We all know when times get rough and you become stressed by everything going on. Work is busy or the college or university workload can be a lot but I think it’s so important to find the time for yourself. Have a bath, watch a film, read a book or go for a nice walk somewhere. Having the time to yourself can be really helpful as it can help you to think and reflect on everything and be in a much better place. I find that when I had a nice bath with some Lush bath bombs, watching Miranda as I soaked was so nice for me as it made me just relax and stop.
Now being at university, working and socialising I find that having the time to just stop and relax can be hard to do. I think it is good to find the time to do this because it can really help you as a person and can help your mood. From me having a nice hot bath I felt much happier and at ease with everything as I had just relaxed and chilled out.
Life can get busy and complicated where you feel as though you are always on the go. It can be tough but I see it as; there will always be the time if you make it. Have a free couple of hours or an evening where you can do what makes you happy then take it. It can really help you, whether you think so or not. If you want a walk where you can take in some fresh air and look at the nature then do it! Life gets busy but make the time for yourself- you won’t realise how much you need it until you do it.
When life gets too hard, just think about it logically and how it’s straightforward. I like to put it in boxes and files in my head where I can organise it and make a plan to handle it all. Whether that’s for the workload or things at home or your job, you can always find a way to control the stress and make the time for YOU. That’s all that matters.
So when you feel yourself getting upset, stressed or you feel as though you’re not yourself then take a moment to just stop, think in the present and revaluate everything.
You are all that matters, don’t forget yourself and your time out.
Until next time,
