If you are like me, you find it pretty easy to just let your stress overtake your life. Whether you have a math test you have not studied for, or an event you're stressed about, here are some things that just might help you out.

1. Make a list

When you have all of your to-do tasks written down right in front of you, it makes it a whole lot easier to realize what you need to get done

2. Create a calendar or schedule

Whether it be a weekly planner or a calendar, it always makes it easier when you can have your days planned out in front of you, dates and times are always a good thing to be aware of.

3. Take everything one step at a time

I understand that life often gets overwhelming, and you want to get as much done at once. But slow down, take a step back and do everything one thing at a time. The more you multitask, the more there is a margin for error.

4. Don't forget to breathe

Stress is stress and it gets overwhelming. But don't forget to take a break and just let yourself breathe. Everything will work out the way it is supposed to.

5. Talk to someone if you need to

I found it really helpful to talk to someone if I felt like my stress levels were getting to be too much. It helped a lot to get it all of my chest, so it is worth a shot to try talking to someone

I wrote this while I was really stressed about a statistics exam!! Enjoy and I hope it is helpful!!

Blue Skies Weren't Always Blue

Overall I'd love to say I grew up a happy overly enthusiastic child that was taught to love herself and be loved by everyone else, but I can't say that and I never will.
