De-Stress Options After Finals!

Hi! It’s been a while! Since I’ve been here, I’ve moved out of the dorm and back home and I’ve been busy with remodeling my room/cleaning it up, plus homework/finals. So I thought…how about some options to relax after finals are done?! I mean, all of us have our brains stuffed with information, ready to write onto our final exams and now, after all that, we can relax our brains from the stress and do something fun!!!

So here’s a few things to think about doing:

  • Going to the zoo
  • painting/drawing anything you want
  • writing some stories
  • cleaning up your room/living space
  • taking a long bath/shower
  • buying your favorite foods
  • going on a walk/biking
  • taking a nap
  • hang out with friends and/or talk with your family about anything
  • ANYTHING YOU WANT MAN. YOU’RE DONE WITH FINALS. GOOD JOB! 🙂

Just don’t do drugs or drink underage 🙂 that’s not cool. Binge drink on coffee or tea or something. But the main thing is, after finals, give yourself some relaxation time before doing anything else!

Snow Days, Working Out, Health, Stuff

Hey there! If you’re in my area (or any other area that’s gotten hit by the snow storm) then there’s snow EVERYWHERE. It’s wonderful. Basically every school in my town got two snow days because of bad roads and just the slipperyness of snow. So it’s been a weird week for me. I just got done working out in my basement (sort of) because I didn’t really have much to do. I’ve been procrastinating on homework, which I shouldn’t do, but besides that, I wanted to do something that I usually don’t do. So for about 15ish minutes, I was in my basement, jumping around and working out to semi-loud music. Yay!

On that note, working out is important for everyone’s body and keeping it in good health. I’ve been telling myself that I need to follow that New Year’s Resolution of being healthy, but so far, haven’t really been doing a good job because of, well, homework, school, scholarships, work, etc. But I shouldn’t make excuses. A good thing to start getting into shape is to do some sort of short workout every other day. Start with 10 sit ups every other morning before you get ready. Then as you start to get good at it, add another 10, or add on another workout technique like push-ups. It’ll help develop your body and make you stronger and happier. Healthy = happy :).

Another good thing to do is to think about your eating habits. Do you tend to eat a lot of sweets after a meal or nothing at all? What about dessert foods or just your dinner routine in general? One thing you can do is have a fruit to go along with your lunch or dinner, and if you want dessert, have a granola bar or something. Try to pick things out that won’t make your body wanna go kaput. Don’t worry, it’s hard getting into that sort of thing–I’m even having trouble. You tend to see all these great restaurants and fast food places that look awesome. Try to stay away from that and don’t let it pile on you. It takes a wallop to your body and your paycheck.

And don’t lie, we all have those excuses to go out and get something like that to eat. I do too. Like one day, when I had to stay longer at work (which is usually Wednesdays), I wanted to work out that night, so that gave me a “good enough reason” to go buy food at Sam and Louise’s. Yeah…no. I mean, if you’ve been doing great, then sure, go out and buy some juicy hamburgers! But limit yourself!

That’s my little tangent on that. I hope you all have a wonderful snow day and/or weekend! 🙂

Relaxation Tips/Ideas and What’s Happening

Today is the 13th of January 2013. Day 2!

Today is also the first tip/idea/advice giving post of this blog! I’m going to give you guys ideas on how to relax and what you should do with ANY kind of free time you have. I finished homework that’s due this week (that I know of anyway) so I’m relaxing and I thought of this idea! So here we go!

If you have nothing to do, try reorganizing things. For example, you could reorganize your closet, your room, or parts of your house/apartment you’ve been just DYING to take care of, but never had the time. If you have a TV show that you’ve wanted to watch for the past few weeks, grab a cup of hot chocolate or hot apple cider, a huge blanket to curl up in, and lay in bed–watch that favorite show:). Another thing you could do is write about anything and everything, kind of like what I do. You could also draw, take pictures (I always try to do that), work out, play an instrument…there’s so much you can do, that the list can go on forever.

Outfits for relaxation…I suggest a pair of your favorite yoga pants or sweat pants and a tank top. If you’re cold, find a giant sweater you love to wear. You could also wear a pair of leggings and shorts with a sports bra. Dudes, if you’re reading this, I suggest sweatpants and if you just hate wearing a shirt, then don’t wear one. 

Whenever I’m relaxing, I like to make food or eat junk. Like today, I’m probably going to make chocolate covered cinnamon buns. Let me tell ya, they. are. amazing.

Ok, a little off topic from the tips and stuff, I’ll tell you what’s been going on. I’ve been a bit busy with school and homework and scholarships and other bull that I haven’t been blogging! Ah! So, I have to get on top of things. I worked out today, mostly because I have a demo coming up, and I needed to, even though I’m slightly under the weather. But I’m a-ok. 🙂 I had to miss work a couple times last week because of a dentist appointment and a color guard I had to perform. So, less pay for Paige. :/ Oh well, that’s ok. 

I just thought of something else you could do! You can go through your clothes, pick your favorites, and try on different styles. See which one fits you best :). I know I need to do that…I’m such a tomboy though, that sometimes I just don’t care.

Well blah, that’s kind of what I have right now. I had a friend of mine give me some ideas and I’ve been forming some of my own. I’ll credit whoever gives me such ideas. Well, I’ll talk later. Have a totally wonderful week! RELAX 😀

Paige.
