Right now I am in a season of life that holds many unknowns. Things such as where I am going to college, what my major is going to be, where I will be in one year, and many more. These worries can sometimes get the best of me and cause me to feel anxiety. There are a few things that make my anxiety and worry feel smaller and more manageable. I hope they can do the same for you!

  1. Make lists: Break things down into small, manageable tasks. Instead of listing “apply to ___ college” say “download application to __.” Make the tasks smaller so that they don’t seem so daunting, and the more small tasks you have on your list the more you can cross off!anxiety
  2. Do some tidying up: When I have a dirty room it seriously stresses me out. Like, I feel like I don’t have my life together. It is distracting! If you are ever feeling overwhelmed, clean your room and put everything away where it needs to go. You will feel sorted out, accomplished, and ready to take on anything!
  3. Take a walk: Go outside and take your dog, or your mom or sister, for a walk. The exercise will clear your head and give you a break from stress.
  4. Cuddle with your dog: Or, in my case, dog(s). Their unconditional love is guaranteed to calm you down and warm your spirits.
  5. Be nice to yourself: Give yourself a break and don’t be too hard on yourself. Your emotions are valid, and you are not the only one going through a tough spot! You are strong. In fact, you’re pretty stinkin’ amazing.

These all help me calm down and de-stress. But you know what ALWAYS never fails to put my heart at peace? Putting in a prayer to the Big Man Upstairs. Pray to God to give you peace and comfort in your hard time, and ask for His guidance.

XOXO, Chels

Stress is no good. It isn’t good for your body, it isn’t good for your emotions, and it sure isn’t pleasant for the people around you either! When you are stressed, your quality of life is not high and you just aren’t a happy camper! Here is how to stress less so that you can be a happier, healthier you!

  1. Dance it out. Feeling stressed? Blare your music and just dance.
  2. Talk about it. Grab a girl friend, take her to Starbucks, grab a latte, and just talk to her. Spill your guts to her. It will make you feel so much better!53d9b1416a0558.85782649
  3. Take a walk. Exercising gets your endorphins pumping, which make you happier! Being happy helps lower stress. Also, I have found that exercising gives me great time to think.
  4. Go to bed earlier! If you are sleepy, you are unhappy, which can just lead to more stress!
  5. Hug it out. Seriously. Grab your mom, and give her a good ole bear hug.
  6. Do something good for others. When I am serving others, it makes me so happy! I love knowing I am helping someone else and making a difference in their life.

Do any of these things help you stress less? I have so much going on in my life right now, so it really helps to be able to handle my stress in a positive way. How do YOU stress less?

XOXO, Chels
