Emotions run high this time of year. Pile on the excitement of Christmas and the stress of finals and moving back home, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. With a little planning, you can use this break to come back ready for a successful semester.
Stress can take many forms. Learning to recognize it and develop coping measures will not only benefit you in college, but throughout your career as well.
You can’t focus, learn, or produce good work if you aren’t giving yourself time to recharge every day.
Learning to deal with conflict is a skill you’ll use your entire life.
A lot of life’s drama is self-imposed. By avoiding it from the beginning, your first years in college can be the start of a lifetime of celebrating the things that make you uniquely you.
We must be careful letting our successes define our value as a person. If a project goes bad or you get passed over for a promotion, these things shouldn’t cause your value as a person to tank.
