The most helpful thing to do when I’m stressed is to go for a jog with my dog, or even by myself and all the stress is relieved with every step I take. Lastly is music. Music is a very helpful and easy way to manage your stress. Just put on your favorite tunes and let them take your mind off of things.

Abby Bollier Sept. 20,2010 P.5 Abby Bollier Sept.20, 2010 P.5 When I think of a passion, a passion that can change your soul, the first thing that comes to mind is my love for reading.

Play teaches us how to manage and transform our negative emotions and experiences. It supercharges learning, helps us relieve stress, and connects us to others and the world around us.

For me, I like to “keep it simple stupid.’ What I mean by “keeping it simple stupid” is that it is really the simple things in life that make me happy such as waking up every day and being able to walk, breathe, see, and hear. For me happiness is defined not by what expensive things you have, but what truly makes you happy. My friends make me happy, my family makes me happy, shelter, and food while also completing simple goals, make me happy. Webster’s Dictionary defines happiness as: obsolete: good fortune: prosperity a: a state of well-being and contentment: joy b: a pleasurable or satisfying experience. I have a mantra that I like to wake up every day and ask myself “Why am I happy today?” Today I asked myself the same question and answered back with: I am happy because I am awake, and my back doesn’t hurt.
