The Best…Way to Destress, Part 1

by Siandhara Bonnet, Editor-in-Chief

Our staff chose various topics to review and share with the students at LHS. This is part one of a 3-part series.

With the weight of grades and extra-curricular activities, students are put under a lot of pressure. Stress builds up and it needs to be let out. One of the best ways to do this is to find a distraction. Some play video games, some read, some play music, some write. It all depends on the person.

Finding a distraction is one of the easiest ways to destress. Walking away from a current project, tough assignment, or just life in general, lets the brain relax, and focusing on something else lets the stress flow out of the body and out of the student’s thoughts. It provides a little breather from the workload.

On the downside, finding a distraction may occupy all of the student’s time and make them forget about the previous task altogether. So, if a student uses this method, set a reminder to finish up whatever was causing all that stress.
