Stress Relief!

The first semester of college is a big one. There are a lot of new experiences and things going on which can bring on a lot of stress. Thankfully I learned some wonderful tips and tricks for stress relief last semester that I have carried over to this semester! First: coloring/drawing. I am not a very artistic person, but I LOVE to color. Coloring has been proven to help with stress relief and calming anxiety! The best part about this trick is that it’s easily found (in stores and then easy to put away), pretty cheap, and it stimulates your imagination! Second: jigsaw puzzles. I was never a puzzle doing person before last semester, and I found that I loved doing puzzles as something to relax (or just for fun). I downloaded  jigsaw puzzles on my phone and asked for them for Christmas! I now have a total of 12 puzzles and 6 of them are at school with me; my roommates and I can’t wait to start! Third: essential oils or aroma therapy. There are a lot of essential oils that can be put on the hands or feet that are used for stress relief, better sleep, concentration, relaxation, and much more. Aroma therapy also comes in many forms such as: lotions, soaps, shower gels, and air fresheners. Bath and Body Works has the BEST aroma therapy collection; a few deep breathes and I am relaxed and sleeping! The fourth and final tip: anything you are passionate about. Doing something that we love is a natural stress relief. Whether that be reading, writing, watching netflix, hanging out with friends, watching a movie, going for walks and so much more; whatever inspires you and that you are passionate about will naturally relax you and make you happy.

Try out some of these tips and tricks for stress relief and let me know how they worked out for you! Remember that there is always someone there for you to help you, and that there are various ways to relieve stress.
