How to beat stress

Answered on August 19, 2014

So I'm a college student going and this time of the year is extremely stressful for me with all the research papers due and exams coming up. Because of this, I am extremely stressed out. So much so, that it is incredibly difficult for me to get to sleep at night becauseI am so wired. I know that stress isn't good for you but it seems unavoidable at this time of the year. Forgive me if this question has already been asked, I didn't see an answer in the most recent college question that was relatable to me, but does anyone have good tips on how to beat stress?

I use an app from Tesla Audio. After listening to a "relaxation" beat for 30 minutes or more, I feel like I've taken a percoset. I mean that in a good way!

ha ha, I use binaual beats to get me to sleep! Upvote! You can also use it to activate, energize or meditate and it plays under your music.

I haven't heard of the binaural beats. I'll check them out, provided I'm not too lazy.

Got an iPhone, or iPod Touch? Download a binaural beats app. Works wonders.

Practice meditation. I'm serious. Look up Jon Kabat Zinn. Life is change, the only constant is your breath.

College is extremely stressful, but please do find ways to relax. Hitting the gym is an excellent way to do this too. You need to stay healthy to study hard!

I am right here with you.

Stress is also eating me alive!

I find the best things to do is get outside in the sun as much as I can, and also force myself specific times in the day to not think about my worries, but to just relax. For example, in the shower I just put music on, and force myself not to think about tests or papers due.

Another thing, which might seem kinda silly, but at the same time everyday I take a extra deep breath. There is a clock tower on my campus that I always hear go off at 4:30, and whenever I hear it, I stop and take a deep breath. Maybe you could find a daily cue like that!

We can do this!
