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.
