Make Sure To Think About Your Mental Health

Easing stress in your household is easier than you think.

Make Sure To Think About Your Mental Health

With finals coming around the corner I find myself wanting to pull out my hair. I find my best friend crying over one single exam that will determine the rest of her life. I also find myself biting my fingernails in anxiety trying to tame my stress level. This got me thinking, I need to deal with my stress better.

I started doing these 6 things to help me!

1. Face mask

After a long day of work, school, or just a stressful day put on a facemask and put all your worries away. Pamper yourself just for 15 minutes and once you take off your mask, you'll feel like a new you.

2. Bubble bath

Skip the shower, and draw a warm bath filled with bubbles and smells. Sit there and don't think about anything but you and let all your stress escape. I think this is one of my favorite remedies. I usually pair my bubble baths with a cheap little bath bomb that you can find at Walmart, Target, or CVS.

3. Music

Start your morning off right, get up a little early open the doors and windows and blast some nice fun music that you can dance your heart away too. If you start your day happy then chances are, the rest of your day will be too!

4. Essential oils diffuser

If you have no idea what this is, you should. This is probably one of my favorite things in my house, in fact, I have two. All you do is plug it in the wall, put whatever essential oil you chose inside, and then add some water and turn it on. Certain scents can help with certain things, its all about what you like. My favorite is lemon oil it relaxes me beyond belief. I would definitely invest in one of these.

5. Clean

I know this probably sounds dreadful, but trust me it feels kind of nice. Cleaning out your room can help with your stress and eliminate that stress and anxiety when you walk through your room. Once you've cleaned out a little it feels empowering to throw things away that you don't need in your life.

6. Candle and wine

I think this one is everyone's favorite, just because it's so simple. Yes, you heard me, grab your favorite cozy blanket, a bottle of wine, and light that candle you have sitting in your room. Now, sit back, relax, and enjoy some TV. Turn off that phone that you don't need and that is causing you stress.

Cape Cod Irish

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation.
