Helpful Financial Aid & Scholarship Tips

How are you avoiding burnout in college, especially during hard times?

As the weather starts to warm up and you start to get “spring fever” or deal with our current situation of COVID-19, what are some things you can do to reduce any sort of stress-related exhaustion and keep yourself motivated?

  1. Why? Remember the reason why your education is so important to you.  Creating a sense of internal motivation by keeping the "why" in the forefront of your mind will help you identify the experiences you want to have while you are in college.
  2. Take Breaks and Create Ways to Manage Stress - Creating your sense of relief by thinking about what makes you happy and where you feel the least stressed such as exercising, communicating with friends and family, etc. can help restore your focus, increase your creativity and could even improve memory functions.
  3. Keep the End in Mind - While parts of college will inevitably be stressful and difficult, keeping the end in mind will create lasting benefits for you and your family. This can include financial gains, knowledge, and skillsets that you can be proud of and the ability to pass on the benefits to your children for generations to come!
