exercise. Physical activity helps your body and mind. Go to the gym. Take a jog. Go for a walk. Do yoga. Play Frisbee. Just get moving!
Eat a balanced diet. Don’t skip meals. Try to eat from all of the food groups and try to stay away from caffeine (minimize soda or coffee). Caffeine can trigger anxiety and panic attacks.
Limit alcohol and stay away from illegal drugs. Alcohol and drugs aggravate anxiety and can also cause panic attacks.
Do your BEST instead of trying to be PERFECT. We all know perfection isn’t possible, so be proud of however close you get.
Take a time out. Take a deep breath and count to 10. Stepping back from the problem lets you clear your head. Do yoga. Hug a friend. Meditate. Get a massage. Learn relaxation techniques. Listen to music.
