The concept of this material is to acknowledge positive traits that help improve stress management, while making good use of time. A student who can use skills to alleviate stress and manage their time will prosper in the long run. The main strategies I have focused on are; staying relaxed and maintaining a balanced diet with a good sleep routine, establishing goals, and the A.B.C. Value Rating by George Washington University (GWU). Hopefully, utilizing these strategies will result in a stress-free, healthier life.
One of the most prominent ways to relieve stress is to relax and meditate. In the text of George Washington University, taking ten to fifteen minute breaks to ease your brain is a great way to recoup. While taking a breather, it is a good idea to get your blood flowing; you can do this with a light stretch. In the same document, GWU explains that good sleep along with a balanced diet will keep you mentally alert. By using the tools from the “Improving Time Management” document from George Washington University, students can reduce stressful situations. The best way to plan for the future is simple: have a plan, prioritize, and execute. It is much easier to focus on what needs to be done when you have an idea of where you want to be. The A.B.C Value Rating by GWU is based on making goals to achieve what you want. Goals can be short term or long term and are meant to be reachable, but not “easy”. Creating challenging goals for yourself can be a way of determining your future.
