When I get stressed from school work or I’m in a stressful situation I often take a deep breath and map out what I need to do. The first thing I do in the beginning of the week is make a sticky note for each day and put on it the assignments or schoolwork I need to get done. Spacing the work out I need to accomplish by the weekend helps me not to feel too overwhelmed all at once. When something gets done and I get to cross it off the list I feel huge relief off my shoulders. I like to stay very organized and on top of things not only with school work but other aspects of life too. I hate when things happen unexpectedly or out of plan, like a pop quiz or an assignment a teacher throws in last minute. These are the situations in which I get most stressed. Exercise has always helps me to relieve an eventful of overwhelming day, a long run outside has always cured me. I try to schedule free time in my daily schedule as well to enjoy or do something I like, such as socializing with friends or watching a movie. One thing I found I did quite frequently last year but not so much this is to color in a coloring book. Listening to music and a nice cup of green tea help to calm me down as well. In the future, I would like to be able to cope better with the unexpected or the curve balls life throws at me. Meditation is something I have always considered and wonder how well it works. Learning different breathing strategies I think would also benefit me in a stressful situation. I am interested to know others ways of stress relieving activities or management skills that I can incorporate into my life.
