Hi @Sunnybear ! Your feelings are super common as I find myself and majority of people I know feeling the exact same way quite often, so you are definitely not alone (as this thread has already shown!). I am at the end of my third year of my Psych undergrad and waiting for my confirmation to do Honours next year, however, I am constantly finding myself already stressing about masters as I am also behind in my course compared to my friends What helps me is trying to focus on things that I can control, such as studying as best as I can to give myself the greatest opportunities down the track and also reminding myself to not feel guilty for enjoying my life as a young adult. For example, I participated in overseas exchange for my course as it was something I ALWAYS wanted to do. During the time of applying, however, I found out that this would mean I'd have to delay graduating due to course requirements. This become very worrisome for me as I felt I'd become way too behind in my path to adulthood and full time employment compared to my friends however I don't regret studying overseas one bit! I learnt so much more about the world and myself than I would have if I stayed home purely to finish Uni faster. To further add onto @Wolfie_ 's point, life is not a race and their is so much the world has to offer, enjoy it while you have the freedom and health to do so! How are you feeling today?

1. Are there any habits you have that you feel don't add positively to your wellbeing? Are there any ways to change these? I have a habit of laying down in bed after i've finished work. I get so excited to complete all the tasks i've set out for the afternoon after work, then as soon as i get home i think "i'll just lay down for a little to relax and check my socials then get to it" but as soon as i sit or lay down i get too tired and lazy to get back up again! It takes much more effort to begin the tasks then. I am trying to stop myself from getting into a relaxed mindset as soon as i get home and instead go straight into completing what i have to for the day with regular rest periods 2. Is there anything you want to incorporate into your routine? How might they be beneficial? What steps can you take to make this happen? I want to incorporate taking my medication at the same times every day, as i have found i take them in certain time periods but often not at the same time. This would help me by providing my body with the same equal dosage regularly so that my body can improve safely with minimal side effects. I will set alarms for the desired times and see how that goes! 3. Do you have a random habit that isn't positive or negative, but you always do? e.g. some people always have the correct earphone in the right ear, or always bite the head off a chocolate frog first etc. this was a tricky one haha! However, i always have to play netball with two pairs of socks on. I've been doing it for years because i've always had blisters but even without the blisters, it's not comfortable anymore to play or train with only one pair of socks haha
