Hey there! First of all, congrats on being proactive about managing stress during the college admissions process. It's definitely a challenging time, but it's great that you're reaching out for advice. One tip that worked well for my child was to create a detailed timeline and checklist. This helped them to stay organized and keep track of deadlines, which can be a huge stress relief. Break down the process into smaller tasks, like researching schools, gathering recommendation letters, and writing essays, and set deadlines for completing each task. You can use a physical planner or an app to keep everything in one place. Another important thing is to maintain a balance between school, college preparation, and leisure activities. Make sure you're taking care of yourself by eating well, getting enough sleep, and engaging in stress-relieving activities, like exercise or spending time with friends. Don't hesitate to talk to your school counselor or someone you trust if you're feeling overwhelmed. They can provide valuable advice and support. And finally, remember that the college admissions process is just one chapter in your life. You'll get through it and find the right path for you. Best of luck!
