School is starting back up soon and it's normal to be dealing with stress and anxiety around it. Will you like your teachers and classes? How will being apart over the summer change relationships? Will being back in-person be scary?

Here are some strategies that can help:

  • Practice mindfulness.

  • Maintain healthy behaviors. Exercise, get enough sleep, and practice healthy eating.

  • Stick to a routine. Making a schedule for yourself can help you feel more in control.

  • Reach out to friends or family. Sometimes talking things out with someone you trust can make all the difference.
