Schools and colleges can be way more hectic than it is actually comprehended to be. Studies show that b-school students these days suffer an equal amount of anxiety-like that of a patient of a mental asylum in the 1950s!
Capitalism has taken over us, and we determine our capabilities based on our productivity, giving us more stress.
While stress is somewhat unavoidable, if you are a student, it does not have to dictate your life or affect your academic performance.
We bring to you top 5 stress-busting activities, which you can use when business school gives you nightmares with tons of assignments and exams.
Music is considered to be the best stressbuster for all ages, and surprisingly, it even works for those who are not an ardent music lover. If you need a short break from long assignments, turn on some music, and relax.
Music can have a profound effect on both your mind and body. It helps you to relieve your stress. You may also dance to tunes of Shawn Mendes, or sing along Adele or Frank Sinatra. It’s the ultimate pleasure!
- Take a nap
A sweet and short nap is always the best option for busting stress. Switch off the lights, get a comforter, and dwell into a world of dreams. When you get up, you will be as refreshed, with little to no stress. But make sure that your nap doesn’t mess up your study schedule.
Set the alarm, get up fresh, and start working again. While we are on for naps, don’t try to pull off an all-nighter. It sounds super cool but makes you grumpy for the next day and takes a toll on your productivity. So, forget your problems for a while, take a quick nap, and start afresh!
- Watch YouTube videos or a series
Watching videos on YouTube is a healthy activity where you can explore different videos on genre varying from ‘how to boil an egg’ to ‘Secrets of the Universe.’ It doesn’t necessarily need to include videos related to your studies.
It can be anything under the sun, which makes you happy. I am sure you will find something of interest and can hook up to it for a quick break. Besides, you can also watch any series that interests you. Popular sitcoms like F.R.I.E.N.D.S. or The Office have been proven to reduce stress. Watch an episode or two while munching snacks and you are sure to relieve all the stress you once upheld.
- Doodling or Colouring
Some people find doodling an interesting way to relieve stress. Doodling your favorite cartoon characters or random objects offers you comfort and a chance to express.
Colouring can also be a good way to take your mind off track for some time. An art technique known as Mandala Technique consists of a design made from circles, which requires lot of concentration to complete. It can prove to be a very efficient stress buster and can calm you down.
- Take a walk
Our generation is unfortunately so hooked up to mobiles, laptops, and internet that we have forgotten that going out for a walk is also a thing. A long peaceful walk around the neighborhood is an activity we all would enjoy, but often sideline. You get to interact with neighbors, and when you look at kids playing outside, you will get a glimpse of your childhood which will surely put a smile on your face. It will also help you connect with nature and the universe, making you calmer and at peace.
Besides those above top 5 stress-busters, you can also take out some time off your schedule and have a decent conversation with your family members.
Speak your heart out to them as letting things out is always a good idea. Go out with friends, have that slice of pizza or cheesy fries that you love and forget about the causes of your stress. If you are someone who can meditate, do take out some time for the same as it can help you get relief from stress.
We hope the tips help you manage stress and you find more ways to keep you off heat. Good luck with your education!
