Stress Relievers - January 9th 2009, 11:48 AM

I'm under a lot of stress right now. I have way too much on my plate.

Here's what I have to work with:

Fundraising efforts for two clubs,
one of which is going to a competition in March,
the other is going to Washington DC to be in the inaugural parade in a week.
Which means that I'll be missing half of mid-terms week,
so I'll have to take my exams before I leave or after I come back from DC.
I need to study for them.
I have a project due next Friday for my English class,
and I have 4 mini History projects due on the same day.
I have the final draft of a research paper due on Monday,
and a script to write sometime today.
I have some make up work for a couple of my classes.
I need to memorize two pieces of music.
I have a paper for extra credit that I need to finish and hand in sometime soon.
I have practice almost every day after school.


I need to do all of this by the end of next week, which is the only time I'll have before the term ends.

Anyone have any simple stress relievers that can help me? I'm walking a tight rope here and I need every bit of energy I can muster.


I'd sing you a song, but I'm feeling quite off
in my heart; it's occupied,

and now's not the time.

Sex!

In all honesty yes Sex.

To look at the benefits of sex Steph you should read about hormones! You know it girly!

Added you to my friend list again by the way, silly forum crashing and what not!

Failing sex, you just need sometime to not be stressed. Give yourself an hour break where you can go hang out with some friends of yours. You told me before you like to play video games, I'm sure there is a guy friend of yours that you could play some Super Smash Brothers with, or somethign similar. Stress removers.

But generally I find sex is very helpfull especially rough sex if your stressed hahah =)

Ugh. I knew you were going to respond with that. Psychic powers +1.

I'll probably play some video games sometime but I don't think I'll have much time to socialize. I've already missed a school function because I was just so burnt out.

Dude, I feel ya.
Stress relievers? ...one can do more than just...get it on...to relieve stress. Believe it or not!
I play two sports (albeit not consistently) but knowing all about hormones, endorphins are released when you get offa TH (it's hard...yeah...) and start movin'! (:
Some you-time (just sitting up in your room, listening to music/reading) should be in order as well. Just so you don't have to think all about the stressful things.

Get adequate sleep/rest! Oh, and also...stay hydrated - you just never know how great you'll feel once you start carrying around a water bottle and drinking consistently.

I'm such the model patient, I have a plethora of stress relievers and a really good link if you're interested.

Now those are some stress relievers that I can abide by. I'll start drinking more water.

Well, moving won't be hard, as I have Marching Band practice almost every day after school next week. There's a whole lot more activity in that than you think there is. There's a lot of muscle endurance in marching. We band kids just make it look easy. xD

I also had a nap today. I know that I haven't been getting the sleep I need cause over vacation I would go to bed at like, midnight and 1 in the morning. Stupid later release of melatonin. I've been going to bed earlier and earlier, but I can feel the effects of sleep deprivation. I'll have to ask my mom if we can go get some more chamomile tea. That usually puts me to sleep easily, or at least calms me down.

okay, how about you list them in importance and work through them one at a time rather than trying them all at once? Then you can tick off things as you do them, and feel better as your list gradually goes down and you can see what you've done.

Yeah, I have a list down, but I need to reorganize it. I wrote it as things came to me, but they aren't in a good order for taking care of things.

Ok this may sound really stupid but it actually works

With your right thumb and index finger, grab the space thats between your left thumb and index (the flabby skin space just between the fingers) and rub it in circles (counterclockwise).

Then try grabbing your arm about 2 inches away from your wrist and do the same.

then try it with the space between your feets thumb and index.

I hope this wasnt confusing

so rub, for a few minutes and that actually stimulates the nerves on your body and relaxes you.

I find yoga extremely relaxing. Even if you just took some time to lay down and listen to some calm music and try not to think about anything for whatever length of time. It's really relaxing. Exercise also decreases stress, so doing sports would be nice like suggested, but you can also jog or whatever you want.

Good luck, take a deep breath and relax.

OMG That's amazing. I tried it and it worked. I'm totally doing that in my classes when I get stressed.

Sunshine - I want to try yoga. I think maybe after this month I'll take it up, because it's something that I've always wanted to do. As for the exercise, I'm getting that because I'm in Marching Band. It doesn't seem like it's all that active, but believe it or not it takes a great deal of mental and physical concentration to do. It's not a "sport" but it's just as hard to do.

Re: Stress Relievers - January 10th 2009, 05:58 PM

There is a great leaflet up at my college about relieving stress. Simple stuff like hugging, telling your friends why you are stressed. I also find doing breathing exercises (closing your eyes, breathing in for 5, then out for 5 is a simple one). Doing a bit more exercise is good, when you don't have time this can be quite hard, but what I used to do was jog home from school instead of walking. Not only did it not take any time out of my day, it actually saved me time!

Sex only works if you have a partner to do it with.

And I'm lacking a partner, considering that I'm single.

Punch bag....give me 5-10minutes hitting it hard and frantic, it de-stresses me a hell of a lot.

Organise the list into what's most important. Maybe speak to a teacher and try and not be set any more work? Or just important assighnments? Is there anything on the list thats not really important? Like an assighnment that does not go towards your final grade?

Try and take a short break each day. I've taken to spending 30mins- 1hour after college with friend having a coffee and chilling...it helps me recuperate...
