Fight Stress and Relax
Posted by Alexandria Pisarczyk on July 16, 2009 at 1:16 AM
Ever feel like the world is out to get you? We all have those days where we just want to scream and rip out our own hair and give up on whatever project or another we should be doing, what assignment we should be working on, or some meeting or another that we may not be prepared for. Below are some quick tips that you may find helpful to cool down, relax, and beat stress long enough to complete what you need to.
Write a List:
That's right, sometimes when you organize the things you need to do in a list, you may feel less overwhelmed. Try not to do long lengthy quotes, and simply try your best to do quick little bullets of the main things you need to finish.
Organize Your Time:
Set a schedule to your list, and stick to it. Stress many times is just another form of procrastination, it's a disability to complete things due to fustration or anxiety rather than laziness or a lack of ambition. Stick to your time schedule; but don't forget to throw in your own time that you valuably need.
Do what you do best, whether it is take a small nap, write, take photographs, read a chapter in a novel, or shop for an hour. Whatever you do just be sure that you let yourself unwind, forget about your troubles and let free. You may go for a walk, watch the sunrise, treat yourself to a baked good you may normally not eat, or a nice cup of tea or coffee while listening to your favorite songs. So relax, it doesn't matter what you do... just do it.
I hope this helped you, if you have any suggestions or references feel free to comment. Just remember, lighten up a bit, even when the world seems out to get you; you're just you, and all you can do is your best. So relax. unwind, and accomplish your tasks.
