10 Stress Relievers That Will Never Fail

Stress is difficult, but there's always things to make it better

10 Stress Relievers That Will Never Fail
Grayson Gerber

We all have stress. We all need to deal with stress. These are just a few things that I find helpful in the most stressful of times.

1. Art

Painting, drawing, sculpting, collaging, whatever it is, it is very helpful to relieve some stress (unless you're an art major of course). You don’t have to be good at it! It’s nice to even make squiggles.

2. Watching videos

Netflix is a gift from God himself. Sometimes it’s nice to be doing a task and just have it on in the background. YouTube is also great for just short little videos.

3. Playing with animals

A dog is literally a mans best friend. Being away at college, I don’t have access to my dogs all the time, but anytime I find an animal on campus, I have to spend as much time as I can with it.

4. Writing

Just like what I’m doing now. Creative writing is so much fun. It also helps to write out your life, or feelings, or anything. I like to write letters to my friends a lot.

5. Reading

Whether it’s a Snapchat article or a good book, reading is a nice way to get your mind off of things. It keeps you updated on life, and you actually learn something while doing so.

6. Going to the beach

If you don't have access to a beach, go to a lake, a river or something!! Water is calming and relaxing combined with the sounds of nature.

7. Just go outside!

Nature itself is beautiful and soothing. Bonus: Having a picnic outside and bringing hammocks makes for the best time ever.

8. Hangout with friends

Friends are everything. They help you through so much and are always willing to hang out with you!!

9. Take some alone time

It is nice to hang out with friends, but not all the time. Sometimes you just need some alone time to gather your thoughts and keep yourself together.

10. Take a nap!

Not a long nap, but sometimes naps are very beneficial when having a stressful day. As hard as it can be to get a good night sleep, start with doing that. You will have a better attitude and some of the stress with definitely be taken away.

These are just a few tips that I find very helpful. Stress can be tough, but you can always get through it. It can be very helpful to break things down into sections or make lists and cross things off as you go.

To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before...

One of the things that I love most is space. I am a HUGE space nerd. Literally ask any of my friends. I was first introduced to space when my dad dragged me to see Star Trek. Since walking out of that movie theater in 6th grade, becoming an astronaut hasn't been just some wild dream that could come true.
