It is finally time for part two! I know, the anticipation for my rare and rich advice is unbearable so I won’t waste any more of your precious time and get right to the good stuff.

 

4) Don’t take anything too seriously.

In life, there will be obstacles, struggles, success, and disappointment. No matter what situation you are in, it is important to always remember that no problem is too hard to solve or too hard to take. When you stop viewing your obstacles as consequential road blocks, then not only will you free yourself of anxiety, but you may also perform better with the absence of such immense pressure. Additionally, it’s difficult for anything to get you down if you don’t put much weight on the outcome. Less seriousness will lead to a more content and stress-free life.

 

5) Choose your friends wisely.

In high school, the social atmosphere is that of a jungle; there are a variety of different species and having others to count on is extremely valuable. Because of this, you may want to strive to become friends with as many people as possible. This can be profitable, but I must warn that your friends have the potential to damage you as much as they can benefit you. Being selective of whmo you surround yourself with is a worthwhile trait because assimilating to your surroundings is human nature. If you surround yourself with people you strive to become, you will be constantly pushed to improve yourself.

 

6) Breathe and smile.

Breathing and smiling is my back-up response for anything. Whenever I am caught in a melancholy or anxious state, I remind myself to take a deep breath and put a smile on my face. The deep breaths will allow you to find a peaceful state of mind and the smile, whether forced or not, will make it much easier to be positive and happy. These two simple tricks can not only combat sadness or rage, but they serve as a fantastic way to start your day in a joyous fashion. The majority of my greatest days in high school all started with a deep inhale and a beaming grin. Some people use coffee, but all I need to get my morning going is a little B.S.
