Life gets stressful. It gets demanding and overwhelming and it can be scary at times. In those times, it’s good to have something to fall back on. It’s good to have something which can relax you.
Everyone needs it too. Life is not simple, and whoever said that lied. Relationships are hard, exams are hard, jobs are hard, and all of it together is just…messy. We’re not robots. We’re humans, and as humans, we can’t have it together every hour of everyday. That shouldn’t even be expected of us. We all need a break. It does wonders. Being mentally well is just as important as being physically well.
For me, when life gets a little too much, I write. Writing is therapeutic for me. Putting all my emotions into words helps ease their weight. But different things work for different people. I had a coworker once who liked to fold clothes whenever she got stressed. I have a friend who watches Grey’s Anatomy whenever she gets overwhelmed.
Life is going to be difficult no matter what. You just have to find a way to deal with it. Finding that certain stress reliever that works for you can make all the difference.
