Hello! I understand how stressful the college application process can be. My child went through it not too long ago, and we found a few strategies that helped manage the stress. First, make a schedule and plan ahead. Break down the tasks you need to complete, such as researching colleges, writing essays, and requesting recommendation letters. Set deadlines for yourself so that you're not overwhelmed with everything at once. Next, stay organized. Create a folder or document to keep track of important dates, requirements, and other information about each college you're interested in. This will help you stay on top of everything and reduce the chances of missing something crucial. Don't hesitate to talk to your school counselor, teachers, and peers about your concerns. They can provide valuable advice and support. Finally, make time for self-care. Set aside time to engage in activities that help you relax and unwind, such as exercise, meditation, or spending time with friends and family. Remember, it's essential to maintain a balance between schoolwork, college applications, and your well-being. Best of luck!
