I know that I barely have any reason to be stressed, and I’m scared because next year I’ll have school exams, and then I’ll have more exams, and then I’ll have a job, and then I’ll have a family… and if I can’t cope now, how will I cope then? BUT that doesn’t stop me from being SUPER STRESSED OUT.

stress (1)

I know what the problem is – I just get distracted too easily. Every time I sit down to do schoolwork, or to memorise my monologue for my drama exam, or anything, I always end up doing something else that is not at all productive. Sometimes I end up playing games, sometimes I end up doing work that I don’t need to do and won’t actually help me, sometimes I end up on Instagram or Google Hangouts, talking to my friends.

I know what the problem is, but I don’t know how to fix it. I used to be more focused on things, but I’ve gotten steadily worse at it recently and don’t know how to go back. People insist that it’s all in my head, that I have the power to change it, etc. BUT I DON’T KNOW HOW! I don’t KNOW how to stop myself getting distracted. Even if I close all the other tabs on my computer, if I sign out of all my games and Instagram accounts, I still end up getting distracted by something else.

Maybe it is all in my head and I DO have the power to change it, but that’s not how it seems to me. I don’t know if this is something that I have to work through myself, or if other people can help me with it – but if anyone has any advice, PLEASE HELP ME!

Anyway, uh, have a great week guys…

  1. Try working while listening to instrumental music, specially piano. It will help, our brain is made up in a way that it can do multiple task at time, so when we are just doing one task we feel the need to do something else as soon as it start feeling monotonous. Music calms you and keep a part of your brain busy. Try it but strictly instrumental , because if you used the lyrics you will again get engaged in the words.

  2. i have a biiiig to do list with everything i need to do in it. It doesn’t help with all my stress, but the stress that’s caused by being overwhelmed is gone because I can look at the list and say “I just need to do x more things”
