Stressed? Overwhelmed? Hopefully these help you as much as they did me.
I know semesters end can be really stressful, especially with whatever other issues are going on, and with work piling up. I feel similar. I spent some time collecting making this post for mostly self reference, and hopefully they will help others as well.
Just remember, taking breaks are Ok. They aren’t a waste of time. “To quote a friend of mine. If you’re so stressed that you’ll do 12 hours of productive work in 48, but you could relax for 4 hours and then get in 16, you’ve profited.“
Oh. one last thing. subitized.tumblr.com/roses. It looks wonderful and helps me a lot.
If things are really serious, and you don’t know what to do: 1-800-273-8255. It is the national suicide prevention hotline. Even if you don’t plan on suicide, they help a lot with serious stress and emotion related crises as well. They are nice, calm, helpful and friendly. Asking for help is ok. Wether it is from friends, acquaintances or a hotline. We all need help sometimes. You arent being a burden. It is a nornal thing to do and it is part of what makes us human.
Just remember, you can get through this. Just one step at a time ok? You aren’t alone. (If you need someone to talk to, don’t hesitate to PM me as well.)
