Take a Break (from Stress)

Teenage me would be so disappointed. I thought I’d have solutions for my stress issues by now. I’ve written about how Uni stress gets to me; normally I just keep on with things. When it gets so bad that I can’t sleep, I start to think that maybe I should get some proper help. However, it slips down my priority list as soon as I have some sleep.

Fortunately, Counselling Support is stepping in to give me (and you) a helping hand, with FREE de-stressing sessions every Tuesday from 1-1:50pm. The sessions started on April 24th (week 7), with the final session on June 10th (smack bang in the middle of swot vac). They’ll be  held in the Student Services Seminar Room on level 6 of the Hughes Building, and while attendance to all eight is encouraged, it isn’t required.

If this sounds like something that you might benefit from, call the Counselling Support Reception on 8313 5663 for more information and to book in.

Census date is behind us and we’re with this semester until the bitter end. If you’re like me and have a history of not taking your own stress seriously, here’s an easy (and free) way to make a change.
