How to Survive Stress


Hey, so last week I talked about back to school advice but this week I wanted to talk about how to handle stress especially when you have exams or work in school:

Take breaks

The thing about working or stressing over something is that you have no time for you so plan times that you can take a break in between working, this allows you to take some time for yourself and take a break from working so that you can actually have a chance to relax and get some rest. If you plan how long and when you will take breaks this will allow you take breaks without giving yourself the opportunity to procrastinate.

Take your mind off whatever is bothering you

The best way to stop stressing about something, especially if it is something that you can’t change is to take your mind of it and by that I mean distract yourself in any way that you can so you don’t have to continue thinking about it at all times. Even if you distract yourself with something ridiculously boring it is better than thinking about your problem all the time, the more you think about whatever is bothering you, the worse you will feel about it.

Do things that make you feel happy

The more that you stress about things the more unhappy which will just eventually make the situation worse and worse and you won’t be able to feel happy, so take the time out of your day to try and make time to do something that makes you feel as happy as possible and that will make you feel good. I always think that trying to be happy will make everything around you feel a lot better about everything else.

Sleep as much as you can

Although sleeping is probably one of the most boring things in the world, it is also kind of like a medicine that can cure all but to me if your stressed, the best thing is to sleep as much as possible because the more the sleep you have the better you feel both physically and mentally which can really help to put things into perspective which can make you feel a lot better. Sleep can also help to relax your brain which will also help you feel less stressed.

Let me know of anything you would like me to talk about in another future post. That’s all for now,
