de-stress

So I’m not gonna lie, I consider myself a pretty positive person. I love life and I get excited when I think about how great and fun it is and all the cool things you can do in this life. But my one devil that I just can’t over come: stress. I stress so much. I tell myself all my positive thoughts while I stress but I still do it. School has been in session for about 4 weeks I believe and I have two presentations coming up. My dad once told me that public speaking is EVERYONE’S fear… but why do I feel like my fear is different? Everyone seems so chill about it. When I master the anxiety of public speaking, I will share some advice for you guys – I genuinely want to become a good public speaker, it seems fun. Until then, I’ll just help you with ways to calm the heck down from stress.

  1. Take a nice, long shower or bath
  2. After that shower or bath, turn on some Christmas lights, light a candle, put a face mask on and lay in bed. Drink some tea and just relaaaaaax
  3. Watch a movie. At night. After you’ve finished your homework (usually the thing that stresses me out)
  4. Eat your favorite fruit
  5. Drink more tea (the calming kind)
  6. Go for a walk
  7. Make a vision board
  8. Let your thoughts out in a journal
  9. Evaluate your priorities
  10. Tell yourself that it IS going to be okay, and the thing you are stressing out about is so little
  11. Keep a good attitude
  12. Take deep breaths
  13. Spend time with positive and uplifting people (they exist – go find them)
  14. Go to bed early
  15. Exercise – whatever that entails to you
  16. Plan for a night of relaxing
  17. Watch the sunset
  18. Do arts and crafts
  19. Listen to your favorite music or a positive YouTube video or podcast
  20. Dance (my favorite)
  21. Go out for ice cream or froyo or gelato or something that is appealing to you
  22. Clean your room / declutter
  23. Write you goals
  24. Eat lunch in a park
  25. Make a list the night before of what you need to achieve the next day
  26. Laugh! At yourself… anything!
  27. Escape for a bit and read
  28. Say “no” to activities that you know will put you behind or stress you out more
  29. Try not to procrastinate. I say “try” because I am procrastinating right now but I don’t mind because I enjoy writing and it makes me happy and less stressed!
  30. Let go of a grudge or something negative that has been building up inside of you all week

Although these are little things to do when you are stressed, if you start to implement them into your daily lifestyle, you will notice that your life is more positive and stress free! Remember… it may be bad (stressful) day but its not a bad life πŸ˜‰
