Being a student sucks. You are constantly drawn to stress no matter how much you try to avoid it. There is always a trigger that sets off the small breakdowns students are so renowned for. It’s almost as if there is no end to the workload that awaits. Sometimes we forget to desires because we are so focused on the bazillion tasks we have ahead of us. Here are some tips to slowly destress and stop worrying about our day-to-day lives.
Drink a warm Beverage
It is a well-known fact that warm milk makes you Sleep better because it causes your muscles to relax. Whenever you feel like you’re on the verge of throwing your work out the window, take a break and sip on a hot drink. No matter if it’s tea, hot cocoa or just plain milk, I can hate tee you’ll feel just a tad bit better.
Make a To-Do list
Making a to-do list may feel daunting and wrong for whenever you are trying to keep your mind off of the tasks you have to do. Constructing a list will help you focus on the most important tasks first as well as it keeps your focus. Just keep in mind not to be too ambitious. Be realistic with what you can do that day and stick to it.
Like any other teenagers, we neglect to see the importance of sleep. Instead of going to sleep we always want to get our tasks done for the day (or watch Netflix). If you are yawning it is a sign that your body wants you to get back to sleep. Try sleeping before 11 so that you don’t feel too tired in the mornings, thus relieving your stress as you are able to concentrate on your work.
Listen to good Music
It is a known fact that music lifts our mood and makes us feel a lot better. What I would suggest is listening to not only your favorite tunes but tunes that make you happy. Get on to making a list with happy songs which will, in turn, lift your spirits and makes you forget some of the stress you are holding inside.
I know what you’re thinking. You don’t have the time to exercise and I have been at that point too. But what we forget is the benefits training has on our brain and understanding. Not only do we feel better and less stressed after a workout but we are re-wiring our brains into taking in information in a better way.
Take one Day Off
We’re always so stuck in our little circle of work that we forget to give ourselves some time off and do everything that we want to do. That is why you should take a day of the week that is completely free from work to just relax. Life is too short to be always be working.
This is the most important piece of advise I can give anyone. Whenever you feel like all you want to do is lay down and cry remember to take a deep breath. You can do this because you are strong. There is no need to stress, just breathe.
