Student Well Being Team:
Stress Buster Message: Positive Thinking
Think forward! Sometimes when we’re stressed, it can help to remind ourselves that the stressful situation will come to an end eventually. We do this by imagining a future scene when things look and feel different, or by making a motto and repeating it to ourselves until we get through the stressful situation. For example, we might say ‘I got this’ or other light hearted mantras before a school exam. It works for bigger problems too. Be truthful and realistic, and say positive things like ‘I’m going to do really well this year in school. I can improve my math mark’.

Stress Buster: Finding Support
Reach Out! Humans are hardwired to give and get social support. Social support can have a physiological impact that makes us feel better right away. Share stuff about your life with close friends who know how to listen in a caring and non-judgmental way. (And be a good listener for them too.) Or find someone else you can connect with—— a trusted family member or other trusted adult. Connecting is good for you.

Stress Buster for today: Breathing
Just Breathe! It sounds obvious but breathing is really good for us, especially when we are in the throes of a stressful experience. Slow, deep breathing, in particular lowers our heart rate and blood pressure, and helps us feel calmer and more focused. Relaxation breathing techniques are easy to learn and can be done almost anywhere or anytime you’re feeling stressed. Check out the Student Well-being Team’s message board (outside room 87) for some easy breathing techniques!

Stress Busters:
Self Care Basics. Take Care of Yourself! At a minimum, cover the basics: get enough sleep, eat nutritious food, enjoy physical activity, make time for stuff you really enjoy doing. All of these things will make you feel good and if you feel good you are better at handling stuff you don’t enjoy.
Activity. Move it! Feeling stressed? Get up and move! Research has demonstrated what we all instinctively know—regular activity is essential for good mental and physical health. It releases feel-good chemicals like serotonin, in the brain and body.
FREE Upcoming Workshop on STRESS! Jan 11th (lunch time in library conference room 111)
