Nothing at all.
I have been increasingly stressed lately primarily with uni work, and I don’t really manage my stress well. So last night, I felt exhausted and sore but so stressed because of all the things I had to do for uni. But instead of pushing myself and trying to get them done when I wouldn’t have been able to concentrate or do them properly anyway, I lit a candle and read a book, and then went to bed early.
It’s important to realise that you can have HEAPS of things you need to do, but that if you are overly stressed or anxious then trying to do them will most likely take longer than they would if you took the time to distress first and then do them.
So this is where sometimes the best thing to do is nothing at all.
