As everyone is aware of, we are on the brink of final exams. With finals comes lack of sleep, giant amounts of coffee, studying until the wee hours of the morning, and, if you're like me, lots of stress. If you tend to worry about all the things you have to do in such a short amount of time and how you're never going to make it through finals, never fear, Chapter 12 is here to help. This chapter offers helpful stress coping methods, like social support, behavioral control, cognitive control, and emotional control.
So, when you become stressed with studying, seek social support by chatting with your roommates or giving your mom a call. They will be able help you with emotional control. If that doesn't work, take a break from studying and practice behavioral control by reading a book (for fun!), watching your favorite movie, or baking some Christmas cookies. And to practice cognitive control, just think that in only a few days finals will be over and it will be winter break.
My favorite post was "Deindividuated hipsters? How ironically ironic" because it is interesting to think about how our behaviors differ in crowds and how some may end up doing things they would never think of doing individually.
