End of Year Stress Management
As the end of another academic year approaches, it is important to be mindful of the added stress that scholastic, employment-oriented, and transition-related pressures place on every member of our campus community.
Even when ultimately positive and growth-oriented, life transitions – such as those that occur at the end of an academic year – are often stressful. Feeling emotional or unmotivated can be related to the anticipation of a major change, and as such, you may find it more difficult to cope with other life issues during this time. Help put things in perspective by reminding yourself that you are in a transition period and that it is a naturally stressful time. Reflect upon important experiences and what you have learned about yourself that will benefit you in the future. It may also be helpful to reflect upon how you have successfully coped with and adjusted to previous life transitions.
If you are experiencing ongoing anxiety related to finals or graduation, the DU Health and Counseling Center’s Counseling Services may be able to help.
