Last semester, seniors worried about completing college applications. This semester, college apps are finally done, and an entirely new type of stress has commenced: the stress over acceptances. Many students have not received a college acceptance letter yet, and waiting to receive one can be tense. As the tension builds, there are fortunately some ways that students can put their minds at ease.

#1: Turn the volume up

Listening to music helps people get their minds off things in general. Music helps people relax, which is a reason why people might listen to music while driving or working out. Bumping your favorite artists and songs can help ease your mind in times like these. Writing or playing music can also relax students.

#2: Sweat it out

Students can relieve themselves of stress by working out. Good health makes you feel better about yourself. If students can release irritation by running laps or lifting weights, they can clear their minds of whatever is bothering them. Working out can be a lot more convenient than it seems, and it doesn’t have to be exclusively at the gym! A simple hike can make all the difference — and it’s free.

#3: Kick back with friends

Hanging out with friends is a great way to forget the stress over college acceptances. Other friends may also be worried about college acceptances, so going on adventures with each other can benefit the whole group. The beach or a park are fun and free places to hang out. Spending time with friends can be very therapeutic and relaxing for everyone.
