stress OUT plan.

I'm a huge stress-bug. I constantly freak out over grades, weight, blah-blah-blah.

Stress is bad. It causes acne and tests have even proved it leads to health problems which can, in turn, lead to death.

Below is my "stress OUT" plan, an hour-long (or however long you wish) relaxing strategy. Whether you're stress factor is school, boys, or just life in general, this plan will relax you and give you much-needed "me time". (This is basically an at-home spa day, only much simpler.)

So you say you usually sling your backpack on the couch, grab some greasy chips, and throw yourself onto the couch to watch NCIS re-runs before homework? Well, this time, skip that. When you get home, put your backpack on the couch, and do your homework before relaxing. This makes it easier to fully enjoy the pampering, so you don't have to scramble to finish your Geometry after you've removed that stress. It just builds right back up. If there are problems you can't solve, don't freak out. Leave it there and come back to it after you've relaxed. A few problems won't add up to stress, and taking a break may help your brain work out the kinks.

Gather the essentials below:

1. Bubble bath

2. A calming CD (you can get these at Wal*Mart)
Fill your iPod up with calming, classical music and sounds. Put the iPod on a dock in the bathroom.

3. Comfy bath robe

4. Aromatherapy candle

5. Wine (if legal) or Cran-Grape Juice in a fancy glass

6. Face mask (available cheap at Wal*Mart and Walgreens)

7. Any other relaxation products (foot bath, massager, etc.)

Remember, this is NOT a bath, this isn't about washing your hair and shaving your legs.

First, fill the bathtub to the brim with the warmest water you can handle (don't burn yourself!) and put in bubble bath. Turn on the CD (put on repeat-all), light the candle, pour some wine (or juice), and apply the face mask. Slip into the tub, and relax until you feel everything slip away. When it's time, remove the mask. If needed, reheat the water.

After you are ready to get out of the bathtub, pull on the bath robe. Use the other relaxation products from #7 and then turn go back to that homework to see if you have any more solutions. Look in the book and reread the chapter. If you still can't figure it out, call a friend in the class and ask for help. Just don't stress out. It's all in the mind.
