Going home should be a calming time, but the simple truth is that you’re most likely going to get more stressed out when you finally arrive. Dishes to do, a home to clean, kids to worry about, and a spouse that may just want to sit with you. It’s hard to do everything and it is not always a fun thing to do, going home, but we can relax a little while we are doing everything.

  1. Listen to something. If you ever find yourself doing a task that doesn’t require your full attention you should be listening to something. Dishes, laundry, cleaning, or anything of this nature requires only a little percent of your attention span. Don’t waste that time, instead destress your mind and travel to another world. Put on a book, a song, or something that will challenge your mind to think of something new instead of just, “does this shirt needing ironing?” …

Life is filled with a ton of different situations, and the sad reality is that we aren’t going to like everyone that we are put to work with, we aren’t going to enjoy every group we are a part of, and every event is not going to be the party of a lifetime. Yet most of the times we still have to go, still have to stay, and still have to work with that person. Here are three ways to get through a situation that your are not happy with or stressed about.

  1. Limit interaction time with people you don’t like. You may think, oh this person is apart of my team how am I going to limit interaction time? Well don’t argue with the person, don’t bring up ideas you know will spark debate amongst you two, and try to relay your thoughts through another person. There is a difference though between being submissive and calculating. I’m not telling you to submit to the ideas of the loudest or most annoying, I’m telling you to limit your contact. Don’t make unnecessary conversation, and relay your ideas through another. If you don’t like the way the group is going, talk to someone else and convince them the idea you have is good, and that it can help the group. This way you don’t have to argue, discuss, or say anything to the person that brings you stress. …

Being good with money is something we all like to believe that we are good at, but in actuality a majority of us are doing things everyday that are costing us money. Here are three signs you are bad with money.

  1. You consistently pay $4 for a coffee or $15 for a salad, and can justify it to yourself. First let me start by pointing out that word, consistently because lots of people are going to miss it. If you buy something for lunch or an expensive drink every now and then there is nothing wrong with that, but the problem begins when we start justifying and normalizing the $18 salad we had for lunch. …

Stressed out in the middle of the work day? Bad, but it doesn’t have to be disastrous to your entire day. It’s not disastrous, in my opinion, because you don’t have to stay stressed out. Here are my three really quick tips that you can use to destress at work.

  1. Drink some tea. Tea is awesome and it is naturally a soothing agent. A small cup or warm tea can help to relax your mind, your body, and your muscles in just a few short minutes. You’ll feel refreshed and ready to start the day.
  2. A little TV. So this is one that I really love because TV is amazing, but then again you can’t always turn it on at work. No problem switch TV in with a headphone and a podcast. A podcast in my opinion, is better than music because it gets you to focus on words and things that are actually happening. Instead of being hit with the calming beats of a song you’re going to be getting information, and for me if it is interesting enough, the stress will just melt away. …

As children we are taught that going outside to play is important to our health, and this is only further engrained into our minds throughout high school and college. Yet I’ve personally earned both a Bachelors and Masters degree, and never once has a Professor or Teacher discussed mental health. From Chemistry to Ethics professors, the idea of physical well-being was not lost on me whether it be at Berkeley or Harvard, but mental health was sadly never discussed. Why? Why does something that, according to studies, plagues Millennials and Generation Y never taught to us. …

So here are three ways you can work out stress wherever you are.

  1. Tell yourself what you are feeling. You know those people that you think are quacks, the ones that appear to be talking to themselves. Well rude awakening time, they are the geniuses of society (well some of them) because they’re the ones that have mastered an easy destress tactic. Here’s how it usually works, you say you're stressed out, but keep your feelings bottled up. What you should be doing is talking about the issue to yourself. Telling yourself stressed is a feeling, but really I feel sad, overwhelmed, like things are spinning out of control. …

Get your head out of the clouds, pay attention, and don’t risk it are words that parents, mentors, and teachers tell students every day throughout the world.
