Hello everyone! It's Week 5! Midterms are coming up... we hope that ya'll having been taking good care of yourselves physically and mentally! As a matter of fact, on the topic of mental health, we have prepared a presentation for ya'll about stress management!
We know that midterms and finals are one of the most stressful weeks for all students. Students are pulling all-nighters to study, forgetting to eat, and stress levels are very high. In our presentation, our very own E-board members suggested some of their ways to cope with stress! Some of the activities included listening to music, walking their dogs, meditating, taking quick naps, or talking to a close friend about their feelings. Everyone has their own way of coping with stress, but we hope that ya'll know that there are many services that the campus provides for everyone if the stress you're having is unbearable. CAPS is one of the great services on campus that you can talk to if need be. Please, reach out to others and the services on campus, we're here for you!
After the presentation, we actually included a little activity as well. We made D.I.Y. stress balls out of rice! This was a nice and fun activity for everyone to make their own stress ball and have around whenever they need it. We hope that ya'll were able to enjoy this activity and our presentation!
