Over Being Overwhelmed

9 Nov

Senior year is a mix of many emotions.

Fear.

Excitement.

Nostalgia.

However, one thing is for certain, I often find myself feeling overwhelmed.

Feeling overwhelmed comes naturally when you’re a student. It’s normal.

BUT you should definitely rid yourself of that feeling. You’re in control of how you feel, so do what you can to feel at peace.

There are a few things I like to do when I feel overwhelmed that never fail to help me. Follow these stress relievers the next time you’re overwhelmed! Maybe they can help you too 🙂

1. Listen to music. Try to pick a song that automatically puts you in a good mood. Hey Ya! by OutKast always does it for me. I don’t know why, but something about that song just makes me happy.

2. Workout. I really like lifting weights! It’s great exercise, and it won’t wear you out completely.

3. Take a nap. Sometimes you just need to let your mind and body rest. You work really hard, so you deserve it!

Oh, and don’t forget to breathe. It’s going to be okay! Promise.

    I think we can all agree that a deep breath can help us come back down to center, and it’s never failed me once:)
