Freaking Out About Stuff? Yeah. Me Too. So How Exactly Do You Calm Down?
So I believe it is now time for me to bestow my accumulated wisdom of stopping freak outs onto your capable shoulders, young 'un. I now call thee a knight of trying-your-hardest-not-to-freak-out-because-now-you-have-like-wisdom-and-stuff.
But in all seriousness, I do hope these points do help you to calm some loud storms in your life. 'Cause, really, who wants them?
Let it aaaawwwwwllll out
Scream. Shudder. Whatever. Just get all that stress out of your system.
Go to YouTube and watch funny videos
Laughing really is the best medicine like all those grandmas and grandpas say.
Play (or listen to) music
And dance to it too for good measure. It blocks out all that noise in your head.
I already mentioned this in my Foods That Make You Happy post, but chocolate can delete stress. Yes, really.
Call your bestie and talk for an hour
A real stress reliever right there. Freak out to your best friend and you'll feel so much better.
Do yoga or stretch or do something else that relieves tension
Get the freak out off your muscles.
Write everything down
Scream and complain in pixels. Or in pencils, if you're old-fashioned.
Watch a movie
No, no, no. Not a depressing one. A funny comedy, maybe. Or an awesome Avengers-type action movie.
Read a book
Put that confusing textbook down and read something that's actually FUN!
Play some sport
Volleyball, badminton, running, or whatever. Just do something outside to clear your mind.
Now what about you? Do you have any no-freak-outs wisdom to pass on?
