Things To Do When You're So Stressed You Want To Rip Your Hair Out

Everyone has times where they get so stressed that they just freak out, maybe even have a panic attack. I have always been the type of person to stress out easily, but here are some amazing tricks to try when you're stressed and don't know what else to do.


I know it sounds stupid... but just taking a deep breath can help your brain calm down!

Go For A Walk

Taking a walk can help ease your mind and get it focused on other things.

Take A Hot, Relaxing Bath Or Shower

Hot water is known to help the body relax so take a long, long hot shower or bath to help!


Yoga can help your entire body relax and helps you focus on just yoga, letting everything else leave your mind.

Have Some Pet Time

Animals are proven to help relieve stress and help people relax! Plus, who wouldn't want an excuse to have a dog/cat around?

Go Out With Friends

Friends can always help you through a rough situation. Just try to go out and have a fun time with the people who always have your back.

Get Some Orange Juice

Orange juice helps reduce anxiety! Who knew?!


The smells of aromatherapy can help with stress and anxiety too! Try them out!

Have Some YOU Time!

When you're stressed out, it usually means you have a lot going on, so take a breather and do something relaxing that you love!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
