It's Never A Bad Day

     So most people have already started school by now. I’m sure you’ve already gotten used to the whole ‘go to school in the morning and come back in the evening’ schedule. As frustrating as it is, you just have to bare with it because the significance of education is beyond explanation. Nevertheless, there are some days where the work piles up on you, the pressure gets to you and you just feel so overwhelmed by everything. Everybody has those days, even the people who seem like they have their whole life together can crumble at some point. I’m here today to restore your hope and to help you get through those days.

    If you’re a person who tends to get anxious quite easily, just know that you’re not alone. Try reaching out to a friend, a parent or even a teacher if you feel like you’re stuck in a bubble you just can’t seem to pop. I know this is the most cliché thing to say, but everything is going to turn out alright, even if you feel like the whole world just shattered into pieces over you. Instead of worrying about the things you have to do, start doing them one by one and just check them off that list. Remember, deadlines aren’t everything. If you really have to get an extension, go ahead. You should always remember to not push your limits too far. Pushing them a little is good, but you must always remember to save some time for yourself.

    You should always leave a part of the day unoccupied. No matter what day it is, you should always have some time to reflect and relax. It helps if you have a hobby. For me, that would be my penny board. I always make sure that I have some time to penny board during the day because not only does it help me clear my mind, but it makes me happy and energises me. It’s that rush I get in my body because it’s something I love. For you it could be swimming or even writing, but whatever that is, do it. If you still haven’t found what you love doing yet, go experiment! The main point of this is to just have some downtime by yourself to think about the good things and to get back on track; even sitting outside with some fresh air could boost your mood so much!

    Now let’s go back to the time when you’re actually really stressed and overwhelmed. At that moment of time, you have to drop everything. Not literally, but you need to put aside whatever you are doing and take a break. When I’m stressed, I like to put on a mask because that just relaxes me so much. Go pamper yourself! If that involves chocolate and/or ice-cream, go get it! My ultimate comfort food is just a plain avocado with a sprinkle of salt. No matter how down in the dumps I may be, avocados always find a way to cheer me up!

    Whatever it is, the most important thing is to have hope and do what makes YOU feel happy. Remember that there is always a way! Don’t give up on yourself, because I haven’t yet and so shouldn't you. No matter what the setbacks, go on and show them, prove to them that you can do it and that you can do anything!
