We have all had that nervous feeling in our stomach: summer break is coming to an end, and you’re dreading that first day back. After all the days of sleeping in, staying up late to enjoy the summer nights, and no homework, it’s time to start the school year all over again. While it can be tough to get back into the swing of things for school, take this moment to reflect on all the fun, adventurous, or relaxing activities you experienced during your break. We all know that school can be stressful, so let’s take some time to learn some ways to cope with our stress.
During school we have homework, exams, afterschool activities. . .the list can go on. How do you plan to carve out time to take care of yourself? Here are some ideas: take a long walk, try meditation or yoga, breathing exercises, or even take your time eating a good meal.

We are all different, and we each have different stresses coming at us daily.
