Hi. Yes it is actually me, the blog owner who disappeared from this blog for almost a month - oops. My exams are not yet over, and I am still revising for some of my mock exams but I wanted to get into the swing of blogging again because to be honest I have missed it so much! I guess a part of me withheld starting again because I was stressed out about many things, and blogging just seemed to add to the pile! Nevertheless, I have started to relax a little and I am planning and writing a few posts this weekend in hope to schedule them for one a week at the moment and build up.
In terms of destressing, I wanted to share a few tips on how I liked to relax a little, in hope that it will help you readers have a bit of relaxation yourselves.
DO THE WORK. Procrastination has a way of making me stress out even more. When I need to do something, it rings in my mind constantly until it is done which is both a blessing and a curse. When you need to get something done, try to just get it over and done with as soon as possible, and it will make you feel so much better when the task is out of the way!
CLEAN YOUR WORKSPACE. Whether this be your bedroom, office or kitchen, cleaning and tidying your workspace is a great way to 'productively procrastinate' so to say. I always enjoy cleaning and tidying if I am honest as I hate my room being messy or unclean, but for those who see it as a drag it will all be worth it in the end because you will have a great place to do the work.
TAKE A BATH. When I am super stressed out I like to take a bath with some luxury bath products and just relax. Sometimes I bring a book in the bath with me, or watch YouTube videos on my phone until the bath goes cold (!) but I find baths almost a time-out from everyday life, and the stressful situations.
HANG OUT WITH FRIENDS. In a stressful situation, I find nothing is better than taking time to just hang out with friends. I like seeing my friends out of school, as its more fun for everyone to be out of the learning environment, haha! Catching up with my old friends as well is great, now we all don't go to the same school it is amazing to just chat about what we have all been up to!
How do you destress?
