Five quick ways for you to get rid of stress

Christina Weitzel


Elizabeth Hernandez was
stressed, and it was only her
first day of classes.

Now a junior at Southern,
she remembers, "Last year, I
walked into my first nursing
class and sat down. The pro-
fessor started telling us every-
thing we had to do. It was only
the first day and it seemed I
had enough to do to last the
whole year. I felt there was
no way I could get everything

Elizabeth's experience of
college stress is not uncom-
mon. Seventy to 90 percent of
college students' visits to pri-
mary care physicians are the
result of stress or stress-relat-
ed sources, according to the
American Institute of Stress.

Often, it's easy to get over-
whelmed with everything.
However, stress reduction is
crucially important. So here
are five stress-reduction meth-
ods for college students that

take five minutes or less.

Take a break.

The counseling center at
Carroll College offers this tip,
"Get some exercise or fresh
air (simply a quick, brisk walk
outdoors if possible), or go
somewhere private and yell or

Even if you can't go outside,
you can still talk to a friend or
just sit for a few minutes.

Just breathe.

In the book, "The Complete
Idiot's Guide to Managing
Stress," Jeffrey Davidson ob-
serves, "You're always getting
encouraged to speed up— read
more, take in more, do more.
Sometimes, however, the best
response to a situation is not
to proceed rapidly, but take a
strategic pause."

One way, listed by Davidson,
to take that strategic pause is
simply to take a deep breath.
The best method for deep
breathing is to sit up straight
or stand, breathing in slowly

Get Your


reen on


Vexation: Way too

many plastic bags jammed

in my cabinet.

Solution: Put 'em to


Most of us probably already
use plastic grocery bags as
trash can liners (which
also saves money on buy-
ing rolls of trash bags), but
don't stop there. Use plastic
bags as packing material,
as duggie poop bags (not
in the <lnrr« f course), as
lunch t .. s „, or take them to

the store and bag your gro-
ceries with them again.

Clarification: A lot of
stores are already charg-
ing for the plastic bags and
encouraging shoppers to
buy reusable ones. IKEA
doesn't even offer dispos-
able bags anymore, only re-
usable ones that you have to
buy (which is why I left the
store looking like I had just
stolen a lot of stuff). Just be
sure to get the most out of
the plastic bags you've al-
ready paid for.

through your nose. Hold your
breath for a few seconds, then
exhale, according to the Dart-
mouth College website.

Write it down.

"I make lists for organiz-
ing things and getting them
done," said Giancarlo Peroso,
a senior nursing major at
Southern. "It helps spread out
your work load so your day is
not too packed."

Include everything that
needs to be done on the list,
but be realistic about your
goals. Don't try to fit too much
in your day, or you'll get over-

Throw it away.

G. Gaynor McTigue, au-
thor of "Why Make Yourself
Crazy? 100 Ways to Rid Your
Life of Needless Stress," offers
this tip.

"Every day, find one thing
you don't need and toss it. Or
give it away. Over time, the
clutter will begin to vanish and
space and order will magically
appear in your home... and
your life," McTigue says.

Change your mind.

Often, how you think has a
larger impact on your life than
what is actually happening.

Graphic by Christina Weitzel

The University of Georgia
health center website states,
"Changing the way you think
(a.k.a. cognitive restructuring)
can help you manage stressors
in your life. While we can't al-
ways control the events that
happen, we can control what
we think about the event,
which in turn shapes our feel-
ings about them."

If you think positively about
a test or assignment, chances
are you won't be as stressed
about it.

Shake n Bake are '08 football champs

What started out as a very
competitive football season

j not so competitive game.
f Team Shake n Bake [SnB] went
against team ShowTime for
the intramural football cham-
pionship on Monday night and
I it wasn't as exciting as the Gi-
I ants and Patriots Super Bowl
I upset. SnB left victorious with
I a crushing score of 34-6.

There was a rumor going

ng" said Jimmy Gaines,
ike n Bake player. "We just
ayed really well."
Before the football season
■en started, Showtime quar-
rback , Brian Seymore, had

the audacity to make a bet
with Didier Brival that his
team would make it to the
championship game and win
it all. Seymore didn't have any
players on his team yet but his
confidence outweighed his log-
ic and it was decided that the
loser would have to pay for a
PF Chang's meal.

Surprisingly Seymore led

his team all the way to the
championship but only accom-
plished one touchdown pass to
Showtime wide receiver, Willis

"We kept getting the ball

close to our end zone and nev-
er really had an opportunity to
make a legitimate drive down
the field" Seymore said. "I
know Didier was scared about
how far I made it even though
we lost."

The referees had to stop the
game and call SnB the win-
ners as it became clear who
would win. This is the second
time that SnB has dominated
Southern's intramural football
world and they're starting to
look like the Fluffy Chickens of
flag football.

The Men's B League cham-
pionship was won for the first
time by The New Breed. How-
ever, history seems to be re-
peating itself as the Men's A

that won last year. Which oth-

Christmas decorations
before Thanksgiving

There is nothing worse than rushing
Christmas; there is nothing better
than enjoying it at the right time.

The great array of scarves
that people wear

There's nothing like a warm, colorful
scarf to pull an outfit together in the
chilly, fall air.

Discourse of Hope

Circulating that Obama is going to
make all the economic problems dis-
appear; there needs to be a distinc-
tion between realistic optimism and
naive sensationalism.

Senator Obama's presidential-
elect speech

We haven't seen such a great orator in
many years; Senator McCain's Conces-
sion speech— his class, humility, and
patriotism are worthy of aspiration.

Those monotone teachers

That make the most interesting topics
as mundane as the last time my great
aunt made my brother and I decorate
over two hundred little dreidels for
Hanukkah back in 1993.

The new wellness center

It's amazing! I feel like I'm burning ca/o-
\~~ '4 ries just when I walk in the door! I won-
der if there's something in the air...

The higher food prices

...and the people who complain about
the cafe, saying, "The prices in the cafe,
man, they're so high!" They always have
been and they always will be, so get
over it already!

Diary of a single Southern male

Dear Diary,

I spoke to Compatible Cass-
ie the other day. She handed
me my pencil in history class.
All I said was, "Thank you,"
and though I wanted to say
so much more, I felt like I
couldn't. I just wish that girls
weren't so confusing. I have
absolutely no idea whether or
not they are interested in me
because they purposefully play
hard-to-get; they do not want
to be made vulnerable by be-
ing openly interested in me, in
return. Instead, they selfishly
hide these insecurities behind
the excuse that the guy has to
be the one to make the first
move, to be the one to pursue
her. And this may be true, and
I would love to be such a guy,
but that does not mean that
they should be closed down;
that does not mean that they
should purposefully pretend
to not be interested in me (or

even to IGNORE me) all in the
hopes that it will strike a match
to some flame of passion that is
supposed to be ignited within
my heart that will cause me to
rise up and conquer the castle,
slay the dragon and rescue the
princess that resides captive
in the uppermost tower. But
even when that flame is lit,
what am I to do when the cas-
tle I must conquer is the walls
that the princess has set up to
block me: a protective shield
ensuring her safety from expo-
sure. What am I to do when the
dragon I must conquer is the
attitude that the princess has
donned to let everyone know
that she is capable of taking
care of herself, that she needs
no man, when in actuality all
that she wants is the man will-
ing to come and rescue her
from herself. What is a guy
to do when the very reasons
that he is supposed to be the
one to pursue the girl are the
same reasons by which she is
un-pursuable— behind which
she hides to mask her scared

vulnerability. I would be hap-
py to step up and pursue the
