It's Okay To Take A Break

reducing stress
It's only been a couple weeks into this college term.

But I already feel like I could be reaching the breaking point.

It's like I'm an elastic band, and I've nearly stretched myself too far, I'm going to break.

So for this weeks post, partly for myself and for others as well I thought I should write not only tips of how to retreat from that breaking point but also a reminder.

A reminder that it's okay to be weak sometimes.
It's okay, to want to cry.
It's okay, to want to take a break.
It's okay, to want to let everything go.
As long as we don't give up in the end.

People will break for many reasons, for me it's stress. I do not deal with stress very well sometimes, okay pretty much all the time. But I'm working on it.

As I'm not only reducing my stress during a stressful situation, but also trying to find ways to reduce it in other parts of my life that I can control, here's a little list of things I do when I'm trying to not stress.

1. Keep everything up to date.
2. Read about the practical if I'm doing it in the lesson the next day.
3. Put on some music, for me recently it has been the ost's from Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo.
4. Read a book, take your mind away from the stressful things.
5. Write it out, either blogging or in a journal.
6. Lay down with headphones on.
7. Watch a movie or drama.
8. If it's homework that's stressing you, start with the one that you find the easiest, for me it's maths. I do that first then move onto physics.

Just a small list of things I've been doing recently to try and stop myself having any breakdowns over college work.

Before I finish this post, once again I want to say it's okay to want to take a break. It's okay to have an evening off from studying if you feel you can't cope. And if anyone ever wants to talk I'm always only a small dm away on Twitter.
