College students often lack awareness of healthy coping strategies to manage stress. College students experience stress due to the number of responsibilities, such as having a job or being a student-athlete, as well as keeping up with coursework. Stress can result in feelings of being overwhelmed, depression, lower academic performance, and even a risk of dropping out. When college students learn healthy strategies to cope with stress, it improves their overall mental and physical well-being. To address the lack of stress management awareness, I created a one-day workshop for college students who are members of the Women’s Soccer Club at California State University, Monterey Bay, in Marina, California.
