How I Combat Stress

Hey! With the lethal combination of work and school, my mind can sometimes become overwhelmed as there is so much stuff to do. However, I have many secret remedies to deal with exhaustion, and I hope that they help you too should  you feel stressed out. Here are the top 5 things I do to keep calm:

  1. A Bath:

For short term stress, this is one of the simplest ways of relaxing. There is nothing like a few bubbles, my favourite tunes and a Lush bath bomb to flush all bad emotions away.


Two of my favourite bath bombs, Space Girl and Sex Bomb.

2. Peace and quiet (or sleep!):

Without sleep, i’m a moody guts, always have been, always will be. Maybe that’s one of the reasons why I stress out a lot. But there’s nothing better than space on your own to stop any conflict with others and to calm yourself down. If you enjoy your own company this might be a good idea.

3. Doing Something I Love:

To distract myself from whatever’s stressing me out, I would do something I love. This could include binge watching YouTube videos, watching a football match or just blogging. Even thinking about this stuff makes me happy, which is exactly why it’s made it onto this post.

4. Planning and Organising:

Preventing stress is a good way to stay happy, and that’s why I over plan things to stop getting overwhelmed. If I leave deadlines to the last minute I get stressed out very quickly, which is why I plan everything a week or so in advance, giving myself more time to party (or watching TV in my case).

5. Watching films (the throwback sort):

As a late 90’s girl, the 2000’s were my prime decade. Most my happiest memories were as a child, which is why I love watching Disney / Pixar movies from the last 16 years. For some reason, they make me all warm and fuzzy inside and make me forget about all my worries; like there is not a care in the world.
