Winter break is usually the first extended period of time since the beginning of the semester that college students say “goodbye” to their dorm/college life. Although some students may be looking forward to this, some may have some reservations about traveling home for the prolonged winter break. The holiday season is typically a time of many magical and joyful experiences; however, it can also cause feelings of stress & anxiety. The following tips may be helpful for college students & their families as they prepare for the winter break.

Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) is a type of depression that's related to changes in seasons. SAD begins and ends at about the same times every year. Symptoms start in the fall and continue into the winter months, making you feel moody and low energy. Less often, SAD causes depression in the spring or early summer.

We all like to stay connected via social media outlets and the news. However, this can come at a cost in regards to our daily mood and well being. Have you ever been scrolling through the news, instagram or facebook and noticed that your mood has taken a turn for the worse? If, so you’re not alone. A 2017 Pew Research Center study found that 69% of U.S. adults are social media users (Pew Research Center, 2017). Another study found that people who watched 14 minutes of negative news material had an increase in anxiety and depression compared to a group who watched positive or neutral material (Johnston, 1997). Below are a list of ways to stay connected to others and to recent events in the news without having as much of an impact on your mood:

Here are some helpful resources for those who are enrolled in our College Mental Wellness IOP or for any student who faces the challenge of managing college life and school.

How to create a study plan

A study plan is an organized schedule outlining study times and learning goals. Just like with work or school schedules, college students should develop a schedule that sets aside dedicated time each week for studying. This schedule should include dates of quizzes, tests, and exams, as well as deadlines for papers and projects.

Best Wishes to You this Fall!
