KTU psychologist Marija Aušraitė provides 3 simple exercises that can help reduce stress and anxiety.
- Ask yourself “Can I control what is causing anxiety and stress?” If the answer is “Yes,” take action to help solve the problem. If the answer is no, there is no point in worrying.
- Imagine yourself in 5 years. How important and significant is a situation that is now stressful for you?
- Evaluate on a scale from 1 to 10 how much stress current difficulties, such as assignments, cause. Then evaluate how much stress would cause such activities as a quiet walk, slight changes in the lecture schedule, conflict with a best friend, loss of housing, illness of a family member, loss of a loved one. Re-evaluate how stressful the current situation is.
