Ok, so we all get a bit stressed sometimes, whether it’s from school (or work) or it just feels like nothing seems to be going your way. Anyway, here are a couple of my tips for dealing with stress.
*OF COURSE, IF YOU NEED TO THEN VISIT A DOCTOR. THESE POINTS ARE NOT DESIGNED TO REPLACE SPECIALIST TREATMENT!*
The most important point is probably to just USE YOUR COMMON SENSE. The following points are basically just using common sense to help reduce stress and anxiety.
HAVE A RELAXING BATH AND DON’T GO TO BED TOO LATE.
Things will seem better in the morning. Trust me – I speak from experience.
PLAN TO DO SOMETHING AT THE WEEKEND OR DURING YOUR FREE TIME.
This gives you something to look forward to. It can be a nice meal, going to a movies, having a trip somewhere: it doesn’t really matter as long as you enjoy the activity. If you just want to relax, then fine, but be careful because this can sometimes just make you feel worse.
EAT SOMETHING AND HAVE A DRINK.
GET SOME EXERCISE.
Stressing the body will actually make you less stressed (all those endorphins…or you know, something like that). If you’re not a very sporty person, then try just jumping and messing around at the pool.
EVEN IF YOU JUST WANT TO CURL UP AND CRY, STAY STRONG!
I know that sometimes crying just seems like the best option. But really try to stay strong and see the light at the end of the tunnel because eventually you’ll just naturally stop crying and then wish you’d been doing something to sot out the problem instead.
REMEMBER THAT YOU CAN’T CHANGE THE PAST.
Going through all the possible things you could have done to avoid that really embarrassing moment is not gonna change anything, OK?
…Well, I hope these tips help you to manage your anxiety and stress. Thanks to all you awesome people who read this and have followed or liked this blog. If you have the time to comment that would be amazing.
