5 Things To Do When Life Just Gets To Be Too Much

For those days when adulting is just too hard.

5 Things To Do When Life Just Gets To Be Too Much

No matter what phase of your life your in, just starting college or just finishing college, we all get to the point where things just feel like too much. Assignments have piled up. You have three exams coming up. You rent is due, but you're broke. Everything is just too much and all you want to do is scream! Believe it or not, there is an easy way to get everything back on track again:

1. Take a break

The only way to reset when you're responsibilities become too stressful is to just drop everything. Even if it's only for a day or a weekend, you need the rest. You're not going to be able to take care of anything if you can't even slow the thoughts and endless to do list in your head. Take a day off work, or pick a day where you don't do anything other than what you want to do. The next day you will feel so refreshed and ready to take on life.

2. Workout

Even if you're not an exercise person, you need to work out if you're feeling really stressed. Working out releases amazing endorphins that easily lift your mood and clear your mind. It doesn't even have to be very rigorous, even going on a walk is going to lift your mood drastically!

3. Practice some self-love

When you take a break, it's also a good idea to catch up on some self love things you probably been putting off in favor of your other responsibilities. Take a nice, long shower or bath. Read a book. Get your nails done. Anything to make you feel good about yourself, and to get your mind of life for a bit.

4. Get away for a bit

Sometimes even near or around your responsibilities can be stressful. You look around your room and just think of all the half finished assignments on the floor, all your dirty laundry, and the fact that you rather just sleep all day. Get away for a bit! Go on a mini vacation to the beach, or hiking. Just anything you enjoy doing, but don't get to do enough, go do it. Occasionally, it's okay to run away from your responsibilities.

5. Take a deep breath and get back on it

The break can't last forever, but hopefully now you feel calm and better prepared to handle everything life has to throw at you. Your responsibilities are always going to be there, and sometimes they are going to be more than you can handle. All you have to do is walk away, take a break, and get back on it when your in a better mindset to handle it.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.
