Simple things in life
It's almost going to be a year since I've restarted my journey as a student, and I guess I forgot how hard a student life can be. These past couple of days have been loaded with work and it won't be getting any easier until the end of the year. I have very little time to even do things that I enjoy and that make me happy... and it has started to take a toll on me... I can definitely feel the stress under my skin every day. It's never easy to manage stress and even though I wish that I could escape to a tropical island... that is not realistically possible right now... So here are some of the things I do to maintain my sanity when I don't have to time to take hours for a bath or take a trip to ease my anxiety.
1. BEAUTIFUL FOOD
The small things in life count and they can contribute to your happiness...
I try to make my meals look very good... like instagram worthy ;) It's always more satisfying to savour a visually pleasing plate right! Make it look real good! I get inspired by a couple of food blogs or instagram foodies.
2. KEEP CALM AND DRINK TEA!
I've also decided to take back the habit of drinking a cup of tea almost every evening. It relaxes me and keeps me awake at the same time! Tea is always good for stress.
3. HAVE A COZY ROOM
When I'm doing homework on my desk or if I'm having supper by myself, I like to lit my candles. the scent and the aromas are very relaxing. It also brings a bit of warmth to the room.
These are really small things you can do to ease a bit of the stress. I have 3 weeks left of school and I'm grinding work like crazy but I have to remind myself to implement these small things back into my life or else I'm really going to burn out.
I hope these small tips will help you!
Happy finals folks!
