Find Your Balance

Find Your Balance logoCollege can be amazing but it can also be overwhelming. If you are simultaneously trying to manage studying, relationships, staying healthy and being on your own, it's normal to feel stressed and exhausted. But it is also a great opportunity to develop the habits and life skills that will maximize your energy and learning, and help you get the most out of college - and beyond! Life works better when everying's in sync.

NOW IS THE TIME TO FIND YOUR BALANCE. HERE ARE A FEW TIPS:

SAVE

Did you know that financial worries not only distract you from your studies but can interfere with your emotional stability as well? So learn to live debt-free,
lighten up on the credit cards and find your balance.

 

ACCEPT

Did you know that asking for and accepting help when you need it is a sign of emotional strength?

Whether it’s guidance from a professional, meeting with a peer group, or having a heart-to-heart with a good friend, sharing your burden is the first step to letting it go.

So lighten your load and find your balance.

 

LAUGH

Did you know laughter delivers real health benefits? Or that laughing hard several times a day, every day, can work to fortify your body, mind and spirit?

 

PLAY

Did you know that fun is fundamental for a life worth living?

 

MOVE

Did you know that regular exercise – and this can mean everything from playing a sport, working out or going for a walk – can help make you happier, healthier and smarter (and better looking)?

 

RELAX

Did you know that letting go of stress can be as simple as taking a 10-minute vacation in your head?  With practice, you can switch the pressure off and give yourself, your body and your spirit a break. There are things you can do, though, to Find Your Balance.

 

EAT

Did you know that eating right can actually make you sharper, smarter and more attractive? So put some good eating to work and find your balance.

 

SLEEP

Did you know that a full night's sleep before an exam will help you perform better than cramming all night? So let yourself catch a few extra zzz's.

 

BREATHE

Did you know that deep breathing - just a few times a day - can help focus your mind, calm your nerves and even make you better company? So lean back, and take in some fresh air.

 

PAUSE

Did you know that getting away from it all - even if it's only for 20 minutes - can acutally help you learn better, retain more and increase your productivity? So stop the multi-talking for a minute and find your balance.
