As the middle of the school year rolls around, so much more stress seems to be loaded on the shoulders of any high school/college student out there. I have no idea what it is but all of a sudden it’s as if the whole world has decided to crap out a bunch of un-needed stress… “What’s the best thing to do with all that stress?” you ask me. Two simple words, release it.
Stress on stress on stress just leads to big fat mental break downs and with the crazy American teenage life I’m pretty sure that we don’t need any of those roaming into our lives a couple of times a week. By all means release it! Releasing stress is a lot easier than people tend to think and I can say that from first-hand experience.
I used to think it was pear nonsense when people would tell me I need to quit being so stressed out. Who the hell were they to tell me that I needed to take a chill pill and calm down. I didn’t realize how right all these people were until I actually tried letting some of all my built up stress out. Letting stress out is so much easier than people really think and it only takes a few steps.
1) 1) Make a list of all your favorite things you do in your spare time- rain or sun
2) 2) Take a break between the homework and just go out and do one of those things whether you do it alone or with a friend.
Look at that it’s only two awfully simple steps and one of them is even fun! When push comes to shove… the last thing we need is more stress! Whether your spare time fun is going out to the shooting range and letting out some steam or if it’s painting a picture out in the yard, there is no better way to let off some steam.
