Any tips for managing stress during the college application process?

Hey there! I completely understand how stressful the college application process can be. My child went through it not too long ago, so I have some suggestions that might help you out. First, create a schedule that outlines all the important dates and deadlines for your applications, including submission dates, test dates, and any scholarship or financial aid deadlines. This will help you keep track of everything and ensure you don't miss anything important. Next, break down the tasks into smaller, manageable chunks. For example, instead of trying to do an entire application in one sitting, work on one section at a time, like the personal essay one day, and the activities section another day. Make sure to give yourself enough time for revisions and proofreading. Don't forget to take breaks and practice self-care during this process. Exercise, meditation, and spending time with friends and family can help alleviate stress. Finally, reach out to your school counselor or a trusted adult if you need guidance or support. Remember that you're not alone in this process, and there are people who want to help you succeed. Good luck!
