Stress Relief

March 19, 2015 • Adulting

So letís face it, there are going to be some days/weeks that are just a big ball of stress. Itís important to keep yourself extra healthy these weeks. This is something I struggle with most. Since Iíve got such a busy semester, Iím setting myself some personal goals that are both realistic and manageable. So here they are:

Get lots of sleep

I am the BIGGEST culprit of not getting enough sleep, but it really is just so important! Youíll feel ten times better if you get at least a full 8 hours of sleep. Youíll retain information better and youíll be more energized to do your work. So put your books aside and pull up the covers. Itís bed time!

Drink TONS of water

I canít emphasize how crucial it is to remember to drink water. Youíll feel 10 times better and have sooo much more energy.

Eat regular meals and eat healthy!

Itís hard to find motivation after a long day of school and homework to make yourself a nice healthy meal, but itís so essential to do this at least a few days a week to make sure youíre getting the nutrients you need.

Exercise regularly

Itíll release endorphins and stress all in one!


Pull out your coolest yoga pose (preferably something that you can maintain for a while :P) and do some self reflection to help calm down. Itíll ease your mind and relax your body.

The most important thing is to take it one step at a time. Stressful weeks tend to get the better of us, but if we do all of the above, it makes it at least a tiny bit easier!

Good luck, everyone! Iím rooting for you!

I really like this study playlist. Check it out!
