Hey there! I completely understand the stress that comes with the college application process. My child went through it not too long ago, and we learned a few helpful techniques to manage stress. First, it's important to stay organized. Creating a schedule and setting deadlines for each part of the application process can help you manage your time effectively and feel more in control. Second, don't forget to take breaks. It's essential to give yourself time to relax and recharge, whether it's by taking a walk, engaging in a hobby, or spending time with friends. Third, practice self-compassion. Remind yourself that it's okay to feel stressed, and that it's a normal part of the process. Finally, consider seeking support from others, whether it's talking to your family, friends, or a counselor. They can provide valuable guidance and perspective. Remember, you're not alone in this journey! Best of luck with your applications!
