Healthy Buffs: How to move past stress

first_imgIt’s official: syllabus week is over. Now what? As we approach mid-semester, you may begin to feel the stresses of an increased workload and added responsibilities outside of school. Here are some tips to help you move past the stress.Give yourself a reality checkWhat things in your life feel overwhelming? Write out a list of everything on your mind. This could include things like upcoming tests, projects, job stress or relationship issues.Listing your stressors out on paper will allow you to be more mindful about what is truly causing you to feel overwhelmed. It’s also okay to take a deep breath, step away and come back to your list at a later time. Being mindful doesn’t always bring a sense of calm or bliss – it can actually be quite uncomfortable. In the end, though, it’s important to be present and understand all the things that are going on in your life that may be causing unneeded stress in order to move forward.  Be honest about how your list makes you feel (anxious, tired, excited, etc.). Acknowledge those feelings and remind yourself that they are temporary. Ask yourself why these things make you feel that way. For instance, if the most stressful item on your list is an assignment, ask yourself why. Maybe it feels like there’s too much to do and not enough time to do it, maybe you’re feeling stuck or are confused about the directions. Once you’ve determined the causes of stress for the items on your list, start breaking them down into smaller tasks to tackle. It could be as simple as going to your professor’s office hours, doing a half hour of research or writing an intro paragraph.Prioritize your needsWhen we feel overwhelmed, even simple things can take a hit. Check in with yourself using HALT: are we Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired? If you answer yes to any of those, take care of those needs first.Imagine you’re feeling hungry, but you decide to put off eating in order to study longer. In the long run, this will likely cause more stress. You’ll get hungrier, and the last stretch of work may become unbearable or you’ll start to lose focus. If you’re tired, your priority should be getting some rest even if it means that you’re not able to finish an assignment until tomorrow. Pushing ourselves to the limits and ignoring our basic needs is a quick way to experience burnout, which could slow us down even more. Taking care of yourself will not only help you, but it will also empower you to accomplish the other items on your list. Do the next right thingSam Randall, program manager at the CU Collegiate Recovery Center (CUCRC), understands that when things pile up it can leave us feeling at a loss. If you’re looking at your list, your mind is racing or you’re feeling overwhelmed, Sam suggests focusing on the “next right thing”.This means focusing on the next simple step that is going to move us forward. Sometimes that means dealing with your basic needs (HALT); other times it means tackling one of the items on your list.If the next right thing feels too hard to pin down, check in with yourself again. What feels the most overwhelming? Can you break it down into pieces? Can you tackle a small piece of it right now? Most importantly, have you done a HALT check-in and taken care of your basic needs?Repeating this check-in process any time you’re feeling overwhelmed can help you identify the next right thing.Get supportEveryone goes through periods of stress.

In recent years, we have seen some of the most significant deals, and the Indian health-tech sector has received close to $1.6 billion in funding since 2017. There is a huge opportunity for growth within health-tech because of the meagre market share in the broader healthcare sector. The most crucial factors driving the growth currently are COVID-induced restrictions and safety protocols, and the acceptance of technology in the industry. As the industry is looking to grow at a phenomenal rate, the investors are ready to invest in this sunshine sector.” By EH News Bureau on May 24, 2021 Read Article Comments (0) Menopause to become the next game-changer in global femtech solutions industry by 2025last_img read more

HYDERABAD, India (CMC) – Stroke-maker Roston Chase stood on the brink of his fourth Test hundred after producing a gallant effort to lift West Indies out of trouble against India on the opening day of the second and final Test here yesterday.The 26-year-old right-hander was unbeaten on 98 at the close as West Indies recovered from 113 for five inside the first hour after lunch, to end on a respectable 295 for seven.Chase was aided by returning captain Jason Holder who struck a polished 52 while Shai Hope gathered 36, Shane Dowrich 30 and left-handed opener Kieran Powell 22.Left-arm spinner Kuldeep Yadav, who triggered the post-lunch slide, has taken three for 74 while seamer Umesh Yadav, who struck twice in the final session to stymie the Windies progress, has claimed three for 83.Seeking to turn the page on their embarrassing three-day defeat in the opening Test in Rajkot last week, West Indies conjured up a steady start, after choosing to bat first at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium.Powell, who faced 30 balls and struck four boundaries, put on 32 for the first wicket with vice-captain Kraigg Brathwaite who made 14.But with the session drifting towards the end of the first hour, Powell’s attacking approach cost him dearly, as he tried to lift off-spinner Ravi Ashwin over the top but managed only to pick out Ravi Jadeja at cover.Brathwaite followed with the score on 52, missing a forward defensive prod at Kuldeep and falling lbw, with the subsequent ill-advised review showing the ball hitting middle and off-stump.Hope and Shimron Hetmyer (12) then tried to repair the innings in a 34-run, third-wicket stand, which seemed to be taking the Windies safely to lunch.The right-handed Hope had faced 68 balls and counted five attractive fours when he fell in the final over before the interval, lbw to Umesh Yadav trying to turn one onto the leg-side.Kuldeep then threatened to derail the Windies innings when he struck twice in the first half-hour following the resumption.Hetmyer, unbeaten on 10 at the break, added just two before falling lbw in the third over after the interval, shouldering arms to one that spun back.Sunil Ambris followed four overs later for 18, caught at short over by Jadeja off a leading edge as he attempted a booming on-side drive.With the wheels all but threatening to fall off, Chase stood tall, anchoring two critical stands to pull West Indies around and frustrate the Indians.First, he put on 69 for the sixth wicket with wicketkeeper Dowrich who faced 63 balls and struck four fours and one six – a clean hit over long on off left-arm spinner Jadeja.Chase, one of two Windies batsmen with a half-century in the opening Test, once again looked in good nick and raised his seventh Test half-century with a single to long leg off Umesh just before tea.All told, he has faced 174 deliveries and struck seven fours and a six.He lost Dowrich about 20 minutes before tea, however, the right-hander playing across a straight-ish delivery from Umesh in the first over of a new spell, and adjudged lbw on review.On 197 for six at tea with Chase on exactly 50, the Windies consolidated afterwards as Holder joined his fellow Barbadian to post an enterprising 104 for the seventh wicket.Utilising a positive approach, Holder stroked six fours – mostly well-timed off-side drives – in an innings requiring 92 balls and which forced India onto the backfoot.But with the close approaching, Windies suffered a major setback when Holder perished, brushing a pull at a short ball from Umesh, for wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant to take a nimble leg-side catch.last_img read more
