3 Ways To De-Stress

I know I'm a little late with this post but better late than never right? Since I have been doing exams and exam prep etc. I have noticed that I was getting more and more stressed out over things related to exams and just small generic things. My skin is the biggest giveaway that I am stressed as I have big breakouts. I'd just thought I'd share a few tips that help me to de-stress in the hope that it helps others.

1. Making Time For Yourself
You may be thinking yeah, yeah, well that's obvious but do you actually do it? I know that I forget sometimes when deadlines are hanging over me and there is so much to be done. By giving yourself an hour or two to relax and chill out helps me to be in a better mood and frame of mind when going back to the work rather than sitting at the computer trying to actually do it which results in less work actually being done because I've been distracted.

2. Go For A Walk
If I am really stressed out and need some fresh air, I will go on a short walk just so that I can get out of the 'work environment' and clear my head a little and distract myself. You don't have to go for a walk as it could be as simple as just going to the kitchen to get a drink or something to eat as long as your'e getting away from the room and doing something else. You could even have a quick chat whilst you're there to engage with something else and talk about something random.

3. Meet With Friends
If there is a group of you that are feeling a little stressed or just need a reason to meet up then why not? You could go for a meal, shopping, day out, picnic, literally whatever you feel would be best. I'm sure you wouldn't be the only one to benefit from it as people around you will be more relaxed as they can see that you have relaxed and there isn't a large amount of tension.
