Tip 3: Get Some Perspective
When you're in college, often your whole life happens within a very small radius. You may, for example, go from class to the residence hall to the library to the dining hall to the frat house, and soon "forget" that there's a whole big world outside of this less-than-a-mile wide bubble. It can be easy to start thinking that what's happening in the bubble is all that matters in the world, which can sometimes feel comfortable, but sometimes...not. Try getting off campus now and then, or if that's not feasible, explore some parts of campus you don't know very well. When the drama of your campus life starts to take up all the space in your head, read up on some international news, or simply take a different route to class. A little perspective can go a long way in keeping you grounded.
