Allow other people to make life a bit easier. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.

Treat your body with respect and compassion. (Eat well; get some sleep!)

Accentuate the positive. It’s fine to acknowledge doubts, but always keep an image of success in your head. This focus can help bring out your best when needed most.

These are just a few of the tips listed on the “Healthy Ways to Handle Stress” page from University Health Services. Given that this is often a stressful time of the year for students and staff, UHS offers a variety of counseling opportunities and support services. Take a look at the links available from the Live Well pages. Additionally, you may find the Relaxation Exercises (MP3 audio) helpful.

Wishing you all the best for a successful end of term!
