Finding your happy place 

Alan Behrman, psychologist at the Anxiety & Stress Management Institute in Marietta

"Get on the same page as your roommate. This will eliminate many areas of stress. Figure out times that are study time, socialization time, your sleeping habits and class times. There needs to be a balance. Time management is another big thing that will decrease stress. I'm a big believer of grabbing 'At-a-Glance' monthly calendars. At the very beginning of school, you can go through and put in classes and tests. A lot of times, people don't realize how much free time they have and then tons of time gets wasted. Come up with a pretty set schedule of what you're going to do on a day-to-day basis and a month-to-month basis. But make sure you're not scheduled for something all the time though. When you're stressed, exercise.

Get that extra run in and have playtime. Get involved in campus activities too. People get so caught up in class work or, if they're an athlete, going to practice, but do things that you choose to get into. Also, there are always hidden places on campus or around town where you can go and escape to when things get really tough. Find those places, those nooks and crannies, to just be by yourself."
