Finals Week got you down? Here are some stress busters from ActiveMinds.org to help you back on your A-game!
- Exercise: Physical activity helps your body and mind. Go to the gym. Take a jog. Go for a walk. Do yoga. Play Frisbee. Just get moving!
- Eat a balanced diet: Don’t skip meals. Try to eat from all of the food groups and try to stay away from caffeine (minimize soda or coffee). Caffeine can trigger anxiety and panic attacks.
- Limit alcohol and stay away from illegal drugs: Alcohol and drugs aggravate anxiety and can also cause panic attacks.
