Stressed!?!

Posted by in Articles, Scott Sweet

You betcha!  ‘Tis the season and particularly for college students!  So, a part of this care package is some quick exercises to support your wellness!

 Don’t have time to put on the sneakers and hit the gym?   I encourage you to try breathing and meditation!

 It can be a quick exercise to help center oneself back to a place of serenity when feeling overwhelmed.

I encourage you to try the Breathing Exercise and Guided Meditation listed below to support your intention to do well in your classes with a calm and creative brain.  These sites and links are available at your College website @ Second.  Use the QR code at the right for the link.

Shortly after graduating from college, I was introduced to these practice(s) and found it to be supportive in my life and relationships.  I have also found counseling to be supportive as well and now that is what I do for a living.  Should you ever want to talk to someone during the Holidays to learn about various ways to manage stress and your life filled relationships, please feel free to give me a call.  CenterPoint Counseling can be there for you to help you navigate the trials and tribulations of life.

Peace to you during stressful times,
