The Best…Way to Destress, Part 2

by Siandhara Bonnet, Editor-in-Chief

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

As school continues, there are more lessons which of course means a bigger work load. This could also mean late nights doing last-minute homework. There’s also the weight of extra-curricular activities, applications, and jobs. Another good way to destress is to do breathing exercises. Keeping a rhythm while breathing can calm and ease one’s mind.

Doing breathing exercises is one of the easiest things to do since it doesn’t involve anything or anyone else. It doesn’t cost anything and it’s simple. Take a deep breath in and then let it out. While breathing, having your eyes closed is also beneficial since the cause of the stress is blocked visually; out of sight, out of mind.

There appears to be no downside to this easy method other than it takes a couple minutes away from the current project, but that’s not always a bad thing. This will literally let you take a breather.
