10 Things Students Can Start Doing Today to Decrease Anxiety

The list of challenges affecting students today is longer than ever.

They face new challenges that previous generations didn’t encounter, like social media overload and cyberbullying. 

Countless studies have found links between social media use/screen time and anxiety. The more screen time a young person has, the more likely they are to have higher anxiety than those around them.

It’s no surprise that anxiety and depression are on the rise in students all over the world. 

Like all challenges in life, the ones a student faces today can’t simply can’t be “turned off”. They are a part of reality and they need to accept it.

What they need need are tools to properly navigate through these issues without losing their sense of self worth. And mindfulness is one of the best tools available.

Developing a daily habit of mindfulness can help even the most overburdened student live more peacefully and presently.
