How to Relax for the Super Busy Person 

  I work 17 hours a week and go to college for 15 credit hours this semester. I also have to do hours of homework, food shopping, sleep, clean, and make time for my friends and boyfriend. I’m a very busy young lady. 

The concept of relaxing never really hit me until very recently. I don’t like to relax. I don’t want to relax. I could be doing “better things with my time- more productive things…” But honey, taking care of you and your mental/emotional/physical well-being is productive. You must take care of yourself before anything else. And once I start relaxing, I feel way better. 

With my newfound desire for relaxation, I decided to share a list of how I relax with you all. 

How Jaedyn Relaxes 

  1. I’ll get lost in a book 
  2. I take a warm bath with bubbles and Epsom salts 
  3. I have a girls night where we order pizza and watch a movie 
  4. If I really need it, I’ll take a nap between classes 
  5. I say “no” to things that A. Will overwhelm me B. Make my schedule way to packed C. Don’t pertain to me 
  6. I make time for yoga to focus on mindful breathing. It really helps during the day when you get overwhelmed. 
  7. Talk a walk for pleasure not with an objective in mind (i.e. walking to the dining hall to get lunch doesn’t count
  8. Sometimes I’ll literally just sit down, close my eyes, and practice the mindful breathing mentioned before 
  9. If there’s an app I really like, I’ll play it when I’m stressed and need to get my mind off my something. I’m currently playing Neko Atsume (Kitty Collector) 
  10. I will hug/ cuddle someone. I saw my good friend Amanda one day and walked up to her and hugged her. I’ll cuddle my boyfriend all the time. You know why? Because it’s sooooo cathardic. 
  11. Sometimes my siblings will rub my feet for a fee, but it’s worth it, especially if you live on a college campus and you’re constantly walking around. 
  12. Watch Netflix or TV 

Alright, those are some ways I relax! As people comment, I’ll add on to the post so it can become extremely helpful! 

Stay chill,

~Jaedyn
