  1. Drink more water! Experts recommend drinking half your weight in ounces of water.
  2. Journal! Think about the highs and lows for each day.
  3. Exercise! Even taking a walk outside will clear your mind and help you feel less stressed.
  4. Cook a meal! Knowing what goes in your food gives you insight on how you’re fueling your body and what it can do for how you feel throughout the day.
  5. Take naps (if necessary)! Getting enough sleep is important for cognitive functioning and happiness.

How to Find Peace in Everyday Life:

  1. Do what makes you happy.
  2. Know that everything will be alright.
  3. Take breaks, rest.
  4. Spend time with friends and family.
  5. Go outside! I find that sitting in front of my computer or using my phone all day really drains me. Nature just has a way of waking us up and freeing us. If you’re feeling stressed, take a step outside and enjoy the trees and plants around you. Feel the breeze in your hair and hear the sounds of nature.
  6. Finish tasks. If procrastination is stressing you, end your torture. Finish whatever you’re pushing off and then be free!

How to maintain a healthy friendship 😃!

How to maintain a healthy friendship:

Talk to your friends–if something is bothering you, your friends will be there.

Be respectful–conversely, if someone doesn’t want to talk, respect their decision. (but be ready with a hug!)

Have fun–I know, I know, it’s such a vague and overused expression, but planning a fun day with your friends really do help make everyone closer

Make sure it is not a one way road–It’s important to know when you are in an unhealthy friendship, and that is usually when one person will do anything for the other while it won’t be like that the other way. Also, make sure that you’re giving and working for the friendship as well.

Tips on Opening Up to Friends

    1. Friends can be trusted. Don’t be ashamed to talk to your friends!
    2. Don’t force yourself to tell a friend something, because it takes a lot of time to build that trust, so just say it when you think you can.
    3. You’re not a burden by entrusting your friends with a piece of information about you, because your close friends will care about you no matter what. They want to know more about you and help you out.
    4. Set a date to tell your friend, so you don’t keep pushing it back, if you’re afraid. It’s going to be just fine

 

  • Everything is going to be alright. Don’t overthink things and just take it easy. It will all work out and your friends and family love you.

  1. Go outside!! It’s not good for your mind or your body to stay pent up inside all day. Go outside and get some fresh air, and just feel the stress blowing away!!
  2. Listen to your favorite music. Whether it be classical, rock, pop, or country, listening to your favorite genre or your favorite artist will be sure to bring up your mood and help you forget the stress in your life.
  3. Do some Yoga. Even if you have no idea how to do yoga, no biggie. Search up some moves online and try it out, because it helps to calm the mind and the body in times of extreme stress and tension. Or if you’re not into yoga, at least exercise 🙂 It’ll make you feel much better and happier!
