As a college student, you have a lot to do with being an actual “good student”. There are always different things going on when you are off at school. It’s hard to balance classes and social life. It’s difficult to actually be happy and not be stressed all the time. I have a list of legal things you can do to actually release some stress and bring some more happiness into your college life.
1. Sleep – It’s good to sleep. My freshman year, I used to stay up to 4 in the morning and had class at 8:30. That was the worst thing I could ever do. I would end up being grumpy the whole day. I started my day off wrong, so my whole day was pretty much terrible.
2. Make good/positive friends – You should always surround yourself with positive people. If you surround yourself with negative people then everything you do will be negative. Positive people put positive thoughts in your head. Because at the end of the day you are what you you think. If you think negative thoughts, then that will result in negative actions.
3. Go out and enjoy yourself – Don’t stay in your dorm room all the time. Go out and do something. You could go to different parties or actually do different activities done on campus. Sometimes you have to take a break from all the studying and all the homework. It is great sometimes to just get out that academic mindset.
4. Exercise – Personally I love working out. But for people who don’t, it is great to hit the gym every now and then. Go run a mile outside or run on the treadmill. It’s good to break a sweat sometimes. When you look good, you feel good. That will help you be a little more happy.
These are my few examples of releasing some stress from all the work at times. Try it and let me know.
