Good morning all,
With finals week right around the corner, there is one sensation that we will all share in common these next few weeks: stress, and a lot of it! Many think of stress as a bad thing, but it doesn’t have to be. Below are some helpful videos on how to manage stress. Hopefully this helps relieve any fears or anxieties that finals week brings out! Make sure to take some time to focus on mental health because your sanity is just as important as the grade! And remember, the SMART Lab is available to any and all students who are in need of stress counseling.
This is a short, BBC cartoon video that gives tips on keeping your cool when you feel stressed.
This TED Talk with Kelly McGonigal, a health psychologist at Stanford, takes an optimistic approach on the views of stress and stress management. I really encourage this video to everyone, especially those who find themselves stressed about getting stressed!
