Last week my 5 Things to do to Get Rid of Stress post got really popular so it seemed only fitting that I, once again, do an extension of that post. I really liked writing that last post, and since there are some other things I do or you can do that will help reduce stress, I thought I should share them with ya’ll. So here’s five more things to do to get rid of stress! 1 YOGA HELPS REDUCE STRESS Freaking yoga. And I’m not even talking about the cliche ‘om’ with crossed legs and closed eyes, no. No, I’m talking about real actual yoga. I don’t do yoga regularly, but when I have something stressful like a debate or something coming up, I’ll do it. And it is honestly so relaxing it’s unbelievable. It really does get your mind away from stressful things and helps reduce a lot…

Positivity—at least here, in this blog post—means keeping a positive attitude towards everyone around you, whether to a stranger or a known person. Positivity is important for this world to be a better to live in. Okay, first and foremost, I am not at all a cheesy person. I like realistic things in reality—fantasy belongs where it is—and in saying that I am in no way contradicting the fact that fictional characters aren’t real—they very much are—but let’s face it: reality is reality. So this may sound cheesy, but it is an important step to being a better person. Secondly, if you’re thinking why a thirteen-year-old boy is teaching you this, it’s because I’m not—my grandfather is. So now that we have gotten that across, let’s dive in. BE DETERMINED TO BE POSITIVE I don’t know how many times I have said this—it feels like a million times, because I…

Hey. So I’m back today with a new blog post on how to start setting goals that you’ll actually be able to achieve. Everyone always says ‘Learn your Goal and Strive Towards It’. But they never tell us how. Setting goals is easy. But striving for them? Nah. I could say ‘I’ll earn 100k pageviews in one day;)” but we all know that’s practically impossible. 99 percent, what’s going to happen is I’m going to see a cute tumblr quote about having dreams and just sit back and be like, “Yeah, I’ll just keep on dreaming my dreams.” But that’s NOT IT. You have to work for those dreams to become reality. But working…that can be hard. IDENTIFY WHERE YOU’RE STRUGGLING What this means, for me, is identify why you can’t achieve all the goals you previously set. Is it because they are too hard? They’re out of your league? You’re…

Start Saying No. Back at the beginning of March, when I first added this post to my March schedule, I wasn’t really qualified enough to do this post. I had never really refused someone. I had never said no to an opportunity, or to a choice. But now I have. Twice. To BIG opportunities. And no, they are not blogging related, (I hope to get there someday), but they were kind of big. I refused them because I didn’t want them and wasn’t comfortable with them. THIS APPLIES TO ALL First of all, what I’m saying applies to all kinds of things. From sponsorships to exam opportunities. I’m going to lay it down clean and clear for ya’ll. IF YA DON’T LIKE IT, IT’S NOT WORTH IT. (If you’re a kid, don’t go telling your parents you’re going to drop out of school because I told you this. I already…

An Introvert’s Bucket List. I don’t know if you have or haven’t already gathered from looking at my blog, but I’m an introvert. Um, correction. I used to be an introvert. When it came to socialisation, I was very bad. I couldn’t order food for myself at the restaurant (yes, the situation was that bad), I couldn’t ask an air hostess for water, I couldn’t even ask for the wifi password. But now, I’m very happy to say, that I am an ambivert. I’m not totally outgoing, but at the same time not totally shy. I can with some level of confidence, do all of the above. So if you’re looking for a post that will give you things you can do to become totally outgoing and a complete extrovert, then I’m sorry, but this is not the place for you. But if you’re in search for activities to get…
