5 Ways To Overcome Stress & Choose a Study Abroad Program You Love
Nobody is denying that choosing a study abroad program or college is one of the most stressful experiences in one's life. You might be feeling like your entire life depends on this choice… and it does. That’s why you have to go through this the right way and with the right mindset. So, Educatly is here to help you do just that. Relax! It's all going to be okay.
How to overcome stress and choose a study abroad program:
1. Do proper research
Explore different fields, programs, universities, and even career paths. To find what you really want, research thoroughly and collect all the info you might need to make sure you explore all available options and understand their future.
2. Organizing is your best friend
Your search process has to be organized. Making a list of all your options is highly recommended. And for extra organization, it would be great if you could write down the pros and cons of each option and break down every point into sub-points. That will help you organize your thoughts and ideas and clearly see how each option looks.
3. Ask for opinions
Make sure to contact your advisor or counselor for professional opinions. You can also ask people who have gone through this process before. You have no idea how helpful it is to ask for other people’s opinions!
4. Start eliminating
After you’ve done your thorough research, organized your options, understood the pros and cons, and talked to experts, it’s time for the elimination process. Narrow down your options and start comparing all over again to ensure you hit the bull’s eye.
We know that this phase is stressful and maybe even overwhelming, but there’s light at the end of the tunnel, and it will worsen before it gets good! It's completely natural to be scared, but really, don't let it take over your life and seek professional help.
You’re not really alone. Many people go through this process, but not all of them have Educatly to guide them every step of the way.
