3 surefire tips for managing stress as a first-year college student
1-Get Organized! A lack of organization may lead to an overwhelming level of stress. Utilize online scheduler or a calendar to get organized. It will help you reduce your levels of stress and help you stay on task!
2-Live A Healthy Lifestyle! How you treat your body can contribute to your stress level, one way or another. Get enough sleep at night, eat your fruits and vegetables, and workout periodically. The mind and body are closely connected, so be sure to not disregard the body when dealing with the stress of the mind.
3- Cut Back and Make Time for Fun! Sometimes, no matter how good you are at time management and no matter how organized and healthy you are, you’ll still deal with unhealthy stress. We’re only human. So if you can’t do it all, then don’t. Find a balance between academics and your social life, but be sure to make time for fun!

Get into plank position with your forearms on the ground. Your elbows should be directly beneath your shoulders and your hands locked together.
