Dealing with stress shouldn't be a thing we need to focus on as teenagers, but I do have days where I get moody. Obviously stress is something you cannot completely get rid of, but the activities below definitely help me feel relaxed. Check out my top ten things to do to de-stress.
Take a moment to tune out the world and tune into some slow and relaxing music.
Have a girls' night in with a lazy day and night of just doing nothing.
Take a nice walk around your neighborhood to get a breath of fresh air!
Go for a run or do as many sit-ups or push-ups as you can. You'll feel good afterward.
Lay down in bed and picture yourself somewhere beautiful. Take a visual vacation!
Talk out your thoughts with someone.
Cut back on caffeine, fatty foods, and preservatives/chemicals in foods. It'll make you feel fantastic!
Breathe in deep and breathe out slow. Controlling your breathing makes you feel relieved and relaxed.
Reading is the perfect way to take your mind off things, so immerse yourself into your favorite book!
And my personal favorite stress relief activity: taking a hot bath.
