Stress: How can you reduce it?

Stress has been a very big factor in the world. Everyone has experienced irritation or anxiety, also known as stress. According to Websters dictionary, stress is a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances. Students from all over the globe have been experiencing these feelings on a daily basis, especially at Los Osos Middle school.  6th, 7th, and 8th graders have been experiencing these feelings due to the circumstances of finals, tests, and trying to improve their grade before the final report card gets sent out, considering it is the end of the semester. A student at LOMS, asking to be anonymous, reported "School is very stressful. Especially missing lots of classes. Teacher's seem to not notice the stress they put us all under juggling different projects and have students running around like a chicken with it's head cut off. So I would say that school is very stressful".
School is such an important part in life. It's a place to make memories and to learn new things that you never knew was possible, and being stressed all the time is definitely no appealing. Some things to do is to mediate. Meditation is the key, it relieves all anxiety and stress until you're in your little bubble and you feel relieved. Another thing you might want to think about doing is to light some incense and or light some candles. It is proven that scents can be very relaxing in a way that meditating relaxes you.
If you are a very active person, try exercising! It is a great way to blow of steam and very fitting for some people. You could also try listening or playing music if you enjoy music. Music relaxes the soul and mind and very well may help.
