April has been the stress awareness month for many years now, and it comes right around the time of midterms, papers, and tons of stress from school. Now is the time to find the best ways to get peace and positivity in your life! Here are a few useful tips for how to de-stress for National Stress Awareness Month!
Visit a field of blooming flowers or take more frequent walks through a scenic local park for at least 20 minutes a day on the weekends.
In today’s fast-paced environment, most of our lives are highly dependable on computers, desk jobs, and campus library tables to fulfill our assignments and work tasks. Whenever I’m on campus, I can tell you that the cubicles fill up pretty fast. This action may leave you feeling stressed and pressed for time. Take a break and make plans to visit the botanical gardens, state parks, or family friendly places. This will help clear your mind and bring you some peace!
Visit with your classmates and see if they can help you!
The one lesson I learned as a freshman is that the college experience can be extremely overwhelming. Staying silent and keeping your worries to yourself only delays you from finding the answers to your growing list of college success questions. There is no one better to ask for help than your classmates or floor mates. These people are going through the same things as you, so help each other out!
Invest in an effective fitness journal and make a plan to commit to adequate exercise at least twice a week.
Having a fitness journal and the mindset to workout is a proven winning combination. You can monitor your heart rate, calorie intake, diet and nutrition, and work on your exercise routine for certain areas of your body.
These are just a few easy ways that you can help your mind and body de-stress! Happy National Stress Awareness month!
