    Well this week is "Gigantic projects week" and next wee is the official hell week... where I, and other students at my college put there jobs, social life, diets, on hold, sacrifice fun, family time, and sleep all in an effort to put as much time into studying as possible... This is always a triggering time for me.

    two questions

    1. Anyone have advice for how to handle triggers/prevent the thoughts and stress from being triggering.

    2. Anyone else going through this hell week? Maybe this thread can become a little short term mutual support group for us.

    one suggestion: SLEEP!

    sleep sleep sleeep sleeeeeeeeeeep.
    It recharges the brain and body and lets all the gunk and clutter floating around in your brain get cleaned out.
    other ideas: drink more water than usual, and (seriously) if possible get a massage, professional or otherwise. drink water before and after. the massage will get toxins out of their hiding places and into the bloodstream where the water will take them away.

    Also...and this is gonna sound weird...wear comfortable shoes. its the little things that irk us, so let the little things help you on your way

    Work out. That's my favourite activity. No better way to take out the stress lol .

    I was told by our college that bright lights are more relaxing during study.

    Also, take many short breaks. You won't burn out as fast.

    Eat well. Google food for studying.

    Youtube "pranks" for laughs.

    yea, i agree. laughing is good. relieves tension and it will trick your brain into thinking that studying is a fun activity.

    That is the thing... it wont be all over... the many (and I mean many) hours i put in will be for nothing... I will have found a way to find failure at the brink of success again... all because I after so many years still lose important papers. I can't go through English class again... i sacrificed fun, family time, and my social life to do well and that wasn't enough... I told myself at the beginning of the semester its success or death... I can not bare failing again.

    Physical exertion is clinically shown to be more effective than placebos and not doing anything to fight depression.

    Well aparetnly i had left that paper in school... got placed on top of a stack of work that somehow was left in the room. I should be relived but I feel amost as triggerd as before... what in the world is up with me?

    Well that paper is not a concern... other then the standard anxiety about the grade.

    We got a different essay back with the chance to revise it... and I talked to the professor and he gave me some sugestions... problem is i can not find sources to research it...

    Between that and my normal studies i feel rediouclsly triggerd... I know I shouldnt, i have a shot at getting As in all my classes... (other then one that I may have failed IDK) but i still feel stressed... GAH

    Make sure you're taking some time out for yourself. It'll help with the stress. Play video games, watch a show or do some sort of physical activity. It will keep you sane and you'll get through!

    Good luck:wink:
