Believe it or not, mid-semester is here, and that means even more work and increased stress in the life of a student. Excessive stress makes it harder to enjoy your time as a college student and increases chances of getting sick. But there are a few simple things you can do to help, including increasing physical activity, eating healthy, getting adequate sleep, and reducing drug and alcohol use. A huge cause of stress in college students is poor time management, so don't procrastinate on projects! Start today, and give yourself time for sleep and breaks for enjoyable activities.

For more information on how to manage stress in a healthy way, visit the Center for Health Promotion website at
