Now that the school year is starting back up again, I'm sure a lot of you are worried about handling all the school work you're going to have to deal with. Unfortunately, you can't escape doing your work, but you can follow these easy steps to de-stress after a long week!
1. Try a face maskGiphy
Face masks are always something that makes me feel better when I'm stressed and they give your skin a nice glow! When you look good, you feel better - it's science.
2. Make time for friends and familyGiphy
It's important, especially during the busy school year, to remember to spend time with your friends and family. Taking a break from your work and socializing with people you care about can do a lot to relieve stress during a busy time when it's easy to get caught up in just doing work.
3. Organize your timeGiphy
Using a planner to organize what you have to do that week is an easy way to make your life less stressful. I used to never write anything down and always worried about forgetting something I had due in one of my classes. When I started making a list of what I had to get done, it kept me on track and I procrastinated less. Also, I got a sense of accomplishment from checking off the things I'd gotten done.
4. Buy new clothes before the school year beginsGiphy
Creating a new look for a new school year is always fun to do, and you can use your new clothes to express the person you want to be.
5. Listen to musicGiphy
Just relaxing and listening to my favorite songs helps me to relax when I'm stressed out. It's important to remember that the most simple things really do work!
6. Make more time for yourselfGiphy
Finally, remember to make time for just yourself. Whether it's taking a bubble bath, reading a good book, or finally binging that Netflix show you swore you'd start, just make sure to treat yo' self.
Have a great year!
