Lately, I’ve been feeling overwhelmed by stress. It’s been hard to focus and I can definitely feel the toll it’s taking on my mental health. I know that this isn’t something I want to live with forever, so I’ve decided to take steps to reduce my stress levels.
The first thing that I’m trying is simple: cutting the bad habits that are building up stress in my life. This means cutting out activities like internet browsing when I’m supposed to be studying or eating unhealthy snacks. Whenever these temptations arise, I’m doing whatever it takes to remind myself of why they aren’t good for me and what discipline needs to be done instead.
I’m also making sure to really carve out time in my schedule just for myself. Whether it’s taking a walk around the neighborhood or reading a book, this time allows me to give my mind a break and enjoy some peace of mind. And last but not least, getting into a regular exercise routine has been incredibly rewarding in improving my mental health in more ways than one!
It’s not easy facing mental health issues head on; however, overcoming stress is something we all have the strength and capacity for if we make the effort for ourselves… Taking care of your body and mind go hand-in-hand—working both together helps us become healthier individuals overall.
