With the fall semester just around the corner, you may be getting stressed just thinking about all the work you’ll be getting. But don’t worry ’cause we’re here to give you some tips on how to stress less!
Organize your life –
Yes, organize everything. Your apartment, the fridge, your closet, the random stuff under your bed. Once you start to declutter all the physical things, your mind will do the same. It’s such a relief when you don’t have to worry about that messy room and you can actually start focusing on the real stuff! So take a weekend and completely clean and organize your life. I promise it’ll make you feel so much better.
seriously. do it. take a deep breath. count to ten.
Take a nap –
I know that if you’re stressed you probably have a lot on your plate. And this may not be the most proactive tip. BUT, if you have the time and things are just getting too overwhelming- take a nap. You’ll feel refreshed and ready to take on the world when you wake up. Sometimes a blanket and a soft pillow is all we need!
Go for a long, quite walk by yourself. Take a yoga class (hot yoga is the best!). Dance it out. Go to the gym.
If you just feel so overwhelmed with everything, take a minute and remember you’re only human- it’s okay to not have it together every minute of every day. No deadline or assignment is worth sacrificing your happiness :)
