You’re a busy college student.

There is no doubt that college is stressful. In addition to your classes, assignments, and tests, you also have to navigate social and emotional challenges that arise. Maybe, it is your first time living away from home and managing your own money. Or you’re struggling to find new social groups, figure out who you are, or decide what you want to do with the rest of your life. When these stressors all occur at the same time, it can feel incredibly overwhelming.
