Taking A Mental Health Break

Saturday, November 09, 2013

College is stressful beyond belief. I'm paying for it all by myself, and i am aiming for a 4.0, so i am constantly doing something other than relaxing. I feel like i never get time to just lay down and breathe. SO tonight i am doing just that. I think this time to myself tonight will make me feel refreshed and charged to get ready for tomorrows busy today. yes, i am setting myself up for having to do MORE stuff tomorrow, but i think it will be worth it to have a break to destress.

    I am well beyond my college days now, but I think you are on the right track. I lacked money, time, and energy back then. I lived on my own in St. Louis, in a studio apartment that was nicer in my mind than it actually was, worked nights at a gas station that provided me some study time, and went to school full time during the was crazy! I can't even imagine how I did it all now, but it was worth it. Sometimes, we just need to be gracious to ourselves...sometimes...and prevent burn-out by taking a moment to enjoy life, rest, and care for ourselves. It sounds like you are diligent, keep up the good work, but also do what you plan, apply a little wisdom, and take some time to rest your mind and body and take a little joy. Good luck, and keep up the good work!

    I think it's worth it too! I work 2 jobs and I know that's a lot of stress. I can't imagine doing what you are!
