Tip 8: Have a "Thing" You Do and Do It
Once you immerse yourself in college life, it can be easy to feel like you've actually lost yourself in the process. You might get busy (or not busy enough) with new classes, new friends, and new activities and then wake up one day and wonder, "Where am I?" It's important to have at least one thing you do that keeps you grounded and centered - something that keeps you connected to yourself. It doesn't have to be anything fancy; maybe it's an activity, a place, a ritual, or a hobby. It could be something that relaxes you, or something that amps you up. Sometimes when you feel lost or forget who you really are, it's helpful to "lose" yourself in something familiar to find yourself again.
