So busy her head is spinning
Hi PLS. I'm just so overwhelmed because of how busy I am. I feel like I never have any free time to relax. I have a lot of homework, tests, projects, assignments and so many different stuff and I'm so overwhelmed!! I'm not sure if it's just me or if that's what middle school is. I literally can't get even 5 minutes to just simply relax!! I need advice!!!!
OK, step 1 is to tell someone. Usually a parent is a good choice. They can help you slow down, get organized, or even reduce the number of activities you do.
Step 2 is to find ways to calm yourself. Anonymous says she can't get 5 minutes to relax. My advice is to make time for nothing. That's right, make some time - at least 30 minutes - to do nothing much. Look out the window, write in a journal, listen to music, go for a walk.
Step 3 is to check in with yourself after you make some changes. Do you feel better? Do you still feel overwhelmed? If so, it's time to go back to steps 1 and 2.
What else, Pink Locker girls? How do you manage busy-busy times?
