How To Decrease Back To College Anxiety: Just Breathe

How are you managing back to school stress?

Sometimes, its doing something as simple as hitting the pause button, and taking a few deep breaths to hit "reset" on our minds.

We invite you to join us starting on Tuesday for our SKY Schools Daily Reset in our Instagram (@skyschoolsusa) and Facebook stories for a quick self check in!

#JustBreathe

With college students returning to campuses with worsening mental health and not enough counselors to see them, alternative solutions are needed for support. One possible solution is a comprehensive program which includes deep breathing, at least according to two new promising studies.

Listen to our Executive Director Elan Gepner-Dales on Inspired Empowerment from International Association for Human Values.

He shares his acknowledgement of his privilege and when he realized he needed to use it to help make a positive impact as well as when he had a shift in his mindset to wanting to be of service to others. He also talks about how meditation has allowed him to show up at 100% effort as calm and happy even in high stress situations.

Do you wanna feel close to nature?
Well, there's nothing much to do. Sit somewhere peaceful, close your eyes, and "do nothing".
Let your thoughts come and go, just be an observer of your thoughts.
And, don't forget to put a smile on your face. 😊
