How to help a friend: Managing stress

By Mifa Kim, senior, peer educator with Counseling and Psychological Services

November is an especially busy month for CU students - deadlines, assignments, exams and projects seem to occur at the same time. During this time, we all can get overwhelmed because of school, work and our social life. Try to remind your friend that in order to be the most productive person and student they can be, their first priority is to take care of themselves and manage their stress. Good healthy stress is important to have because it motivates us to get things done and gives us a burst of energy. Bad stress can reinforce itself to make us less productive or lessen the quality of our work.
