  3. 3. www.helpingpsychology.com Many college students describe themselves as too stressed, and sometimes this kind of anxiety can even wreak havoc on their bodies as they struggle to manage their many responsibilities. When addressing these problems, many students self-medicate, cut out activities they truly enjoy, or neglect their studies.
  4. 4. www.helpingpsychology.com Meditation is a pathway to academic success, one that many college students know little to nothing about.
