Signs of Stress

Do you get headaches? Are you biting your nails, feeling irritable or having a hard time sleeping? Maybe it’s hard for you to concentrate, or you feel anxious. These are all signs that you may be stressed.

Managing Your Stress

Stress is a normal reaction. Many times, you can’t avoid it. But you can often lower your stress levels just by taking better care of your body and mind.

Plan a Stress-Relief Event

If you’re a Resident Advisor, part of a student organization or other member of the UB community, you can request a facilitated workshop, or host your own customized event with guidance from our Stress Reduction Team.

Talk to Someone About Your Stress

Talking to someone else about your stress can often help you feel better. Whether you’re texting with a friend or family member, talking with your Resident Advisor (RA) or Community Advisor (CA), or meeting confidentially with an on-campus professional, there’s always someone who will listen.
