Tips for Beating Stress...


1. Sleeping Habits
A cood nights sleep allows you to tackle daily stress easier. Being tired can contribute to agitation and impatientness, which can contribute to stress. Most adults need 7-8 hours of sleep per night. Practicing good sleep hygiene along with stress-lowering tactics can help improve your quality of sleep.

4. Delegate Tasks
Often, having too many responsibilities can lead to stress. Free up time and decrease stress by delegating responsibilities. Take breaks and devote a couple hours of each day toward yourself.

What is Stress?
According to the American Institute of Stress, stress is dened as the non-specic response of the body to any demand for change.

2. Eating Habits
Junk food and rened sugars low in nutritional value and high in calories can leave us feeling out of energy and sluggish. A healthy diet, low in sugar, caffeine, and alcohol consumption, can promote health and reduce stress.

5. Ask For Help


Spending time with family and friends is an important buffer against stress. It can be helpful to share your problems with people who care for you. There are many available resources on campus as well. See below for details on how to seek help for coping with stress.
