Anxiety is defined as apprehension to an upcoming event and as college students, we have plenty of reasons for having anxiety. Anxiety can stem from an upcoming test, ten page paper, an overflowing to do list or even just finding a parking spot in order to make it to class on time. Symptoms to look for in determining if you suffer from everyday anxiety are things like increased heart rate, lack of concentration in school and work, having issues sleeping or just not being your normal self.

College is a time of great growth for a young adult. Sometimes, you completely lose sight of who you are. Negative thoughts and emotions can flood your mind, making it almost impossible to concentrate on anything truly important. I know first hand how difficult and lost anxiety can make you feel. It can debilitate you to a point where you wake up in the middle of the night shaking and short of breath. I battled anxiety my sophomore year of college and am proud to say that I am now happier than ever. I lost sight of what I wanted out of life.

Remember the days when you would cry at the mention of bed time?  All the fighting for only an extra hour of TV time.  As a college student, sleep seems to become more of a reward; one that you could not be happier to achieve!  When your work is done for the day you can finally relax and dream away all of your stress.  More and more sleep is being lost today though, especially in the lives of college students.

Roses are red, violets are blue, Valentine's Day is coming, in only a few! Excuse my lame attempt at a poem, but whether you like it or not Valentine's Day is right around the corner.  Some people are excited to take their significant others out for a special date and others are sitting in their room stewing over how this is the world's stupidest holiday. Whether you are pro-Valentine's Day or completely against it, there is no denying that it takes a toll on your mental health in some way.

Being a student is almost a guarantee that at some point you are going to be stressed out and overwhelmed. When you have a horrible week and are up to your eyeballs in homework, exams and extracurricular activities, how do you make time for yourself? Some things I have done in the past to help get away are taking a nap, going for a run, taking a yoga class and even catching up on my favorite TV shows on Netflix. But one of my favorite things to do for myself is surrounding myself with my friends.
