Sessions offer strategies to manage exam stress

Wellness groups offered through the Student Counselling Centre will help students manage the stress that can come with exams.

“Exam season can cause a tremendous amount of stress, anxiety, and general feelings of overwhelm for our students,” says group therapy co-ordinator Brianna Valenzuela.

“Symptoms of these uncomfortable feelings can play havoc on our students’ sleep, nutrition, and mental health, making it increasingly difficult to focus on studying.”

Fortunately, she says, skills are available for maintaining wellness during stressful times.

The Exam Stress Management Wellness Groups are offered to all UWindsor students at no cost. One-hour sessions will run in room 240, CAW Student Centre:

  • Monday, Feb. 12, at 11 a.m.
  • Wednesday, Feb. 14, at 10 a.m.
  • Thursday, Feb. 29, at 3 p.m.

In addition to stress management strategies, attendees will leave with a fidget and a nutritional snack.
