Time to de-stress


I get stressed VERY easily, and I'm sure many of you do too, but there are also many ways to get rid of all that tension. Here are some of the things that help me to de-stress, I hope some of them work for you!


Hot drinks
Personally, I love to make myself a mug of hot chocolate... it's one of my favourite drinks and I guess I just find it very calming. You could also have coffee, normal tea, flavoured tea... whatever you want really! For me, just the whole holding a warm mug idea seems to relieve a lot of tension!


Reading
I love curling up with a book in a cosy blanket and just letting my mind drift away from the realities of life for a bit. It's something that leaves me so much more calm and relaxed at the end, but I just never seem to do much of it any more and I really still wish I did.


YouTube
I prefer watching YouTube videos, but you could choose to watch films or a favourite TV show. I like to watch something that's quite lighthearted so I usually watch some of Zoe's videos since she always seems to make me smile!

Colouring
I know this isn't for everyone, but for some people it can work really well! There's some really detailed and beautiful adult colouring books available that are meant to be de-stressing. They definitely work for me!


Hanging out with family and friends
Sometimes it's just nice to sit down and have a little laugh with your friends or watch TV with the rest of your family. Whenever I'm preparing for an exam, I always go downstairs and join the rest of my family for a bit, and I always come back to my work with a more positive mindset.

Blogging
I love to write a couple of blog posts and take some photos to help me de-stress since that's something that I'm passionate about and I enjoy. Once you find the thing you love, then that's a great thing to do to help you release all that tension because you just end up having so much fun that you forget about everything else!

  5. These are all great tips to follow, we usually love a good book and a cup of tea to de-stress but we've heard great things about coloring books and will definitely give them a try soon! It's supposed to be similar to meditation, how great is that?

    1. I really want to get into reading again! Well... it's a lot easier to do colouring than to meditate!
