Welcome to Adult Learners/Students


Thank you for logging on to yet enjoy more "reading", you are truly an adult student when you have logged on to read more reading on top of everything else your college or university throws at you. Here I am hopeful that we will be able to help alleviate some of the stress you will incur or are in the midst of currently. This is a place where those furthering their academic careers may come and chat with each other - almost like getting away to a nice cafe'. So, grab a cup of your favorite drink and let's just chat about things that go on in our lives as adult learners who are students. We Rock!

Take a Breather

Overwhelmed? Tired? Exhausted? Now is the time to sit back and reflect the many responsibilities you may have. Are you doing too much; have a difficult time saying NO? Then you probably have problems setting healthy boundaries. Remember this student, you can not properly function if you are overwhelmed, exhausted and tired all the time. You must decide today to take a break. Give yourself permission to go for a long walk, leave the cell phone at home. Take a long coffee break. When is the last time you watched a movie and laughed or cried? It's time, you know, to take care of you. Right where you sit or stand, make a conscious effort to take a deep breath, now ask yourself - what can I do today to alleviate some of the stress I am experiencing. Go ahead. So, what did you come up with? I hope you are honest with yourself, you can not please everybody and you should stop trying to please everybody. Take a break, go out to dinner, read a good book that has nothing to do with your college subject matter. Start today becoming the winner within. We are on a voyage to becoming MASTER STUDENTS!

You can do it!
