College can be one of the most monumental changes we can make in life. And with this new change can come LOTs of stress…following a new schedule, final exams, balancing classes, homework,social life and often a job, living on a tight budget, pressure to get good grades, trying to get enough sleep and eat right…the potential stressors are also abundant when we multi-task…with balancing family responsibilities and friend responsibilities with college responsibilities.

Considering all of this, how can college students not be highly stressed out?  Believe me…I have great compassion for you and can identify with these stressors.  I would like offer some tried and true tips to help you de-stress.
