School is coming up, so that means I should probably fix my eyebrows, put some pants on, and stop binge watching Netflix.
Back to school is upon us. Waking up early, going to new classes, meeting new people, having new tasks to do everyday. And of course the constant pressure of getting things done, and graduating. Getting anxiety can be really easily, it can also be really constant. So how can you deal with the anxiety? Or how can you lower the anxiety?
Honestly, I probably am the worst person to be giving advice about how to deal with anxiety. Because I can never get my anxiety under control. But I do know how to prevent it when it comes to school. So lets start with the basic's.
Okay, yes you have probably heard this a thousand times. But seriously, would you rather be up all night, on a school night panicking, and trying to finish a school paper? Or would you rather sleep peacefully, knowing you finished the papers and they're ready to be turned in. It is a lot of work, and I know you don't want to do the work. But trust me, it will be worth it in the end.
DON'T JUMP AHEAD.
High school/college/middle school can be so much fun, there are so many clubs you can join, so many new classes, sports teams and so much more. Enjoy it, you only live once! Sign up for what you love. BUT, do not jump ahead. Don't get caught up with the fun and sign yourself up for too many things. You know how far you can push yourself, so do not test those waters. Especially during the school year. Go slow.
HAVE A ROUTINE
This one is really important. I mentioned this in my last blog post but I will mention it again, having your day planned out in your head by your daily routine helps you save time and save the stress. Wake up the same time, leave the same time, things like that are simple but can help a lot.
Last but certainly not least, take care of yourself. You know what your physical and mental needs are, so please meet them. You deserve the best. Never forget that. The school year is coming and my friends I know you can do it! I love you all a lot. And you will survive this school year, just like you did last year, and the year before that. Thank you for reading everyone!
