Meditations & Affirmations

January 7, 2022 | By Edwin Burgos Perez

It is very easy to feel mentally, emotionally, and physically overwhelmed during stressful college days. Try using affirmations to get by!

Affirmations are simply statements that are designed to create self-change in the individual using them. They can serve as inspiration, as well as simple reminders, and can help you focus on your goals throughout the day.
