Hello again Raptors!
This last week has definitely been very busy for me. School is honestly kicking my butt. So much to study for and keep up with that I feel like there’s not enough time! Well, at least that’s what it feels like. We’ve all been here, am I right? Time is so precious that sometimes we take it for granted; therefore, I decided to take a step back and look at what’s happening right now. I want to share the things I do to feel less stressed and how they’ve helped me in the past.
- Listen to music: Music is so important to me because it honestly takes away the stress and can help me feel happier or excited about what’s coming my way.
- Drawing: So I’m no artist, but I do enjoy sketching random things in my sketchbook. With some colors and photographs I may have around, inspiration strikes! I then have something to look back at and remember that it’s good to distract yourself from everything else once in a while.
- Shopping: Alright, I know this is not for everyone, but I do enjoy walking around a store and seeing what’s new. It relaxes me and it makes me excited about the change in seasons and gives me ideas on how I could decorate different parts of my house!
- Time with God: I love spending time with God. This means listening to podcasts, reading my bible, and singing along to my favorite Christian radio station. I don’t define myself with a specific religion, yet He is very important to me and maintaining a relationship with Him is something that will always be part of my life. As a result, my worries and the challenges that I face all become easier to overcome.
Well Raptors, these are the things I do when I’m facing too much stress at school, home, etc. and they have helped me so much. I hope you can reflect on the things you can do to help you handle the challenges that life brings our way.
