Top Tips 

✓  Breathe. Deep, steady breaths from the belly can help calm feelings of anxiety.

 Think about the present moment. Avoid getting too caught up in thinking about the past or the future.

✓ Think of solutions. Dealing with practical problems, such as assignment overload, can help with emotional problems such as anxiety.

✓ Ask for help. Asking for help when you need it is important and useful when trying to solve problems.
