Athens State Career Development Center

(3)

The Career Development Center provides assistance to Athens State students and Alumni in career planning, development and job seeking strategies. The department serves as a major link between students/Alumni and potential employers. We are here to assist students in identifying and fulfilling their future goals and aspirations. Students receive support in creating professional documents (resumes, cover letters, and social media profiles) and learning effective interview and job search techniques. We offer a variety of opportunities to come face to face with hiring employers and graduate school recruiters at career fairs, employer workshops, information sessions, and at campus recruiting events. All students and alumni are welcome to register with our office. To register, visit: https://athens-csm.symplicity.com/students/

4 Steps to loving your ordinary life!

1. When you feel your “life isn’t good enough” anxiety rising, pause, close your eyes, and notice that you’re in the process of worrying about what you’re not doing, or what you haven’t yet achieved. Notice the feelings of disappointment you have with yourself and your life at the present moment.
2. Accept these feelings of disappointment as a part of you, focus on them, and just allow yourself to feel them. As you focus, notice the emotional sensations of this feeling throughout your body.
3. Open your eyes, turn your attention to the present moment: what are you doing right now? Put all of your awareness into this moment—be 100% present with the physical and emotional sensations of whatever you’re doing.
4. Notice that the present moment is enough—enough for right now. It doesn’t need to be better. It doesn’t need to be anything more. It’s good enough already, in its own unique way. And so are you.

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month.
If you or someone you know is in an emergency, call The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-TALK (8255) or call 911 immediately.

Suicidal thoughts, much like mental health conditions, can affect anyone regardless of age, gender or background. In fact, suicide is often the result of an untreated mental health condition. Suicidal thoughts, although common, should not be considered normal and often indicate more serious issues.

While suicide prevention is important to address year-round, Suicide Prevention Awareness Month provides a dedicated time to come together with collective passion and strength around a difficult topic. The truth is, we can all benefit from honest conversations about mental health conditions and suicide, because just one conversation can change a life.

As we prepare to start a new semester, here are ten things you can do for your mental health:

1. Value yourself:
Treat yourself with kindness and respect, and avoid self-criticism.

2. Take care of your body:
Taking care of yourself physically can improve your mental health.

3. Surround yourself with good people:
People with strong family or social connections are generally healthier than those who lack a support network.

4. Give yourself:
Volunteer your time and energy to help someone else.

5. Learn how to deal with stress:
Like it or not, stress is a part of life. Practice good coping skills: exercise, take a nature walk, play with your pet or try journal writing as a stress reducer.

6. Quiet your mind:
Try meditating, Research shows that meditation may help you feel calm and centered.

7. Set realistic goals:
Decide what you want to achieve academically, professionally and personally, and write down the steps you need to realize your goals.

8. Break up the monotony:
Although our routines make us more efficient and enhance our feelings of security and safety, a little change of pace can perk up a tedious schedule.

9. Avoid alcohol and other drugs:
Keep alcohol use to a minimum and avoid other drugs.

10. Get help when you need it:
Seeking help is a sign of strength — not a weakness.

National PTSD Awareness Day is observed annually on June 27. This is a day to recognize the effects post-traumatic stress has on the lives of those affected by it. According to PTSD United, 20% of adults in the United States who have experienced a traumatic event suffer from PTSD.

The United States Senate established PTSD Awareness Day in 2010 following then-Sen. Kent Conrad’s efforts to designate a day of awareness as a tribute to Army Staff Sgt. Joe Biel of the North Dakota National Guard, Davison said Biel suffered from PTSD and took his life in April 2007 after returning to North Dakota following his second tour of duty in the Iraq War.

Biel’s birthday, June 27, was chosen to mark PTSD Awareness Day and honor his memory.
