  1. Great post! Your link to the ways we can relieve stress was spot on and I feel it’s very important to practice some these stress relieving techniques on a day-to-day basis, especially being a full-time working student. I use the deep breathing technique all the time, and I will add, that it is important to focus on breathing through your belly, as most people take shallow breaths only using their chest.
