Slow down for a second and relax


CordUnsignedIf you’re a typical university student — unless you’re reading this on campus during the summer months, otherwise you’re not — you’ve probably gone home for the summer, picked up a part-time job that gives you minimal hours a week and mostly sat around and have done nothing.

But don’t worry, that’s okay. Although we would encourage some form of activity.

While almost 90 per cent of students will be stressing out for most of the school year, make sure you actually take the time to relax this summer. Get out and do something. Be active. Read a book. Even if you’re one of the few that’s working full-time, put some time aside for yourself.

With unemployment statistics increasing for young people and more discussion about the valuableness of a university degree, students have a lot to think and stress about, and that can sometimes hit during the summer months, or all year if you think about it.

Relax. You don’t have to figure out everything at once. So for the sake of your own sanity and well-being, please, take some time for yourself to recuperate. You’ll only thank yourself once September comes.

Once September hits though, get back to work. Seriously.
