The cause of my stress: having tried to read my accounting textbook for the longest time, almost 2 days, with lots of breaks in between, or else I’ll loose to boredom, I finally found what seems to be a solution to my anxiety/stress of not being of able to finish in time, the readings, the assignments, and the take home quiz that is due tomorrow.
Making a path for improvement: I’ve been meaning to try to figure out ways to make it easier on myself. One of which is not letting stress get the best of me. I’m going to try to find the ways that works for me and hopefully help others also if possible.
Action: I took a nice long shower, washed my hair (it always works, feels lighter, like a burden is lifted off my shoulders), and laid in bed with my eyes closed, even though I had wished I fell asleep, I knew it was impossible with my state of anxious mind. Yet, just laying down, and afterwards getting up, I felt so much better, I have more energy.
Here’s to documenting a successful attempt at stress management! Next time you’re feeling tired or drained, take a shower and just close your eyes for a bit (30 minutes to 1 hour), and then you can take on the world again :)
