So Busy!

It's post-midterms and things are really starting to get busy around the U of M. There's this project and that project, this exam and that paper, and it can be a lot as we get closer and closer to the end of the semester. The work can add up and it's important that we don't let it get the best of us!
There are so many ways to manage all these to-dos and the stress that comes with them. Boynton Health Service hosts a Cirque De-Stress event focused on giving students a break from the stress of the semester and an opportunity to have some fun. It's a free event at Coffman Memorial Union that features aerialists, high-wire walkers, clowns, jugglers, and more. It's a great way to get away from the stress for a little while!

Other ways to manage stress include an efficient use of time and helping your mind get away from it all. I've found that a great way is to get together with classmates to work on projects. They understand the stress because they are going through it too, and it can help make getting all the work done a little more manageable and pleasant.

The most important thing to remember through this stressful time of the semester is that it will end, we will survive and make it to winter break, and you can do it!
