b'For some students, writing about their issues helps.Talk to your student about this and ask him/her how s/he might use writing or journaling as a strategy in managing the stress or other negative emotions. - Alyse Knorr, English TA, Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing, George Mason UniversityOur students sometimes need our support in making choices about what not to do, or about what to stop doing.Living a life in balance is possible as students learn to prioritize their involvements and commitments, to better align how they spend their time with their personal values and life goals.And it never hurts to remind them that no one can do ALL things, with 100% effort, 100% of the time! - Virginia Ambler, Ph.D., Vice President for Student Affairs, William & MaryWhen students perceive that a situation, event, or problem exceeds their resources or abilities, their body reacts automatically with the fight or flight response. If this response persists over time or results from a sudden significant change, it can lead to imbalance and health problems such as heart palpitations, insomnia, eating disorders, fatigue, panic disorders and feelings of hopelessness or depression.
