Stress Free

Sunday, January 19, 2014
Hey dolls!
The last 3 months of 2013 have been very stressful and just in overall exhausting.I haven't had time for my blog,for exercise,healthy food or anything but studying basically.
As a result of all that I had problems with sleeping,metabolism,I got a lot of headaches and my hands were shaky at all times.My skin also looked bad.It was just a bad time in overall.
For this year I decided to make it less stressful.

1]The first thing I did-I cut out my extra activities.I still go to Red Cross meetings but all of the other things had to go away.[Besides,I can still take them up again when I'm ready.]

2] I started organizing my time better.I come home,rest an hour-two,then I do my homework and study for the next day.I usually studied two days ahead.On weekends,I organized the time for myself and time for studying.[I.e.;On Saturday I would study up until lunch and then after lunch I would relax and do whatever I wanted.]

3]I try to exercise every day-not an hour per day,tho.About 30 minutes a day of workout.Once or twice a week I do a full one-hour workout.It helps to relieve my daily stress.

4]I improved my sleeping pattern.-This was tough.My sleeping pattern was horrible.I would go to sleep at midnight and wake up at 5 am,or study at night then go to school at 8 am.I literally forced myself do go to sleep at a normal time.

5]I started eating healthier.I cut down on the junk food,sodas,sugar etc.I try to eat as healthy as possible and I've been quite good at it.Yay!

6]More water!I still need to improve in this.I just don't get thirsty.Humph.

7]Focus on the good people.I used to stress so much about the fake,wanna-be's,the idiots who would talk to me etc.I don't do that anymore.I hang out with the people I like,I have fun with them and I just push the bad people at the back of my head.

I do realize stress will always be present,but for now I'm focusing on minimizing it as much as I can.

How do you deal with stress?Let me know in the comments below!

  1. I've been stressed with revising and it made me literally collapse after every college day, but now I've started a revision routine and I'm drinking more water... I'm managing it much better! Make sure you give yourself a reward even if it's 30 minutes of your favourite show because it will get you through it I guarantee. Good luck, hope you get the results you want x

    1. That's exactly what I've been doing!Thanks for the support! x

  2. This is really helpful, I've also noticed since I started eating healthier and exercising I've seemed to become a lot more stress free:) Great post:)
