Stress Management Techniques for Students to Practice at Home

1)  Sleep – try to keep a daily routine which allows you to go to sleep at the same time each night; aim to get at least 8 hours of sleep each night. Remember to stop using any type of screen at least 30 minutes before bedtime.

2)  Deep Breathing: Visualizing your deep breaths: Try deep breathing through your nose while visualizing breathing in a “soothing” color (i.e., green), and breathing out through your nose a gray color. The idea is to replace all “gray” color from inside all the inside of your body by breathing it out slowly, and by breathing in each cleansing breath until the green replaces all the gray.

3)  Exercise: if you have no place to go (if you can’t leave your home for a quick walk outside), you can still try the following:

  1.       Stretches (try to reach the ceiling with the tip of your fingers; while seated, bend over to stretch your back by touching the floor with your fingertips.
  2.       Jumping jacks
  3.       Wall push-ups

4)  Music: There are many benefits to listening to music. Using it as a break from homework or as a reward for completing an assignment can be relaxing and motivating.

5)  Staying Organized: keep all your school materials (backpack, books) in one place, so you may easily move away from it for a break, and return to it when you are ready to continue working.

6)  Eating healthy: drinking water instead of soda or juice, choosing to eat a fruit instead of a bag of chips, are examples of healthy choices whenever possible. Not skipping meals will prevent feeling tired or getting headaches.

7)  Thinking positively: every difficult situation may offer a positive perspective: “Flip the coin” to the other side and try to find one or two things that are positive that may result from a difficult experience.
