How to Have “You Time” When You Feel Like You Have NO Time

Sometimes it can seem like school is consuming your life. But it’s important to take time for yourself too. Here are a few ideas for things to do when you need some destressing.

1. Put on some comfy clothes

Nothing feels better than getting into your favorite sweats or pajamas.


2. Read a magazine

Pick up the newest issue of People or Cosmo, get comfortable, and start reading.


3. Watch a movie

This is the time to check out that movie you’ve been meaning to watch on Netflix. A classic favorite works, too.


4. Make some tea or hot chocolate

Nothing is more comforting or enjoyable than a warm drink


5. Paint your nails

This is the perfect way to pamper yourself and relax


6. Sleep/take a nap

Finally let yourself take that nap you are always too busy to take
