South deals with stress in seminar

By Mona Lisa Tucker/reporter

South Counselor Sandra Johnson will present Stress: Coping with the Pressures of School, Work and Family 12:30-1:30 p.m. Nov. 2 in the SSTU Texas Room.

“The most important thing I would like participants to grasp is the idea that they should do an assessment, a daily assessment,” she said. “Assess whom or what they are imaging after, following or listening to.”

Johnson said students should check themselves just like a doctor would check their temperature or blood pressure.

“It should be the same thing in the sense of life,” she said.

Johnson will also discuss the area of upbringing that deals with how students operate today.

“There are many students whose perceptions about themselves are negative,” she said.

Students will learn techniques on how to counteract those negative thoughts.

“Those decisions or choices will pinpoint the level or kind of stresses that we have,” she said.

College students should also keep in mind that their level of success is tied into how good they are doing with their health, Johnson said.

She said students should ask themselves questions such as “Why do I feel this way?” or “Am I eating right?” or “What derogative thing am I doing with my body?”

“You don’t feel good, you don’t do well,” she said.

Johnson said she will incorporate a couple of physical exercises into the session, small things students can do whether they are in a meeting or classroom.

“Little things that can help impact our lives in a positive way,” she said.
