7 things to do when you're stressed
By Advice from a Twenty Something
1. Blast Music
While you're getting ready for work or just sitting at your desk, blast that music like you're 13 again listening to Dashboard Confessional.
Although it's often the last thing I want to do when stressed or in a bad mood, sometimes taking it all out on the stair master just feels so good. Plus you feel ten times better afterwards.
While many might tell you this is a bad idea, I say do it. Go to Madewell, get that leather skirt you can't stop thinking about. (Maybe set yourself a quick budget so you don't go crazy), and enjoy. That's guaranteed happiness right there.
4. Take a Walk
Wherever you are, the best thing to do is to take a break and get yourself out of the environment that's stressing you out. Go grab coffee or some fresh squeezed juice, or just walk for the heck of it. It's a great way to distract yourself.
Whether it's painting your nails, wearing a face mask, or getting a quick hand massage at a nearby salon, a little bit of pampering is good for the soul.
6. Buy Yourself Flowers
It's not pathetic, it's proactive. The act of picking out flowers, putting them in a vase, and setting them next to you can be really satisfying. I swear!
Just eat the damn chocolate. Milk chocolate. If you're gonna indulge, indulge.
