College can be an amazing time in your life. Typically college is full of discovery, learning, pushing boundaries, and finding out who you really are. 

However, college can also be a time where stress and anxiety become extreme. With the pressure of college classes, meeting new friends, and being in a rigorous learning environment, it can become challenging to work through and manage your stress and anxiety. 

Here are a few different ways you can manage and work through stress and anxiety in college. 

Evaluate Expectations 

If you are experiencing significant stress, take a look at the expectations that you have placed on yourself. Are you taking a realistic load of classes? Are you expecting perfection from the work you are doing? 

Many times, we expect perfection from ourselves. This quest for perfection can cause many different mental health struggles. Form realistic expectations, and remind yourself that it is okay not to be perfect. Enjoy your time in college. 

Use Available Resources 

If you are struggling in certain classes, reach out for help. Ask your professor what types of resources are available. Most colleges and universities have tutoring centers for students who need additional help with their coursework. 

In addition, colleges and universities offer counseling services for their students because mental health challenges can affect every area of life. Reach out for support and begin your journey towards healing and success. You do not need to struggle alone.

Connect With Peers

Connecting with classmates can be very helpful if you are experiencing stress and anxiety. You will realize very quickly that other people are feeling the same way you are. It can be comforting to know you are not alone. You can connect with your peers and work through anxiety and stress together. 

Know When to Ask For Help

Ask for help when you need it. Whether you ask professors or mental health professionals, many people are ready and willing to help and support your healing.
