How to overcome anxiety during waiting

Post by HyperCar2022 » Sun Jan 16, 2022 9:22 am

I really have no idea how I should survive the waiting period. This might be the toughest winter recess I've ever had in my ungrad time. What about you? What are you doing now to be optimistic and energetic right now?

I honestly am going through the same thing
I absolutely had no motivation to study math over the winter break

I'd say one of the best ways is just to not check this forum (or any others)..... It has only ever dramatically increased my anxiety. I specifically decided not to browse this place until I got accepted somewhere first, and I think it really helped me. Also, in my opinion, this is a very stressful time, and it's okay to give yourself a break. I don't think you should feel guilty if you just want to binge watch shows or something, if that's what helps!

Thank you for your kind words. I think that's the tricky point that I know this may help but can't stop checking it.
