If you do anything in life, you know how stressful it can be! So here are a few ideas on what to do when you're getting stressed..(trust me, I know the feeling!)
1. Color in a coloring book
Coloring is one of the most relaxing things to do. Even if you don't have one of those fancy adult coloring books, just go online and print a coloring page out! It's that easy! Coloring eases the mind. But if you're like me and can't get into the fine lines, don't get frustrated, just do something else on this list!
2. Take Photos
Whether or not you have social media to put the photo on, just go outside with a camera or your phone and take pictures! Or take pictures of your house and the things around you. It really puts things into perspective. Plus, you just captured a moment in time! If you don't have ideas of what to photograph, look online! You can take pictures of your bookcase, your food, or yourself.
3. Read a book or go to a Library
Reading can take you to places you've never been. Also, going to the library is very relaxing! (Here's a little secret; as I write this article, I'm in a library!) Libraries are great ways to interact, volunteer, and discover new things. Try it out sometime!
4.Talk to someone you love
Talking is always important. Especially when you're stressed, it's like you could never stop talking! With someone you love and trust, talking is vital to calming down when you're stressed. It can really keep your mind off of things!
5. Have some coffee!
Mmmmm...coffee! One of the best de-stressers out there. Make it with creamer, sugar, whipped cream, anything at all! (Maybe even candy on top?) Or, if you don't feel up to making your own, go to a cafe! Cafe's are relaxing places too!
6. Do your makeup!
Ahh, doing your makeup. Fun, right? It's actually one of my coping skills! Bronzer, blush, lip balm, lipstick, mascara, and all kinds of eyeshadow! Doing makeup is also a good way to relax. (Plus, it makes us feel pretty!)
7. Watch a Disney Movie!
Watching movies are fun, right? Then you've got your disney movies. Those are even better! Just grab that coffee you made or went to buy, grab a fuzzy blanket, and maybe a friend, and press play!
8. Look at pictures of cute animals!
Puppies, kitties, foxes, pandas, monkies, you name it. They're all adorable! Just search the internet for cute animals, and the internet will provide you with cute animals galore! Just dive into your laptop or computer and giggle at how cute they are!
9. Remember this...
You have so much to do in this world. Just make sure it makes you happy. Don't be pressured to do something you don't want to, or that doesn't make you happy. Write, journal, publish, produce, you name it! You can do it. Let me know in the comments below what you do when you're stressed!
