When I don't have to prepare for a midterm or when I have some free time, I often feel the urge to destress. Below are a few things that I like to do to help relax and rejuvenate myself after a midterm or stressful day.
~ Read a novel over the weekend. Some of my favorite authors are Jane Austen, Edith Wharton, Charlotte Bronte, Amy Tan. I like to read books that leave you with a new perspective on life and the intricate relationships between people in general.
~ Catch up on some of my favorite television shows on abc.com which include brothers and sisters, grey's anatomy, and desperate housewives. I enjoy listening to witty, engaging conversations and I recommend these shows to anyone who wants to find some low key entertainment at home.
~ Shopping in SF! Although some may find it lavish or wasteful, it can be a good form of stress and anger management if exercised with moderation. The key is not to lose your consciousness while enjoying a nice day on which you can dote on yourself a little:)
~New Cuisines, delicious food. Personally, I believe that to look and feel beautiful on the outside, we have to glow from within. And that may come from helping others, or spending time with family and friends. But wholesome, satisfying food is an essential factor to our health. So, in order to accomplish all that we seek from life, we must maintain it. There's no better reason to eat well:)
~Take a long walk by Golden Gate Bridge. When I feel the need to calm my nerves or to clear my mind, I love to come here and take in deep breathes of the fresh bay air. The serenity of the wind and sound of the waves revitalizes me. Time spent in such ambiences convinces me that the simple pleasures of life are what make life beautiful :)
To conclude, I encourage everyone to take some time to explore and enjoy the bay area. Although studying and learning are important, we should always be sure to balance it out with some fun.
