As you may know by now, the end of the year leads to more test, and more stress leads to less rest, and less rest leads to failed test, and so on and so forth. So what can you do to help ensure success at this time of the school year? Well, first things first, you need to relax. Relaxation not only releases pent up stress but it opens your mind to new things and taps into the creative side of your brain allowing you to work better and more efficiently.
“Right now, the only things that I can think about are all test related,” sophomore Brooklyn Davis said. “It’s annoying, stressful, and sad. I have no life outside of school and the life I do have in school is slowly deteriorating. I just want some to relax and chill.”
Another thing many students shy away from or just downright push away that can help relieve stress is reading. Reading, another form of relaxation for some, can take you away from all your stress and put you in a place of your imagination. It’s a good go-to technique considering it’s ease and the fact that your English teacher would be elated to find you picking up a book and enjoying it without constant watch.
“As I’ve said before, reading will always be number one in my book. Anytime I have time I read. Read, read, read. Just can’t get enough of it.” sophomore Kerrigan Hensley said.
Stressing over things, even little things, is never the answer. Stress can lead to depression, anxiety, balding, etc. It’s just not something one would like to have on their minds 24/7. But sadly, we in America attend school and sadly school carries with it buckets of stress. So what should you do about it? What do you do about it? Two very good options were previously brought up but if neither one of those are your cups of tea, make them. It’s not hard to pick up a habit. We do it all of the time with bad ones.
