Do you feel stressed-out or exhausted? You’re not alone!

Elaine believes in the power of maintaining a balanced, healthy lifestyle will help students succeed in college. Your health is the most vital component of your success. You can’t take it for granted, because it will catch up with you. It requires that you be committed to taking care of yourself: mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually.

When caught in the balancing act of juggling all the demands of college, check in with yourself to make sure you’re prioritizing these things to keep you healthy.

After a while, college life catches up with you. Here are five tips from Elaine Penn that will help you combat stress:

1. Take five minutes of quiet time for you each day – breathe!

2. Cook a healthy meal

3. Talk it out with someone you trust

4. Go for a walk—exercise

5. Play more. Build a snowman!

And it’s as simple as that.
