The Effects of Stress & Implementing Self-Care

Stress is a natural reaction to our life experiences. As humans, we are susceptible to everyday responsibilities that can cause stress from time to time. More serious life experiences such as a new diagnosis, death, moving, etc. can also cause us stress.

It is important to go into college with an open mind. Research your areas of interest. There is always time in college where you can change your major. You do not have to follow a traditional path. There are so many students that take more than four years to finish and take time off also.
