·         Difficulty concentrating
·         Pulling back from friends
·         Getting into arguments

·         Drinking more than you usually do
·         Procrastinating
·         Feeling tense

If you experience these common symptoms of stress, try these links to self-care strategies:

·         Being physically active
·         Eating healthier meals
·         Maintaining good sleep habits
·         Doing deep-breathing
·         Taking a break
·         Talking to a friend

These links provide additional helpful information:

When stress reaches a point that you have trouble managing daily responsibilities, struggle more than usual with academic work, or feel hopeless, it may be time to seek professional help.  The following resources are available on campus:
