Keep Your Stress Levels Down
College can be fun but also very stressful. Make sure you’re doing activities that lower your stress levels. Do a yoga video, meditate, exercise or get a massage- you don’t want to over work yourself because that will lead to you doing even worse in your classes.

It’s better to do well and take fewer classes than stress yourself out and end up failing a class. A full time load is four classes so your first year, while you’re adjusting, take four to five classes and get a feel for how much work your classes will expect of you.

You may be able to slack off more than in high school but unless you’re the type of person that always does all the reading and can teach yourself out of a textbook, you should go to class.

The college diet usually consisted of Top-o-ramen and microwavable popcorn and we’re all on a budget in College but make sure you’re still getting a balanced diet. Make sure you’re getting your nutrients and vitamins whether you have to buy your own food or make healthy decisions at the cafeteria and fight off that Freshman 15.
