Hi there! I can totally understand the stress that comes with the college application process. My child went through it not too long ago, so I have a few tips that might help you manage your stress. First, try to break down the tasks into smaller, more manageable steps. Instead of looking at the process as one big task, tackle it piece by piece. Second, it's important to maintain a balance between school, extracurricular activities, and personal life. Make sure to schedule some downtime to relax and recharge. Third, don't be afraid to ask for help. Reach out to your teachers, counselors, or even friends who have gone through the process before. They might have some valuable insights or tips to share. Finally, practice stress-reduction techniques like deep breathing exercises, mindfulness meditation, or even just taking a walk to clear your head. Remember that it's normal to feel overwhelmed at times, but try to keep a positive attitude and remind yourself that you'll get through it. Good luck with your college application journey!
