Stress The Killer

So after a two week student vacation or STUVAC as many call it I am heading back to school. So going back to school tomorrow has turned up a few problems. I have no idea what week it is of our two week timetable cycle. Let alone me having any idea as to the subjects I have, the only think I know I have is a free period at some stage tomorrow.

Therefore I am either completely ignorant or I am not the only individual who has no idea what is happening after a period of not having to stress about much. I have not had to think about school or my timetable for quite a while, personally I think that it is healthy to simply forget about many things. This therefore allows you to decompress and destress after a period in which stress has been at an all time high. Just being able to let my mind relax has dramatically improved my mental health in comparison to three weeks ago when I was stressing like crazy over the amount of things that needed to be done before my Trial HSC exams. Therefore being able to just forget things is important to being able to reduce the amount of stimuli and pressure that the brain is under thus improving results due to a more relaxed state.

It is important to stop, decompress, and destress. Otherwise as individuals we will become overstimulated and stress resulting in our health being adversely affected. Stress is a major contributor to many prevalent chronic douses and as such it is important to keep a tap on how much stress we put ourselves under.
