New Delhi: After a break of over two years owing to the coronavirus pandemic, Delhi University – one of the most prestigious institutions in the country – is all set to open up for regular, in-person classes. Following student protests, the university is all set to open up as of February 17, 2022, and there is a sense of thrill amongst all students who had been waiting to step into college life for a long time. Be it the students who kick-started college amidst the pandemic or those who ended up spending the prime years at home, there is a sense of joy amongst students, and anxiety as well.

With that being said, there are many students who are struggling with the anxiety of going back to college – be it the fear of accommodating in college away from the comfort of home to finding a home in a strange city for children coming from various states.

Although there is no sure shot way of moving past anxiety, Times Now Digital sought to seek answers to this newly-born fear in students. And in interaction with Shamantha K, Counselling Psychologist at Fortis Hospitals, we found out some simple tips to help students with back-to-school anxiety.

“Anxiety levels would be substantially reduced if students have a routine that includes not only their study schedule but also indoor and outdoor activities as well as time for self-care. Colleges can try to ensure a smooth transition from online medium to the offline medium by a gradual increase in classes. Parents can try to identify the signs and symptoms of anxiety in kids. These can include erratic moods, sleeplessness, loss of interest in everyday activities, inability to concentrate, easily fatigued, irritability, and excuses to dodge school. Some students may even feel anxious over the fear of being contacting the virus,” she explained.

Besides this, the following tips can help all students go back to school or college without any anxiety or can ease them into the process.

  1. Recognise and emthapize with the concerns – be it COVID scare or fear of accommodating in a new environment
  2. Try to create a new routine for the students and help them ease into it before school opens up
  3. Help them recognise the fear of bullies and guide them through the process
  4. Offer emotional support for as long as possible during the early phase and then help the child believe in him or herself through the process
  5. Help the child practice mindfulness.
