De-stressing without our phones

As we continue into the school year, things are becoming more and more stressful, we start looking for new ways to take breaks. However, most often that becomes using our phones and going on social media. While this is okay to use, it is not something that should be our first and only resort. With so many other things to do nowadays, we should start spending less time on our phones to take breaks and more time doing other things such as reading.

I have recently started my senior year and with a free period, I find myself often with nothing to do once I get all my homework done. When I am stuck at school, I think that the only thing I can really use is my phone but that is not the case. I often forget that we have other things we can do such as reading. I know that often we think that reading for school is enough, but it is important to take time to read things that interest us personally rather than just for class.

So as we start to learn again, make sure that we are all taking the time we need to not only get everything done, but do things to destress that isn’t just going on our phone every time we get bored or want to procrastinate. So the next time you need a break, try going for a book rather than a phone.

  1. I completely agree. Reading can be used to de-stress and not just a boring activity that school makes us do. Books have honestly changed the way I relax.

  2. I also feel like reading is an important method that we should be using a lot more often to relax. Some of us probably just go to our phones because we can’t find the right books to read, but once we find the correct books for ourselves, it can be a very effective way to de-stress. Great job!

  3. I agree! Going to our phones is almost automatic, but books are a much more healthy and effective way to de-stress. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I enjoy reading, and I agree that reading can be a great and enjoyable way to de-stress. Thank you for sharing about this helpful way to de-stress which does not involve phones.
