Stress is a big part of every humans life, but they are many tips that can be helpful when trying to reduce it.

Tips For Reducing Stress

Stress is not fully avoidable, but some people have it more than others based on their lives and how well they can manage tasks and stress. I have found that managing my stress is a lot easier than I thought after learning new ways to help me manage my time and complete all the things I have to do each day. I feel these tips are learned from my experiences and could work for others too!

One big thing is trying to create a set schedule for work. Most full-time people get 2 days off while part-time usually gets 3-4 so it is important to work longer days to get the most hours and have a few days a week to manage other necessary activities. People must manage their health so there are appointments they must attend. People also need to be fit and active so they exercise and go the gym. Working out and running makes me feel great because my body is healthy and I become healthy more mentally and feel better about myself based on the goals I accomplish. I feel making times for these things on your days off help you space out your days better and not feel so crammed on specific days.

I also love listening to music because it gets me in a better mood and helps me complete my tasks at work and my schoolwork quicker at a more productive rate. I feel my concentration at the gym is much better when I have my own music to listen to and drown out all the other people around me so I can focus on myself and not other people. Music is known to improve health mentally by cheering a person up and boosting their self-confidence.

Money is always a huge point of stress for people so I always try to pick up extra work hours when possible and always try to budget my money. I try not to spend too much each paycheck and always make sure I have money in my accounts for an emergency. I find it wise to really think hard about the items and services you are purchasing to make sure the purchase is really worth it to better yourself and that you are stable enough to buy it instead of just buying everything you see.

A huge part of my current relief of stress is my ability to plan out my days and daily events is by using my Alexa and my phone. I use both these tools to plan out my day and make sure I have all the goals I want to make each day starting Sunday- Saturday and I try to have reminders set and have set days to do things like cleaning and laundry and going to the gym 3-5 times a week. I also work around my work schedule and always make time to do homework. School work is something I used to struggle to find time for until I cut back my work hours and set aside a proper amount of time each week to make sure my work is done.

I also find it useful to have both social times with friends and family, but also alone time with yourself. I set aside time each week to hang out with my friends and family to make sure I enjoy the time I have with them and try to get away with all my stress for a little bit. I also find setting some alone time up for myself can give me time to enjoy quiet time and choose what I want to do with my own free time to enjoy life.

I feel with these tips it has made my life less stressful and I feel happier and healthier both mentally and physically and I hope to continue on this pathway to success to get my college degree and enjoy my life as a good person who is a happy healthy person instead of worrying about stress all the time.

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.

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
