Does anyone have any good ideas on stress relief during nursing school.I am a junior taking Adult Health I, I think I will pull all of my hair out before it's over. Also looking for any new ideas for studying tips. I am just taking way to long to get through any subject.
Here's what I do with my stresses whether they be from my work life or my home life or just things that may become a worry for me.
I write about them free-hand, just kind of "hash things out" and get in touch with the sources of my stress. From there I get a clear picture in my mind of what I specifically want help on. And then I ask for the help! Using a 79-cent notebook, I list my desires in affirmative, present tense sentences. I am asking God for help in attracting what I want. But you can think of it as asking your Creator, Jesus Christ, Allah, Buddha, God, the universe, your Higher Power or ANY belief system that you practice.
Some of the parameters I would write about if I were you would be: I am focused during class. I am in tune with the subject matter. I easily comprehend the subject matter. I score well on my tests. I have all the help and resources I need. I score "B's" or better on my tests. I have the proper study partners for me. I quickly get through each subject. I retain what I study. I make good progress with each passing week. I remain calm. I have a positive attitude about nursing school. ETC., ETC., ETC.
Short, direct, simple sentences. Skip lines between sentences.
Ask for what you want...pen to paper is powerful...I blog specifically about tools nurses can use to counter nursing stress. There's a little more to it, but the MOST important part is listing what you want in writing. There is more information at my blog, listed in my profile.
Good luck to you! Keep up the good work and keep asking for what you want in life!
