As a senior, I have so much stress in my life right now. I’m worrying every hour about what is going to happen, and if I’m being honest, I’m not handling this as well as I could be. I’m missing out on many high school events. Wondering if I’m going to miss out on my last prom, my class trip, or my last sporting event. I have scholarships due at the end of the month, I can’t have face to face conversations with the person editing them. i’m stressed beyond my words.
With the stress that I have, I know I need to keep myself busy. Over the past few days, I have made myself do some big things, I have cleaned and reorganized my room, painted my room, helped my mom organize the kitchen. I have also been writing many scholarships, working out and making daily to-do lists. This virus has put a huge change to our daily schedules. I have decided to keep things as close to normal as possible. I have an alarm set for nine every morning, this is two hours later than normal but it still makes it so I can be productive. I eat breakfast and get ready right away. I then make a to-do list and get started on my day. I have made it a goal for me to stay productive over the next few weeks to help me keep my mind off of what’s making me stressed. I keep things very bottled up and just break when my bottle is full. For this break, I will be focusing on my mental health. With the stress of senior year being on my shoulder, I need to let my emotions out before my bottle is full. If you’re in the same boat, let yourself cry, talk to someone, do yoga. Find something you enjoy!
