Beating Anxiety

Tuesdays 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm

Click here to join

Anxiety is a common physiological reaction to college life that almost all students experience during their time at Ohio State. This weekly seminar is designed to help students 1) understand what anxiety is from a biopsychosocial perspective, 2) describe the ways in which our thoughts and feelings respond to the internal sense of anxiety, and 3) discuss the ways in which we can reduce our anxiety in terms of how to take care of our bodies, emotions, and thinking habits. When you leave this seminar you should have a strong foundation on how to manage your own anxiety and what steps you need to take in order to feel better.
