Summer is coming to a close and those pre-school year butterflies may be coming up. The new school year means seeing friends again, another year closer to graduation, and some new expectations. More work, new tests, and different teachers can be a little overwhelming especially when throwing parents/home into the mix. It’s a time when school, home, and friends have to be juggled once again and that is often not a very easy task. One thing that may help ease the pressure to be your best is to take some time for yourself. Schedule a time at least once a week when work, family, and friends are put aside. Use this time to think and relax alone, being unclouded by pressure from anyone else. This “me-time” can help clear any negativity or stress from your mind and allow you to enjoy being young in a time when everyone expects so much.
